Server 2008 as well

My company still has a ton of those though -_-

But anyone with windows 7 still should disconnect from the internet and get a windows 10 device for internet use tbh

Bullshit. You'll just stop receiving updates, which I disabled back in 2017. My PC is still running strong, never got a virus (Kaspersky is GOAT), and I will NEVER use Windows 10.

I'd rather switch to Linux than use that abomination mobile-wannabe design they got going on with w10.

Why? Is somebody going to send a message to a server I'm not running, get past my router's firewall, download CC information I don't have and delete my backups that are on a separate flash drive that isn't plugged in?

If they can do all that, Microsoft's updates aren't going to save me.

If you use facebook, shop online, do internet banking then its a reasonable risk

Only problem I with Windows 10 is the difficulty locking down the update channels, even with enterprise tools like WSUS. Otherwise Windows 7 feels archaic to me now.

Or who were clever enough to realise that just like Windows XP that Windows 7 would also have extended support.

Extended support is more expensive than upgrading and no matter how much you pay you only get 3 years extended support max so you have to upgrade anyway

It's faster and more organized than any other way of accessing programs

"Better" is subjective and i disagree
"Faster" is objectively false
"More organised" is objectively false

Take note im talking about the start menu and not the desktop, which i dont use either

Windows 7 is fine until someone discovers a new exploit.

Then you should stop using it
Until then though, it is as safe as 10.

That also may not happen.

I guarentee its already happened. What hackers will do is find exploits months or years in advance and then sit on it until EoL. So i 100% guarentee there were new exploits released already

See my post above if you want to keep using 7 safely. 8 is a better alternative to 10 if you must upgrade. If you install Open-Shell (start menu replacement), it works pretty much exactly the same as 7.

10 is hot garbage unless you're using LTSB/LTSC. It's extremely bloated and definitely slower than 8.

Why have you put them both together like they are even remotely similar?

LTSB is meant for things like ATMs and factory floor machinery. Not machines that are meant to be used by actual productive people.
