I was remoted to a Windows 10 PC and needed to install some updates. I did that and agreed when it wanted to reboot. I forgot that I was in the middle of copying a large file from another workstation to the remote PC.
The PC rebooted, went through the "Installing updates" and "Configuring Windows features" phases and came back up.
The file copy soldiered on through all of that and completed successfully!

0. The user interface is far superior in W7 in my opinion. Everything about W10's UI is a large step backwards as far as I am concerned. There is not one single thing about it that is an improvement.
1. When I close the lid on my laptop W7 does not turn it on, attempt to update it, and then leave it on with the lid closed. Maybe that's not a problem with a normal laptop but mine has a GPU in it that I use for games and CUDA programming and it can get VERY hot. Doing this is %&$%&@ STUPID!!! yet they have done nothing to stop it.
2. W7 does not come with dozens of useless apps (for me) that are loaded at startup and are impossible to uninstall or to stop from running. Cortana is one example, Skype is another, and there are several more.
3. W7 has a much more coherent user interface for configuration settings. I have lost count of how many times I have made a change on one W10 computer and then I can't find that option on a different computer.
I could go on but I will stop there.
"They have a consciousness, they have a life, they have a soul! Damn you! Let the rabbits wear glasses! Save our brothers! Can I get an amen?"
speaking of useless apps it's embarrassing helping people setup w10 laptops for business use and having to explain that ms have decided the xbox gaming stuff can't be removed.
also weird of ms all these "linuxy" apps coming through, if someone want's linux are they going to be tempted by some half baked simulations on w10? (or is it ms realizing many pissed of w7 users are going to linux so some stupid attempt to get them to stay on winduds)
ms has lost their way, and once the cloud fad dies down they'll have nothing.
The same folks hating on Windows 10, hated Windows 7 a few years back.
The Beer Prayer - Our lager, which art in barrels, hallowed be thy drink. Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk, at home as it is in the tavern. Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillage as we forgive those who spill against us. And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangovers. For thine is the beer, the bitter and the lager, for ever and ever. Barmen.
I hated Vista, and don't get me started on Win8 or 10.
The only reason I switched to Linux on all my boxes is because it won't be long before they stop pushing updates for win7, and I refuse to install anything newer from MS.
