I am happy to have my Windows 7 back.

Thanks to my Hewlett Packard Computer's factory backup I was able to not only remove one bad RAM chip that was causing blue screen errors, not Windows 10 but anyway, I was missing my Media Center. I got it all back and then I realized I lost all of my Windows 10 apps.

Its a trade off.

If I wanted the apps I would have kept Windows 10. but Windows 7 has Media Center and I like being able to record the football games and such. I like being able to watch them any time at my choosing.

We have a DVR in the living room. We use it to record soaps. We also watch other programs that are running at the same time so we don't miss all the ones that are deliberately aired at the same time so people have to choose between one show and the other. So DVR is the way to go.

Also, I realize I can't do a lot of things on Windows 7 that I once was able to do for over a year with Windows 10, but there are many pros and cons to both operating systems. The touch screens like windows 10. The mobile tablet and mobile phone users prefer to get their apps from the cloud and onedrive and talk to Cortana. I get that.

It's only sad that Windows has to close some to open others. If it were possible I would rather have a Windows OS that had all the functions and applications of both and that would be well worth paying for. But that ain't gonna happen I would venture a guess.

I have never moved away from Windows 7 and don't intend to until there is no choice! :D

Me neither! I've heard so many bad things about W10 that it has really put me off upgrading (if that's the right word) to it.
