I have win 7 since the past decades and i never upgraded it, and no one hacked my windows till now even though I've disabled my Firewall since the past decades. people don't understand how hacks works, if you don't install a Trojan program no one can hack you, and no one bother to hack a simple guy like you, if someone want to hack you believe me no firewall or win 10 will protect you.
Btw i have win 10 on my 2nd hdd just for few dx 12 games.
So in short words there is no reason for me to leave win 7.
I will stay with windows 7, its reliable, easy to use, 1000 better looking, Consistent, non intrusive, proper icons, not cheap and nasty looking like W10. W7 is just better in every way. After that Linux will be my main OS.
Haha, updates and bug fixes... who cares. Been running build 2600(without updating at all)since I found a good copy online 9 or 10 years ago. My new laptop came with 10 pre installed, 7 still runs better.
I think it's very dumb to simply hate Windows 10 with a passion, it's a great OS considering all the other options, it has tonnes of actual improvements in performance and everything and its only real problem that may be good reason to ditch it is the infuriating update behaviour and maybe a couple background services that run by default. Their mixed design language across the OS also makes them seem a little bit incompetent/split.
Aside from that, computer scientists seem to be trash at going all the way in making a perfect user experience; everything feels half-assed and someone ditches it to pursue their own half-assed vision and there's so much compromise in each option :/ I thought we all pursued high quality standards that make quality products more easily achievable by all, but development seems pretty chaotic still and further evolving still. Is there any possibility for a new OS/UX to enter the fray? Mobile seems like the only available space, but its limitations are apparent.
I'm using PC with Win 7 for works related to Industrial Automation and upgrading to Win10 is Risking HUGE because some Automation's Manufacturers haven't released their Software Suit to the Latest Win 10 especially some particular brands where my clients have their Automation's Systems Installed.
And If Indeed I have to like it or not Upgrading it then the last resort will be to abuse the Virtual PC Emulators software with by that will cost me loss on the overall perform of my PC.
Linux and Mac isn't really an options since most Automation's Software Suit is bind for Windows only.
oh the hard pill to swallow.
Windows 7 is no longer supported, Who care.. windows update is just fix problems already discover by people and put a new problems(maybe back door) until next time discover again... I haven't update windows 7 for long time but still in good performance. Just keep watching any new files come into Windows folder and system32. and use task manager keep monitored system resource usage..
Folks it's a battle against Microsoft. Linus also banks a few bucks from the tech Industry so I dont take his scare tactics to seriously.
If you cave then Microsoft will own you and everything about you.
All of us know a side from PC gaming for regular use windows 7 will not just stop letting get online. Firefox will always have a browser.
Lmao. I ran windows 7 with updates turned off since I first installed in 2008. NEVER had a problem and still dont!
Until Microsoft quits being dicks I'm done with them.
Look pc use is going down. PC gaming is down and the younger generation of users are going with cell phones and Chromebooks for standard computer needs like social media and porn.
Microsoft is not paying attention to where the market is going.
I run a notebook with 7 in my lab because it retains all of the standard windows features (and lab equipment interfaces) that we in the scientific fields have used for a few decades now. I *hate* Windows 10 and honestly, the last time I actually loved a version of Windows, I was using XP. I did not know about this. Microsoft is *throwing Windows away* !
If you want to browse the web on windows 7 then just browse it through a windows 10 device? Have everything pass through the win 10 device before coming to your win 7 device, with all downloads stored there too and only when you're ready to install, will it ever appear on your device. Which would be after the win 10 device has automatically scanned the files downloaded onto it before you open up anything you downloaded.
This can be configured via software to appear as just another storage device to you, instead of requiring a remote connection. Like a NAS on a operating system.
I'm sticking with Win 7, even without updates. Security on the Internet is about a modern browser, virus protection programs, and most important - common sense in your activities. OS security patches have little to do with virus protection or malware. That's just fake news to get people on board their latest marketing bloatware drive.
I don' thave any issues with the interface Win 10 uses what I do take issue with is is Privacy and being able to carry out updates when I want not when Windows 10 tells me to do it. That's the main reason why I've stuck with Win 7 as long as I have.
/Raise! Win 7 64bit here
How fkn stupid, windows 8.1 still gets updates when more users are using Win 7? Win 7 is 37-39% of Windows users while Win 10 is 40?
What do we have to do, go to MAC OS? *Puts hard hat on.. INCOMMING!!
For those who use Windows 7 without updates I Just want to say that if you didn't install the latest windows 7 security updates anyone can block all your files and ask you money to get them back...Even if you didn't download anything or going to strange sites etc.
If Windows 7 dies, then I die, tbh. But yeah, I can live without security updates for awhile. No big deal, tbh. Until I can't actively browse the web due to outdated software or something, I think Windows 7 is plenty fine.
After my last PC required some hardware upgrades, I just decided to move over to Mac OS, it's came a long way really, and is just like how I remember it in a good number of areas, just with some much needed improvements, I feel more comfortable with Apple as that's all they do with their OS, they never change things up like Windows does, I have tried using Windows 10, and idk, the touch friendly interface just makes it even more confusing to use, it took a lot longer to find the things I needed than I ever did on 7, I will just never move onto using Windows 10 as my main, Windows lost me at Vista, and now they have lost me again at 10, and probably the last time I will use their systems.
You idiots DO realize you can just disable Cortana and internet searches from the search bar, right?
And hell! Even with those BOTH still on you can just select "Folders" or "Apps" from the drop down menu!
I mean, you're a TECH company, you SHOULD know this.
im using windows 10 upgraded from windows 7 for free and it work perfectly fine even better then windows 7 like reading the iso and rar files i dont understand why ppl hate windows 10 ... if you mean the company spying im sure they do long time ago even before windows 98 but this at least they told you they do now so its good .... sorry for my english
As someone who has used windows 10 and gone back to windows 7
I will NEVER use Windows 10 ever again on any computer that I personally own (I still have to use that cancer at work but that's another story)
I like the update settings of Windows 7, especially the one that says "check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them"
It tells me when updates are available and most importantly, it let's ME choose which updates I want and it let's ME choose when to install them
Also I don't have to constantly remove candy crush after every update
Windows 8.1 is really stable and fast (if you using SSD :D) OS. I used it for 2 or 3 years, and I never had any issues. No problems with updates and other stuff, what is happening quite often on Win 10 .
Still going to use Win 7. Still going to browse the Internet after 2020, even if it has to be through a sandbox, not looking to upgrade my rig anytime soon anyways. MS needs to fuck off.
Then, I will probably go Linux as long as it can run all my programs.
I disagree - you can happily continue to "browse the internet" after support ends. Firstly it's not like you are at risk from day zero. There is no horde of viruses waiting to be unleashed on Windows 7 users on the 15th of January. And updates for many of the technologies included in Windows 7 will still work, like .net framework. Secondly if you are careful about where you go poking around on the internet (pun intended) you are already mitigating risk. And then let's not forget a good protection layer of anti-malware and anti-virus products that WILL CONTINUE to be supported for many years, including a browser-plug-in that protects you from dodgy websites. Oh and a decent firewall that looks at your traffic...and a third-party mail-scanner that cleans up your email before it arrives. I know many people still using Windows XP safely. Do not let anyone fear-monger you into buying into the Windows 10 virus, not even Linus. If you take some care you can continue to use Windows 7 for many years very safely. And yes, finally hardware incompatibility constraints, or other factors, may force you to abandon it. But by then Linux will have matured further, and other projects like ReactOS may have gained traction. I started with MainFrames and migrated to MS-DOS and etc. I have seen this fairy-tale many times before.
another solution = [use a Linux distro that you enjoy] + [use fiber or 5G or coax/cable broadband] + [use a cloud computer/gaming service such as ShadowPC to play games on a Windows machine without having Windows on your local machine]
I loved win 7 so much,sadly im stuck with 10 as win 7 have no more support for my graphic card :(
BTW i still upgraded to w10 few months ago for free from theyr official sites you mentioned ,it still works
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
