And when Windows 7 is no longer getting security updates? What then?
Might as well slowly start looking into other options.
I was a MS Windows fan since win386 days. I chose Ubuntu in 2005. When Ubuntu messed up their desktop UI, I switched to Linux Mint (and OS X on a Apple laptop).
Maybe staying with one desktop OS for your entire life limits you a bit?
P.S. So much easier to be on non-Microsoft OSs now than it was a decade ago. So many things are either web-based or cross-platform. I haven't used wine or virtualbox in well over a year.
