Windows 7 vs. Windows 10: 5 Reasons Your Old Love Is Still Going Strong. Hey, I get it. I hate the tile interface of Windows 10 also. The first thing I do when I install a new computer is buy a copy of Start 10 for Five bucks, and go back to the Windows 7 desktop interface. But, Windows 10 is 3 years old, and there are many security improvements. There are still some who say that, forced updates, and the tiled interface, and lack of support for some legacy software, keeps many users on Windows 7. And, despite what Microsoft says, older computers can't always handle the load created by Windows 10. So, when it comes to operating systems, as long as you are using one that keeps up with security updates, use what you want. Remember, it's about the software you need to use. Compute that.
