    Unless you can double the RAM and ensure driver support, then 7 it is. It's no longer updated as of last month, but everything that worked on it still does. Chrome will support it until July 2021.

    Microsoft "recommends" 2 GB of RAM or more for Windows 10 (2015-), but they copied the requirements from 8 (2012), which copied them from 7 (2009) as a marketing tactic to encourage people to upgrade. Nowadays you can't do anything but the simplest tasks with that, and even 4 GB is too low. My first laptop had 1 GB and Windows 7 with a bunch of bloatware, my oh my...

    Fufuhi, maybe being an unpaid software tester for the eternal beta called Windows 10 is actually awesome and I'm just missing out.

    I love W7. When I opened control panel on W10, I barely managed to find what I wanted!

    It's actually not that bad and most things can be found by just searching in your start menu. It's mostly a thing of getting used to and that always sucks.
    However, what does drive me absolutely crazy is that they _STILL_ haven't ported everything to the new menu. So for some things you'll have to open the old one (which you can still fully use if you hate the new one that much) or the old one even opens automatically. It's the worst.

    PS: You can open the old one by searching start for "control panel" or even by just typing it in the address bar in explorer.

    There are two control panels in Windows 10. Let that sink in for a minute

    It's been less than two years (my last login was on March 2019), but the "back soon" notice has been there since June and none of their other staff members have heard from the sysop since. It's effectively dead now.
