Microsoft has been pushing very hard (and sometimes very aggressive) for users to move to Windows 10 and 2016 was quite a controversial year in this regard, with many people saying that the company went a little too far in its attempt of boosting adoption of its latest operating system.
 
And while Microsoft itself also admitted that it was wrong to become so pushy on Windows 10 upgrades, statistics show that despite all of these, it’s still Windows 7 the desktop operating system that was number one last year.

Staggering to see XP still in third place with nearly 10%! On that basis Win 7 will be with us for a very long time!

I was also surprised by the number of users still using XP. I was one of the holdouts who decided to stay with WIN 7 on my main desktop. I have WIN 10 on my laptop and a couple of other desktops. I have to say that now that I've gotten used to WIN 10, I have grown to like it. I'm still debating whether I want to upgrade my WIN 7 desktop to WIN 10. As far as I know, there is still an option for upgrading for free. I find myself missing WIN10 when I'm using WIN 7, but not so much the other way around.

That's interestin BD. I'm still holding out on Win 7 on my one and only Windows machine and suspect that I will remain here for a while yet.

Hi Webrooters! 
 
Its interesting to know what everyone is using.
 
May i say I have 2 Desktops upgraded to 10 from Windows 7 and a laptop with 10 and another laptop with 7. I do like Windows 10 a lot and haven't looked back. But it's always nice to have one with Windows 7. ;)
 
And of course my Mac OS....

May I ask what virtual software you use Petrovic? I was thinking of using Virtualbox but haven't managed to amend the BIOS yet to allow it to work.

I had XP on it and had to upgrade the Ram and video card to install W7.
I my opinion, Windows 10 is the best operating system since Windows 2000.!! I upgraded our laptops the first day it was available.

Does anyone have a fix to roll back to Win 7?  I have Win 10 but my Windows Photos, Calculator, Calendar and a few other things will not work.  It's really annoying to have to open Excel to do calculations, or to have to wait for Adobe to open so I can view photos.  Any help appreciated.
All the best
