Wonder if it's because of how utterly catastrophic the anniversary update has been?

A lot of it is down to the free upgrade period being over, though I would think that a lot of users have reverted to Windows 7 or 8.1 after that update.

At over 47% Windows 10's growth shouldn't be expected to grow at the same rate and right now Windows 10 is not offering that much of an advantage when gaming.

Not many games use DX12 and there is not much trust in Microsoft's Windows 10 store only games yet.

Would be nice if I could apply a windows 7 ghem with aero glass without having to mess around. Was quite fond of the look.

When I had my w7 backup pc with my main one side by side ag 4k on an Oled, the w7 one looked amazing whereas the w10 one was kinda depressing to look at when I was feeling down..

Now if only they could fix what they broke in the last update that would be great! Portable devices no longer detected and MTP Driver Errors everywhere, Audio sources mysteriously changing with every boot up.. it's getting beyond a joke now. Ubuntu is free and has far less bugs than this garbage. I'm going back to 8.1.

Honestly haven't any problems that have stopped me from really doing anything with Windows 10 and I've been using it now since it first released.

They should be releasing another big one before the year for an update. Hopefully that fixes it. Unless it's one a year instead of 1update/4months. Can't remember tbh
