One thought on “Microsoft Windows 7 OS – Still Going Strong

  1. Windows 7 is still the best ever OS for business, hands down

    Windows 8/10 may be a bit more efficient in some respects, but the additional time in troubleshooting user issues, inconsistent configuration of apps, emphasis of the UI on accessing entertainment rather than productivity and just plain difficulty in finding things on your computer outweigh any additional “technical” advantages IMO, we won’t be using Windows 10 for some time
