    If You Are Running Windows 7

    If you are using Windows 7, do you plan to upgrade to Windows 10 by Labor day? It will be interesting to see what the stats are by then, for the percentage of users using Windows 7, and using Windows 10. I have two computers running Vista, which I plan to upgrade to Windows 10, and 4 running Windows 7 that I do not plan to upgrade.

    I will start out with Win10 by upgrading a Win7 Desktop [rehabbed to avoid trash] and a Win8.1 Notebook, see how it goes. I have reserved Win10 on 5 other Notebooks [3 w/Win7 rehabbed from trash] and 3 Desktops but 2 of the Desktops will retain Win8.1 and Win7, haven't decided on the 3rd yet [rehabbed from trash].

    My two computers have Windows 7 installed. I have no plans to upgrade either of them at any time.

    I can't see any compelling reason to make the change - whether or not it is an upgrade only time will tell.

    I'l sit back for a few years, enjoy Windows 7 in its stable phase, let others iron out the bugs in W10, software providers adapt their utilities and MS sort out the teething troubles with a Service Pack.

    Then I might think about Windows 10 around 2020.

    With having a second Win 7 laptop, I'm diving in on one of them but may wait a day or two to see if there's a proliferation of Help or disgruntled threads.

    Isn't that about the time that we will have a new leader of the Labour Party?

    We have 5 computers in the house. 1- An older HP laptop that couldn't go from XP to Win 7 ( HP didn't put out drivers ) let alone Win 10.
    2- An old XP desktop that I got Win 7 Pro 32 bit on and it runs fine but with an AGP video card it'll never make it to Win 10.
    3- 2, 3 year old Win 7 Pro 64 bit computers that I'll wait and see how things go.
    4- A new HP ProBook laptop ( 8.1 Pro 64 bit downgraded to Win 7 Pro 64 bit ) that I bought expressly for trying the Win 10 OS.
    I got it setup the way I wanted it and cloned the drive to ( at some point ) put Win 10 Pro on it to see if I like it.
    If I don't, it'll go back to Win 7 and all the other computers will stay Win 7.

    The Tube drivers are going to want at least a few more to add to their 43 days annual leave before they agree to Night Tube.
