    I love 7... It does what I need it to do with ease, my only issue is the updates can be very slow which is probably caused purposely by MS to annoy users so much that they will move to 10. I will use it until MS no longer supports it. My vote goes to 7 :)

    I'm using Windows 10 on multiple laptops. I prefer it to Windows 7, and it made sense to me to upgrade while it was free to do so.
    I have one laptop I'm running Vista and Linux on.

    I have Windows 7 Prof/Ultimate x6 on 4 computers I'm in charge of. It's so far so good. No plans to migrate to Windows 10. Though I won't resist it if some day I'll buy a PC with preinstalled 10.

    Seven. I tried 10 last august, but it was buggy and I had problems with some mu programs. In a few days I'll take a look again.

    I've just upgraded to Win 10 from Win 8.1 on my main machine and I'm divided as to which is better. I have almost a month to make up my mind, and so far I feel positive about Win 10 as it is a freebie, although I don't like the fact that I can't block Windows updates, the folder design is a bit too cartoonish, and the window appearance is a bit too anemic in terms of colours. Speed is slightly faster overall, on the other hand booting is slower, a real dilemma...

    Windows 7 on 3 PCs. Solid, prefer the UI, compatibility.

    Got XP and 8.1 on 2 other PCs, but I haven't used them in a long time.

    No love for Windows 8.1, though I prefer it to Windows 7.

    Windows 10 Pro x64 here.

    7 and 10. There's no option for multiple OS's, so I couldn't vote....

    I use W10....Once the "Bloatware" is removed, and much of the telemetry stopped it is a pretty good OS IMO.

    Daily, Xp and 7, 10 on occasion mostly in a VM. I retired my last Vista machine a few month's ago but until then I was using it daily too. I can't vote either because I multiboot and use multiple OSes on multiple computers and VMs. The days of one OS on one computer are long gone for me.

    Windows 7 – and intend using it into the foreseeable future.

    However, I have taken up the free offer for the Windows 10 upgrade and have a validated image stored on an external drive for when I migrate to 10.

    Well, installed 10: less bugs than last august, but:

    - Edge don't work. I think that it don't see my router, but Opera see it !
    - Nvidia drivers for 10 64 bit and my graphic card work bad ( I tried also some old versions ): brightness and contrast - also working on their settings - are bad.

    Created disk image of 10 and came back to 7. Happy with Seven.
