are you working for microsoft? or never used anything else? nowadays yeah it is kinda more secure than 7 but it still is not secure in the slightest and it is so much slower than 7 that it itself much slower than alternatives. to be fair i do not use aero on 7 but i can't disable metro on 10 nor can i disable cortana or the telemetry using up to 50% of the cpu on some machines. sure on a threadripper or epyc it will be faster as 7 can't use all the cores but otherwise i do not expect it to be ever actually faster, faster feeling maybe as it never shuts down the pc fully to make you believe it starts up fast and it caches in ram more aggressively.

It sure is great, if you don't want any real control over your computer at all (forced updates which can break things, telemetry which can't be switched off totally, 'features' like Edge which push themselves down without authorisation).

Don't even get me started on what a pile of poorly documented garbage things like ReFS and Storage Pools are. I can't believe they are supposed to be business level products.

And I say this as someone who spent the first part of his career running enterprise Windows environments.

All this crap that Microsoft is doing with their subscription approach now means that I have a load of Linux instances running at home.

Edit: it's definitely more stable and convenient for the typical end user experience though.  You don't have to reboot it multiple times a week.

Imo, XP was the best version. There are a few things windows 10 does well here and there but the UI is worse. They keep getting rig of useful features so that I have to hack my own computer to make it be able to do what it could in 1995.

you have to reboot your linux? i have not done so since i changed the ram in the machine, windows ends up self rebooting but not my linux machines. although i use Debian for most machines, but even the opensuse one is running without proper reboot for a while. i had to move it so it was shut down but it was the 1st time since building it so 4 months.
and like you i have to work with windows and the bugs in it and office that are known since the dawn of time are numerous. i do not understand why companies are willing to pay that much money for a software that does not actually really work.

i liked 2000 better, found that everything was easier to get to, but then i was 5 so maybe not that great :) and i crashed it quite a lot.

I am inclined to agree. After a few service fixes 98 was great, and I was also very happy in 7 for many years.
"I never understood wind. I know windmills very much, I have studied it better than anybody. I know it is very expensive. They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous if you are into this tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint, fumes are spewing into the air, right spewing, whether it is China or Germany, is going into the air.
A windmill will kill many bald eagles. After a certain number, they make you turn the windmill off, that is true. By the way, they make you turn it off. And yet, if you killed one, they put you in jail. That is OK. But why is it OK for windmills to destroy the bird population?"

You had to reboot older versions of windows on a fairly regular basis.

You have this backwards (I don't hate win8, it's just dead and Win7 is on the way), at any rate, there's a whole huge thread with my thoughts on Win10, this one is too easy.

well i know it is bad but you can reload the kernel without rebooting, when running a server board it is much faster :) (to be clear i am talking about my personal rig, i would not do that on a real server)
