Installing Windows 7 on my W510 920XM. Windows 10 on it was struck with the infamous and infuriating DNS bug. :lol:

Windows 7 runs like a dream. Too bad it will be dropped in 2020.

I reloaded Windows 7 on my T520 from Windows 10. I just didn't like it after trying it out for over a year.

Windows 7 does run very smoothly.

Windows 7? Gone? Sooner than later?

There are still people running Windows 95 on their recreational old systems. You can still find physical copies of Windows 95 for sale on auction sites.

The real questions are about the capabilities of the operating system, and how they align with the demands of the modern computing world.

Of course. But without updates and anti virus it is not responsible to do e-banking and such things on a machine.

I have two vintage systems (Pentium 133 & Pentium 200) setup in my office for null modem retro gaming. Those machines are not connected to the WWW however.

That's what M$ would want you to believe...in my not so humble opinion...

I have yet to meet anyone who is able to present me with a verifiable and convincing "first person" case of getting hacked solely due to lack of WU...

Agreed. But there is a return on risk decision to be made there.

It's impossible to browse the internet with these machines.

Yep. I am waiting on four NE2000s from SI to install so I play C&C with four PCs. Two PCs is already great with null modem. And file transfers work really well with LapLink parallel.
