    I bet the die hards will pay untill 2023, and hope by then Linux is a thing.

    Nope :D

    The die hards will not switch to Linux; they're called "die hards" for a reason. But, I'm sure the people who prefer Windows 7 but aren't zealots of it might switch. Linux has been making tremendous progress in the past 2 years.
    The die-hards struggle enough as-is dealing with the relatively minimal differences of Windows 10, so switching to a whole different OS with some pretty substantial differences isn't gonna happen. They will cling onto Windows 7 the same way XP die-hards did.

    Of course, I would like to clarify there's a difference between your average Windows 7 user and the die-hard users. There are a few people here who use Windows 7 for practical reasons, such as compatibility or stability.

    The only difference between the XP days is there's not really a clear future of where Windows will be by 2023. Not like I care - if they want to be left behind, not my problem.

    Hard to swallow the fact that people prefer Win7, eh :D

    Can't get enough of your teenager emotions. Please tell me more what you feel about Win7 and its users.
    Maybe add more creativity! I will give you a like. No bambooze.

    Even if you pay me 100$ per month to stay with windows 7, I wouldn't do it. Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows XP before, were a way of life. Only Windows ME, Vista and 8 were a failure.
