    Good to know though


    Personally I dualboot W10 for games and Linux Mint for mostly everything else. I'd use it more if I could get a KVM up and running for games (which I can't because I am not a Linux nerd also I suck)

    Windows 7 for my main machine. Actually came preinstalled with windows 10 but I got it dual booted with Windows 7 to keep my backwards compatibility open.

    In a couple of years time (or sooner) I will eventually get switched across to Windows 10, but seeing as though Windows 7 just works, I'm sticking with it.

    My other machines are either Windows 7 (my last machine - still usable but overheats) or Windows XP (legacy machines kept for programs that don't like Windows 7+).

    Well, my main workhorse desktop is a Windows 10 machine (I upgraded to steal my brother's copy of Cuphead he brought on Xbox One).
    But my daily operating systems do vary, with some dabbling in Linux and Chrome OS as well as using Vintage OS' such as Windows 98, Mac OS 9 and Windows XP.
