Is there any reason to use a Windows OS any newer than 7?

No. Windows 10 is no good.
>>
>>51421413
Neither was Windows 8. I wish I could go back to Windows XP, but with the updated software support and without the terrible security.

currently, no major reasons. stick with 7 if possible. i hope those tards over at reactos get their shit together and really start working on their os. they should jump on this opportunity. we'll need an os to jump to when win7 is no longer viable and the linux community is just as retarded and rude as it was over a decade ago. mac os? fuck that os.

Honestly OP, stop looking for excuses to not switch and just admit that you're becoming an old fart who's resistant to change. I say this as someone who's sticking to Windows 7 until 2020 myself.

>Implying you actually care about any "botnets"
>Implying 10 isn't aesthetically gorgeous
>Implying Windows 7 can do anything better than newer versions can
>Implying Metro is bad

Just admit that you don't want to change because it's what you're comfortable with. There's nothing wrong with that.

Windows 10 is just better. 7 can't scale 4k properly because it's shit and it's only for plebs now.
>>
>>51421137
Not really, but in a year or two Windows 10 will be the best option. It will be bug-free because it will have been out for a long time, it will be better supported and it will have more features than Windows 7/8.1. It will still be a botnet though.

Faster boot time.

1- Windows uses Universal Windows Apps. Different design language to Metro, which is what Windows 8/8.1 uses.

2- I actually like Metro on Windows Phone. But on the desktop with it's just shit.

Is it worth it to upgrade on a laptop just made for school?

You should install a better image viewer anyway

>Different design language to Metro
Wrong. It's literally the same shit, and my win8 applications run like they did before the upgrade
>>
>>51424402
I have Arch, but Wireless card isn't supported, and school doesn't have documentation on ethernet setup.

second for installing gentoo on your school laptop anon.

Or just debian if you're not actually an autist.

Welcome to 1994 I guess? I'm not moving to Win 10 for that shitty "feature".
Who about they not take away Windows Media Center, a critically important feature to me.
>>
>>51421137
Windows 8 is better with Classic Shell + OldNewExplorer.
>>
>Not using Windows 2000
>>
>>51423049
Nope. Boot time is pretty much the same.
It's even slower slower in 10.
>>
I wanna go from 8 to 10 but I can't deal with them taking up my download/upload with their telemetry bullshit.
>>
>>51422612
>Implying you actually care about any "botnets"
But I do. Dont' start saying "But you use OTHER botnets!", that's a false dichotomoty. It's not all or nothing, I try to avoid botnets where it seems feasible and this is one such case.

>Implying 10 isn't aesthetically gorgeous
It's not. The icons are fucking hideous first of all, and secondly the actual menus and such have no god-damn cohesion, there's old style mixed with new flat style and different fonts everywhere.

>Implying Windows 7 can do anything better than newer versions can
There's nothing I care about that the newer versions can do better.

>Implying Metro is bad
But it is on a desktop, the older style seems quicker to navigate to me, though maybe that's just because of being accustomed to the usual menu-based style that more or less every other desktop OS uses.
>>
>>51421137
I'm upgrading to 10 tonight.
I just don't care anymore.
Cortana can know whatever she wants.

It's not even nothing to fear/hide I just don't care even if there is.
>>
>>51421137
Not, really.
>>
Dx 12

is there any reason for DX12 yet? Nope.
