I just came from Windows 10 not too long ago, and it was the worst computer experience
that I've ever had. Had it since the first week it came out, so glad that I don't
see it anymore. Hope I never see it again. It was really rough getting my laptop
downgraded to Windows 7, since my pc was being remote controlled to stop me from leaving
10. Had to shut my pc off and lock the BIOS with a password until I could install Windows
7. While I'm familiar with Windows 7, I would like to leave Windows behind completely.
Currently have a dual booted system.
Because of the way Windows 10 is, UEFI is the only thing that is accepted (no Legacy
Boot). If I try any other OS on UEFI my laptop can't find the disc image. It somehow
seems to be designed only for Windows 10. Legacy Boot is the only way that I can run a
different OS. Despite factory reseting it and doing a clean install of Windows 7, I still
can't use UEFI at all. My laptop isn't that old either, (about a year and a half)
in fact it was really hard to get my intel drivers working since Intel doesn't support
downgrading with newer hardware that's designed for Windows 10 from what I can see.
I'm new to Linux and have only recently gotten used to Fedora, but if it goes to where
only UEFI is supported I will have to unfortunately go elsewhere.
While my laptop is 64 bit, I know of a lot of computers that are 32 bit and as cool as the
newest software is not everyone switches over. Some people like to stay with the same
configuration for years. I do feel that large companies want people to make the switch to
the newer stuff, but it just isn't always practical for some. I don't know any
computer programming languages, so I don't really know if there are inconvieniences to
keep Legacy Boot. Anyway, this is just my take on it.
