    Probably not that many unless the user(s) decided not to update and also visit pron/warez/dodgy sights. Or opens an email from your Mum.

    Where are all the people that SWORE that they'd never, EVER, upgrade to Win 10? What a waste of complaining and energy.

    I hated it for the first year... Win7 had been a happy time.

    but I've had no choice really. Took 2 years for sound cards not to balls up, mind you.

    They probably only passed that milestone because our company just upgraded.
    About time, too, given that when they announced the upgrade to Win7 at work, I was already using 10 at home!!

    I'm here and still running Windows 7, at least until the W/E when i install Linux on my new system, so i guess that's at least one person who SWORE that they'd never, EVER, upgrade to Win 10 and isn't going to.

    Not suprised as every new PC comes with it. As far as I'm concerened they can shove Win10 where the sun don't shine. Just built a new Ryzen rig and it's happily running Win7 thank you. Don't get the car comparison , thats dumb, everything goes up , petrol , gas , electric. Company's and our lovely governments enjoy screwing us for everything they can. As for Win 10 , no thanks. Looks horrible , ultra sneaky on privacy issues and cock up after cock up with updates. I'm still sure it'll end up as a subsciption service down the line. I've never had the time to get into Linux but if needed thats the route I'd go instead of putting that Win 10 junk on any of my PC's.

    Steam Play is your friend. Gaming on Linux is very much viable these days.

    I don't know about people who do not want to upgrade to a better platform....from windows 7 to windows 10 here, I passed on windows 8 as it seemed more like a joke to me and win 10 having more than what was looking for, though I would say that windows 10 is less user friendly than what windows 7 was, as have to be stuck, unless you look closely on an interface that does allow you to well to advanced faster by setting up hardware and more and such without having the 'idiot' proof surface and help still being of no use to most as well... as a more advanced user would like to be able to dig into things easier the winXP, 2K, 7 way or something down those... stuff is too packed away even on the professional versions, in which should be the other way around.

    One here. And still haven't.

    Bought a new laptop a while back, and it's still waiting for me to get around to nuking (*) Win10 and installing Linux. Which is waiting on me deciding which flavour to go for, for it. In the meantime, I haven't used it and the W10 on it is in exactly the condition it was when I got it.

    My only W10 usage is on machines necessary for client work, which is almost none now, and none of my machines have been, or will be, upgraded to W10. Not even MS offering it free changed that, nor would it if they did it again.


    As for it being a waste of complaining and energy, nope. It wasn't complaining, it was discussing on a forum why I wasn't doing it. And the energy was for particioating in a forum, not because I expected MS to poop their boots and change tack, or that I expected anything less than large-scale take-up. That, self-evidently was always going to happen. I don't even care that it has.

    I make my decisions to suit my needs, and "complaining" wasn't complaining, but forum discussion which, in itself, was the object of the exercise and the reason to expend time and energy.


    (*) = or, more likely, taking that drive out as-is, and sticking Linux on a completely fresh drive.
