Used to like it...

I used to like Windows but after some time using it, I'm starting to hate it because

1)cannot completely remove Internet Explorer,Windows Media Player,Paint,etc which takes some space in my small hard drive

2)too many maintenance and apps needed to optimize Windows 7

3)a pain to find driver after clean install

In my opinion,Ubuntu is better than Windows 7 (never tried Mac yet)

I prefer windows 7 to windows 8/10 because:
1.My graphic driver (AMD 7670M) is not fully compatible with windows 8/10 (I tried 100 different drivers from AMD/Windows Update, No difference)
2.Low boot speed compared to my hardware on 8/10
3.Low performance on Virtual Machine on 8/10
4.Incompatible hardware drivers (like GPU, USB port, Wireless, Bluetooth, Ethernet port) on 8/10
5.Smoother UI and easier to use on 7. I don't like metro style too much
6.High CPU usage on 8/10 so weak battery and overheating CPU and GPU

I like Ubuntu. I have Ubuntu on my laptop and 80% of time i'm using Ubuntu. because:
1.Smoother UI and much lighter than win7
2.Less driver problems compared to all windows versions
3.Application installation is so easy on Ubuntu
I can't delete windows and use Ubuntu always because:
1.In my country, Most (maybe all) apps are not supported on Ubuntu
2.I'm C# developer. So i need to install VisualStudio or any other app on Windows
3.Much easier to find specific softwares

C# now works on linux with .net core , still you'll need to port previous apps to .net core first which you should do anyway I think

Horribly insecure, THOUGH better than Windows 10. Most of the people where I work continue to use WIndows 7, even in 2018, because Windows 10 just isn't worth it. If you want something better, more user-friendly, customizable and secure, please at least consider a Linux distribution.

IMO
The last (as of writing this) version of Windows that does not streamline itself to the point of being difficult for power-users to control the system on a low level.

Was my childhood operating system.

In terms of privacy, this is a little bit private but still has some telemetry unlike Windows 10 where it's almost a total spyware.

Overall definitely a nice and wonderful OS of its time.

He was taken from us too early. Rest in peace 7; you are missed every day.

Great OS. There is a way to get it to get paid support updates to 2023. But software will stop supporting Win7 and you should think of an exit strategy.

Good for a Virtual machine though. Just make copies of old software that works with it, incase you need to install it later on.

Mano muito ├ępico Windows 7 melhor sistema ????????????

reply

Best operating system ever

about Windows 7 · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

It's faster than Vista
It does support 64-bit (a lot better than XP did)
It feels a lot more comfortable and easy to use than Windows 8/10.
There's no need to explain why it's better than Ubuntu and other linux distros, right?

Beautiful, fast, secure (well, it was a few years ago) and it just works. I love it!
