Nothing. I am Hoping someone will release a good security system for older versions of Windows by January 2020. But honestly, in an ideal world where Microsoft is not greedy, Windows 7 would have been the final version of Windows. I will save a copy if I ever need to reboot my computer or buy a new one.
I commented but Google didn't like it. If you're curious as to what they delete.. see it on Dissenter. You should consider installing it soon before _your_ comments are deleted for no damn reason. Most people think their comments are going through simply because they're visible to _you._ Install Tor Browser, so when you make a comment on a YT vid using your normal browser, you can load the same page in Tor, and see if it really went through or if Google's "thought police" turned it down. I don't use profanity, hate speech or insults.. ever. I have no idea why they deleted the last one. Go to Dissenter and look for yourself (name is Xavier Combarro)
I will, still use Windows 7 for the rest of my life. Unless I have to buy a new computer. Even tho Sec Updates is important I will just buy an antivirus to help me.
EDIT: Found, out that people don't update programs for Operating Systems that have ended their support.
Last bit at the end "Don't pay for linux" hit home for me lol, paid for it in the late 90 for some Red Hat at Best Buy after thinking it was the only real linux but quickly learned otherwise after that blunder.
I still have win 7 on my first pc build since its reliable. I hate win 10 at least on store bought pcs because of all the crap it comes with. On my third pc build forcing myself to get win 10. I just hate the all touch screen tile icon crap, lots of hidden features where you have to jump through a hoop to get to.
i have not run antivirus software nor updated my windows 7 installation since 2014 and it works great. if you are a grandmother who has file extensions visibility turned off and opens every attachment, maybe you need that stuff. the fear of viruses etc is way overblown if you are not a retard
I had a weird thing happen to my Windows 7 about a year after I got it. Suddenly windows updates wouldn't work any more. I tried everything to fix it. Never mind, I could still use the computer the way I wanted to. Then eventually things became dependent on getting service pack 1, including the optional free upgrade to Windows 10. So this week, I've built myself a new PC and bought a copy of Windows 10 for it too. I've got my old hard disc so I can access the Windows 7 system should I need to, but unfortunately it will be an unactivated version because it's in a new machine annoyingly. Still, it's refreshing to hear that come January everyone would have to do this anyway.
I'm a die-hard Windows 7 user on my main PC but I got myself an Intel NUC with Windows 10 on it and it's really not that bad. Once you follow all the best "make it like Windows 7" tips that you can find (like enabling the quick launch bar) you can get it into a "mostly like Windows 7" mode. I'd upgrade my main machine to Windows 10 if the upgrade left all my apps, shortcuts, quick launch icon positions, and everything else where they are now so that I can continue as I was without having to invest days getting things to work again.
Windows 10's best feature was its ability to disappear when I reformatted the hard drive. Four times Win10's "updates" blew out my boot sector on four different computers which caused me weeks of trouble, tons of lost data, and $. I put Win7 back in all of them and will keep it until I (with a capital "I") decide to change. As I read the lists of "updates," I've noticed that few, if any, even pertain to what I do, the programs I use, or the real security of the system anyway. One thing is certain, Win10 will NEVER enter this abode again. On all benchmarks, yes, even booting up, Win7 is faster, takes fewer mouse clicks to accomplish a task and is rock solid.
i know how to get past windows 10 forced updates. you need to go to settings and set the “update time” from your bedtime your wake up time or other. if you turn off your pc at night you can update WHEN YOU WANT *BOOM*
I have an XP machine that still runs great. No problems what so ever, even on the web. Scare tactics get people to upgrade, when in reality, all operating systems can be infected with viruses, trojans, etc. Just stay away from porn and other strange websites. Don't download anything from an untrusted websites and make sure your Avast anti-virus is updated.
I've been installing windows 10 every now and then and every time I find that the user is getting less and less control over their own machine. Each time I install windows 10 there's a new service meant to prevent the user from disabling the updates or telemetry. More and more services that cannot be disabled on account of "silly user, doesn't need to worry about this or that". The whole point of building a PC is to have full control over how the OS uses the available resources. Windows 7 allows you to do that, turn off whatever you don't want running, manage updates yourself nothing is off limits and you don't need to perform all sorts of unorthodox registry hacks and filename changes in system folders. God forbid you fiddle too much with that stuff on windows 10, it will make sure all your efforts are invalidated the next time you decide to also install....office. yeah...that also forces back updates and telemetry. You know...at a certain point you gotta ask yourself, is this your computer or microsoft's computer. I have given up on windows 10 because using a win10 machine feels more like the OS is fighting me at every turn trying to slow me down or distract me with useless menus. And the broken search feature...jesus...how many years has it been now? End of support for win7 will not mean it will become unusable, what usually kills an os is the lack of support from other software developers. Next time you wanna install the latest photoshop and it tells you your os is not supported or something, that's when you feel obsolete :). But that day has not yet arrived...till then...7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 :D
best operation system Windows 7 and needs Microsoft to stop greed stop lick money dick they update windows 7 service pack 2 not remove features add new features I fun windows 7
we watched vista service pack 2 and not yet 7 why Microsoft worst to hell I updated windows 10 worst to hell they removed features and network removed features and two control panel windows before one control panel looking funny windows 10 it's ok windows 10 start menu I love smart windows 7 I love best windows 7
I grew up with windows and was quite anxious about what I'd miss.
So, i downloaded myself a manjaro linux version and honestly, I don't miss a thing.
By now, Linux is a great alternative even for casual users.
January 15th 2020 Linux over takes Windows as the Operating System of choice!!! Personally Linus my experience of the last three years has been tinkering with Ubuntu and I love it!! So Microsoft Windows 10 was the death of Windows on ANY of my computers in the next few months and it all started when they (Microsoft) tried dumping that crap software known as Windows 8 on us, then trying to FORCE ME to install Windows 10, which I didn't want either!!! Microsoft LOST ME as a customer, and I was very loyal to them literally since Windows 3.1 came out and I was a faithful MS-DOS user since before that, just to show you how "old school" I actually am, because I started out on old DOS based Commodore computers then PCs in the 1980s well before there was anything like "the internet"!!! So Microsoft can kiss my butt goodbye, Linux has finally come of age and is far superior to anything Microsoft has to offer me!!!
My gaming PC dual boots between XP and Windows 7. I only play older single player games on it and use it for editing videos and photos. It doesn't need to be on the Internet, as I have my phone and tablet for internet use.
i decide what os i use. sorry microsoft.
your updates.. gonna stop next year? really? who cares.
im actually thinking about turning my 2 win10 computers back into windows 7 ... already have nother 1 still running 7 and is never connected...i know all you want is my data , n its safe here diconnected..lol
in your dreams microsoft
Ubuntu, or Arch Linux.... Lutris....most of my games work with Direct X to Vulcan support. Apple sucks, and is starting to spy on people too. I have a real mac pro, and still took Mojave off it. The hell with Microsoft, and Apple.
MINIMIZING their data collection IS NOT STOPPING their data collection! Forced updates are B.S., as well them installing crap like Candy Crush without your permission. Win X is simply UNACCEPTABLE! PERIOD!
Not only have we only a little less than a year but they are, I guess, blocking KEYS for windows 7...I say this cause they blocked both of my really old Win 7 Pro edition keys...also just update windows 7 yourself lol (I know that as a basic consumer you can't just update windows 7 on your own)
XP Pro was the best OS program.
Windows 7 Pro also very good...
Windows 8.1 My sister own it on lap..and it is pure crap vs XP and 7...
Windows 10..Never tested it, so need to see :) So idk..does it really update and shoot down during doing something?? :O
I on Windows 7.
Bought a Windows 10 gaming laptop a few years back, wouldn't let me play games or DVDs in the laptop's DVD drive until I bought some app from the store; couple that with other issues and I returned the laptop back for a refund.
I do Graphic Design and 3D modeling and users are having trouble getting Blender to work on Windows 10. Most of my programs work on Windows 7; Windows 10 seems like a hassle.
I'm hanging onto Windows 7 (and even Windows 8.1, correctly modified, will work) for as long as possible but Windows 10 is absolutely not an option. I'm not going to have a system that takes away update control the way Windows 10 does, so I'm eventually heading to Linux. I know I vowed I would never do Linux but Windows 10 ain't happening for me.
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.
