why not downgrade to win7 or upgrade to win10? why use the tiles on win8?
Windows 7 is slower than 8.1 and 10 offers no significant advantages or improvements over 8.1 at this point in time. 10 is more of a sidegrade than an upgrade.why not downgrade to win7 or upgrade to win10? why use the tiles on win8?
Mainstream support for 8.1 doesn't end for another two years, and extended support lasts another 5 years until 2023. What difference does it make if you switch sooner rather than later? There is going to be a learning curve regardless. And in that space of time the operating system can mature to the point that it is worth it to switch.One of the reasons I moved from 8.1 with Classic Shell to 10 is that on 8.1 you were forced to use a Microsoft account if you wanted to use OneDrive. 10 allows you to use OneDrive with a Local account. But that's really a minor issue.
The primary reason I switched to 10 is that Windows 10 is the future. Sure you can resist for a few years but eventually hardware and software will require you to move, plus you won't miss out on great improvements they do make. Microsoft is obviously listening to people so resisting to move isn't going to do anything except limit your ability to provide useful feedback. Windows 10 is a great OS minus the UX stuff.
Think about the people refusing to leave XP. It's easier to just get use to it now, rather than later. I didn't like the Office 2007 ribbon at first and now I can't imagine going back because I got used to it.
