Win 10 64 bit on my laptop and gaming machine. Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit on my two old desktops.

I hate Win 10. The latest forced update means you can longer change text size in menus, title bars and icons. My laptop has a 15.6 inch screen but the native resolution is 1920x1080. Now the text is too small for my eyes.

With Win 10 I feel as if the computer belongs more to Microsoft than it does to me. I'm seriously considering buying a copy of Win 7 and installing it on my laptop.

yes the latest and so far the best version, can't wait i must admit to see what they're doing next

i loved xp.

i thought win 7 was great and a worthy upgrade and stable gaming platform...

but 8.1 was better,

but all hail the new king, windows 10 is for me, the best of the lot so far, and i'm older enough to have used them all now, as DOS rocked in it's day also, but times move on, hardware and software wise

Win 7 64-bit.

There are several reasons why I resisted Microsoft's attempts to force Win 10 onto my system, but the principal one is that for me, the operating system should be the most stable software package on my PC and I don't want one that changes twice a year, especially without my say so. I am happy with what I have.

Had Win7 64bit for sometime, then over a year ago when Win10 came out I switch to 10-64. I gotta say it is pretty good and imo much better than 7.

Win 10 64 bit Pro

Picked pro so that I have more control, and I picked win 10 because I built a new machine about 1.5 years ago, and I always install the latest windows version.

I have mixed feelings about win 10. Sometimes it's good, other times, not so good.

Win 7 on 5 year old desktop (backup computer mostly for the kids) and Win 10 on my new laptop. I'm satisfied.

I have Window 10 64 bit. Hey, I'm not an Apple user but no apple aficionados. Used to get one or two using that system. What did everyone here abandon it?

Same here, Windows 10 64 bit. This is for X-Plane 10 and to load plenty of sceneries in it. Looks like X-Plane 11 is heaviest

I've got about five computers in total between work and home; four of the five on Win10 64, one desktop on Win7. Win10 is much better IMHO, I think you'd have to be kind of nutty to go out of your way to get a Win7 machine.

Windows 10, since pre-launch. I have never had any problem, not with gaming, not with anything. Multiple machines.

I have 4 laptops (my wife says I cannot bear to part with any lol) and a desktop - all running Windows 10 Home edition. I have had it since Win 10 came out and have not had many issues running Matrix (or other) games that are not too old. I would recommend Win10 since Windows 7 is end of life for support and updates.

For my development work and general computing, I use Windows 10, Windows 7, SUSE Linux, and Ubuntu Linux on a daily basis. (On Windows, I am a heavy Cygwin user.) For actual game play, it's typically Windows 7 or Ubuntu Linux (running the games on Linux Wine).
