Because I have no need to. Nothing I do requires Windows 10 and I'm perfectly content with Windows 7. I have to use 10 at work and I don't like it one bit right now. Maybe it will grow on me but right now I still prefer 7.

I wish I was still on 7.. I'm on 8.1 and can't go to 10 because when I do all of my USB 3.0 ports go to sleep often no matter what fixes and changes I make. So, for that reason I have to stay on 8.1 like I'm on death row.

We can all agree though that 8 and 8.1 was s***.

I don't remember which one exactly but I think after Windows 7 a lot of people complained about the new Windows. I think it was Windows 8. It convinced me not to upgrade. Not sure if Windows above 7 is worth it. I haven't done any research but like I said a lot of people b****ed so I ddin't upgrade

I have Windows 10 on a Lenovo tablet PC. The OS is garbage but the hardware is pretty nice.

Unfortunately you’ll need Windows 10 if you want to use Ryzen or 8th Intel CPUs.

As someone who has a serious nostalgia boner for Windows 7 and wishes things never had to change so I didn't have to abandon it (for the sake of keeping something sacred, not because things don't improve and demand changes to routine be made), I really don't understand why Windows 10 is a garbage OS. From my perspective, Windows 7 was my favorite member of a family I generally had to deal with but didn't like that I had to, until I met that member of the family. Windows 10 was this newcomer that showed up and I really didn't like at first, then I went over for dinner to give them a chance, but they did it all wrong so I went back to my favorite member of that family. Then Windows 10 said give me another try, it's been a while, I promise I do better now. Then I went over. And yeah. It's tech. Things move forward. I've been convinced ever since.

I upgraded to 10 (somehow got my hands on the education edition) eight years after getting 7 and didn't really notice much of a difference. Updates are a bit more annoying, I have a few more super niche features I've never used. There's really not much reason to upgrade.
Geforce GTX whatever, i7 something or rather, some sticks of ram, an SSD and a Hard Drive with stuff on it.
