Microsoft made Windows, and it was good. Well, every other time they released a new version. The other half of the versions all sucked.
Windows 7 in particular is Good Enough. 8 failed hard. 8.1 failed hard. 9 would have been glorious. But they skipped 9, didn’t they. Straight to 10. And it is as bad as could be expected, from a privacy standpoint. It’s ugly, and still not as user-friendly as 7 was. People are avoiding it in droves. Microsoft has stated an intention to have it on a zillion or so computers pretty quickly, so the avoiding was a problem.
They decided to install Windows 10 for you. You’re welcome. Then people complained not a little, and Microsoft stopped changing your operating system without asking. Now they’re going to start it up again. You’re welcome.
2020: the year Microsoft stops supporting 7, may just finally be the year of Linux.
