I am getting tired of troubleshooting issues caused by Windows 10 updates, and I hate seeing my favorite legacy apps become unusable. So I am considering leaving Windows 10 and going back to good old Windows 7.

What do you say: good idea or not?

Do not hastily for updates, and take them before they are officially released. What is so rush anyway? To get them before? Sooner or later if you use M$ you must come back again 10.

E: And of course you could avoid 10 updates,new one if they don't work with your apps.

Windows 10 for me by a long shot (or Server 2012R2 or 2016).

I think product developers have plenty of time updating broken builds on newer version of Windows. This is why MS provides different update branches. So if one software doesn't work on newer Windows versions, i would blame the developers (not MS).

If you really can't live without the old software you have then go ahead and move to windows 7 but remember securing older systems is near impossible and anw eventually you will have to move. I honestly don't see the point of anyone sticking with an old windows version in a home environment.

PS if you remove a few security software you use or play with i am sure you will have less issues. I have a feeling they might attribute to your issues.

Love Windows 10 for its stability and performance and security. I would recommend any one who have a decent PC to install Windows 10 and enjoy.:)

If you are facing issues try resetting the device or perform a clean install. If u are facing app compatibility try the upgraded apps or search for updates.

The only issue I encoutered was with the Graphics and some system drivers, I overrided the Windows default drivers with the official device drivers which helped me fix all the issues. Until now no issues here.

I would never go back to older windows versions unless my hardware requires to.
