Nick Tech: Anyone Still Using Windows 7? (34) RE: Tech: Anyone Still Using Windows 7? 28 Apr 21

I have used every Windows operating system since Windows 3.1 and ceased to get too excited about what they look like. They are tools and vehicles. They have a structure that is there to make it easy to find and run things.

Personally Windows 10 gives me no hassles.

I have a good back up system which I do remember to do and I clone my machine on a monthly basis including the virtual machines below.

I run Windows 10 on two machines with no hassle. One of them additionally runs three virtual machines in case I want them - one running Win XP and one running Win 7. I can install a 16 bit app on Win XP (I just tried it - but why would I want to?); I use Win 7 as a little sandbox in case I want to install anything that I have ANY concerns on to make sure it is safe. ALL of them have internet connections (which can be on or off) and all have antivirus which is up to date as of today.

Every program I want and use is a maximum of two clicks away and every file is accessible via Everything (which makes windows search just look silly) and I can find everything I have within seconds.

There is not a single program on my 64 bit Windows 10 system (including 16 bit programs that don't natively run) that I can't run if I need to.

If it all went BANG I can be back up and running with all programs and everything in about 10 minutes.
