    In 2019, it was reported that Windows 7 support will end in January 14, 2020. Because of this, I made this thread telling you guys that Windows 7 will end support.

    About Windows 7: it was first made in 2009 as the successor to Windows Vista, which was first made in 2007, and the predecessor to Windows 8 and 8.1, were first made in 2012 for Windows 8, and 2013 for Windows 8.1, which then was succeeded by Windows 10 in 2015.

    What's the point of having an OS from a whole decade ago? I'm not trying to sound mean or anything, I simply just don't get it.

    Oh. That sucks. New and up-to-date gaming PCs can be super expensive. Mine was almost 1 grand.

    XP and 7 were the best Operating systems.

    Windows 10 LTSC is Cortana-less and spyware-less. No Windows Store, no MS Edge, no nothing. It's a bare bones, Internet Explorer equipped build of Windows 10 that feels much like 7. Highly recommended.

    First off, no forced updates.
    Second off, familiarity
    Third, compatibility with old systems
    Fourth, more privacy (debateable)
    Fifth, some games just don't work so good on 10

    I still use it and in many ways I prefer it to Windows 10. You have more control over the OS in general and it's possibly the best looking, in my opinion, Windows version ever with all the colours and shades, unlike Windows 10 (and 8.1) that are flat, thought for a mobile market.

    I think you have to contact a Windows Parter or Microsoft itself to gain access to the LTSC. You can do it, but you could end with nothing. As far as I know you need to provide Microsoft some proof of business in order to access the Enterprise branch of Windows 10 and from there the LTSC. If you try the evaluation period (basically the free trial) you still have to provide real business information:

    Unless you have a business, it's not that easy to legally buy Windows 10 Enterprise (LTSC).

    Many users appreciate the lack of first party bloatware in 7 compared to 10. Win 10 also may or may not be spying on you, or at least collecting your usage data. 7 also supposedly has less overhead, and is a much smaller install. 7 has just enough quality of life upgrades from xp and vista that it is still not frustrating to use.
    I think another factor is how hard Microsoft pushed win 10 upgrades from win 7. for several months, you would get a notification to upgrade to win 10 before it was 'too late' and people don't like being told what to do
