I had no choice, bought a new motherboard with Intel’s latest chipset only to discover that no USB drivers exist for Windows 7 for this hardware so literally no way to have a functioning installation (it’s fine if you don’t mind your mouse and keyboard not working).
If you dig around you can still get the free upgrade (Microsoft didn’t stop it being available, they just stopped telling people about it).
As I had W7 home premium I grabbed a copy of “Anytime Upgrade” for £20 and upgraded to W7 pro, then upgraded that to W10 - way cheaper than a copy of W10 pro and gives a little control over updates (only a little though).
So, I now have two machines with W10 - this laptop (which lives in France) but it rarely gets booted into W10, I mostly use Fedora and “The Windows Machine” at home - again that’s only used if I need something Windows specific. Usually Photoshop, or “real” MS office, generally I use the mail/file/web server as my day-to-day machine (which is running Fedora again).
I wouldn’t rave but it’s not awful either (if that’s not damming with faint praise, I don’t know what is).
I still generally prefer Linux.
