W10, and I can see no difference to W7 or W8. They all seem the same to me But I've been disabling all unneeded stuff since the XP days. That means no "Cortana" or any other stuff like that. The vanilla experience is probably different.

I tested my machine (same hardware) with 8.1 and 10 pro ver and notice slow bootup/ shutdown time with win10. So for this reason I will stick to 8.1 until........

Main gaming PC is Win10 64bit as i wanted to keep upto date and have Directx 12 plus it was a free upgraded from win 8.1

Windows 10 is my favorite O/S i've ever used , despite all the Telemetry Collection and so called spying, but i don't have anything to hide and do understand people's concerns about the collection of their data and how this has put people off adapting to the new O/S

The argument with this is companies feel what the user doesn't know, doesn't hurt them and will also help them get a better understanding marketing-wise of how their product is being used. That usually means collecting other patterns of usage...

I have nothing to hide either, but that does not mean I am ok with giving any information that I don't know how its used. Since there are more and more data breaches, It's wise to think about where your information will end up.

I use W7 for a number of reasons. I plan on getting W10 eventually even though I hate the changes they have made to explorer. Mainly when I upgrade my PC next. Sometime in a few years.

Ive been on windows 10 since ground zero, transited from windows 8.1. Yes ive used all but by far windows 7 was the best installment for gaming , until windows 10 started to bug check and bug hunt. Windows 10 RC3 im on atm is flying on my rig and my wife is on a similar setup on windows 7 and it just feels so wrong now. I find window's 10 more pleasing than 8.1 and 7. But i have always upgraded and stuck with the time's. But i must say windows 2000, millennium ed and vista were the worst and sucked ****. Only time i questioned my sanity from switching to windows 10 was in early beta , mention's of the steam os araised after trying it with a massive pinch of salt an silicon , i installed 10 . As that steam os was so BAD, was like eating a scabby horse between two pissy mattress's!.

While Windows 8 was a bit of a mess initially and Windows 10 similarly had bugs and issues at launch too, I am glad I upgraded because it is a great operating system IMO and the best yet from Microsoft in terms of stability and overall intuitiveness. It's not perfect, no version of Windows is, but it is an evolving platform that continues to improve with each update. And since it was free then I really don't understand why anyone who has a gaming PC and an interest in playing the latest games would continue to use Windows 7.

Step 3, Killer Instinct also comes to Steam... 2017

Step 4, GOW? 2017?

Step 5, Forza 3, 6, 7? 2017/18?

Step 6, Halo Wars 2? April 2018? (wink wink)

I am a tinfoil hat wearer, but Win 10 Enterprise LTSB has become my OS of choice.

Originally I installed it just for the odd game or 2, but I just enjoy using it so much more than 7.

im surprised you say that, arnt you the one with endless store issues? Though I have to agree win10 is great better then win 7 imo, it just a "bit" more temperamental to changes and tweaks...

And the whole telemetry crap is old and stale at this point for reason not to. Im sorry but they been doing it for years, just before it was not public knowlage and all over I will to bet if some read the actual EULA most this stuff would be stated but no one ever read it.

I said it once I will say it again, we live in digital internet social crazyed age, if it going threw satellites, which just about everything is at this point, your data can be taken by anyone or anything with the know how it as simple as that. your are monitored whether you want to beleive it or not.

It the price you pay for all this tech.

Sad post.

What is better than Windows 7?
The "telemetry crap" is a big problem that will only get worse when you are prepared to bend over and take it.
Its stale to you because you have lost your back bone.
Lucky that some of us still stand up for what is right.

What is "all this tech" that we have to sacrifice our standards for?
I'm not seeing benefits only worse problems, worse performance, loss of privacy and loss of liberty.
Oh, and loss of control.

Again they been take this telemetry for YEARS unless you delusional and think they havent cause its the "nice" thing to do.

Everything is Digitial today and EVERY thing going threw satellites, if people and or companies want they will get it want that data that "encrypted" they will get it no amount denying it happens will change that.

use your devices and be happy.

Seriously what did people think would happen when everything is online and digital? did they think privacy is still thing? your smart phones/pc camera/mic could be on and you would never know.

It not sad it called being realistic, is wrong? it can be, but you can stop it and no one can less snake plisken comes and emp the whole world and kill all tech.

Win10 all the way after RS1, initial rls was ****ty, made me regret moving from win8.1, but now its great.

And like thedeeegee said, games run smoother.

2 quick examples gta5 and cod ghosts that saw the biggest difference, this was still with my old 780gtx where I thought 3gb vram was the cause for it, but it wasnt. Also hw physx runs faster and smoother.

I am wondering whether you are consistent with your principles and use old mobile phone instead of smartphone? If you use smartphone then there is no reason for you to blame PC OSs.

People use what they like and what they need so this thread was about win7|win10 usage not about "mine is bigger than yours" so yes results are in favor of win 10.

Windows 10 because not using the latest and greatest for a power user is going full retard imo

There are a few rough edges but they can be smoothed out with third party apps and settings changes, just like they could in W8 and W7.
