I think that Windows 7 was a solid operating system made by Microsoft. If I remember correctly, I think that I used Windows 7 as my main operating system from 2014 or so to the end of December 2016, when I got my new Windows 10 laptop for Christmas.

Windows 7 was released on October 22, 2009, mainstream support for Windows 7 had ended on January 13, 2015, and extended support for Windows 7 will end on January 14, 2020.

Also, that Windows 7 is still the largest operating system by Microsoft that is still being used today. However, I bet all of that could change once extended support for Windows 7 ends on that date.

According to Netmarketshare, as of January 2017, Windows 7's market share is at 47.2%, followed by Windows 10 at 25.3%...

To this day, I still wish Microsoft wouldn't spam all those dumb notifications about Windows 10. I was better off with Windows 7, since it did have Windows DVD Maker (an application that I really loved). Aside from that, Windows 7 boots slower than Win 10, but I don't have to worry about my computer being on or off with Win 7.

Windows 7 is a very good OS in my opinion. It is fast, stable, good-looking, and worked well for its time. However, 8.1 is faster, more resource efficient, and has a WAY better file explorer.

The only thing that makes 7 better is that it doesn't have a start menu that separates you from the desktop.

If you need, you can use Classic Shell with minimal performance impact.
