Windows 10 across the board now. Nothing left with Windows 8 or 7.

Oh, and Android 6 on my phone if that counts too! iOS10 on my iPad Mini.

Windows 10 at home, Windows 7 at work and Android 7 (Nougat) on my phone.

You should include mobile OS in the poll as well

Still waiting for Android 7 to become generally available on my phone... might just have a crack at installing it myself rather than going through Lenovos updater.

Mine was one of the first to get 7.1.1 (ZTE Axon 7), but if you had been on the official forums you would have thought it was taking 10 years to roll out.

I am on Win10 but everything else in the house is on Win7. Homegroup works fine between them, though.

You can apparently still upgrade for free.
Here's how you can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade | ZDNet

Yes, I knew about the MCT (I appreciate you trying to help, though ), but the thing is, Windows' servers are sooooooooooooooooooo slow... It takes me 1 to 1.5 hours to download the damn ISO, 20 minutes to check it, and 30 minutes to install, so I never do it.

It's not like Windows 7 is so bad anyways. If it was I would have done it already

I was trying to change to Ubuntu earlier today. As it turns out, Ubuntu has a problem with Gigabyte motherboards... Seems to be an issue with the IOMMU setting being disabled by default. When I finally sorted it out, it just kept crashing after a while, and was too tired to troubleshoot, so I ended up with Mint. Got tired of Windows. So far so good

You'll get tired of that even faster.

In the end compatibility is what matters. I'm afraid when it comes to that, it is Windows most of the time.

Faster than what? Getting tired of Windows was nothing if not a slow process. Took me 10 years.

About the compatibility, I thought about it, but there is nothing I use that can't be replaced. All I use is CAD, office and browsers, and all have Linux alternatives. And I don't play games, so I'm good there. I still don't know how good WINE is though.
