    Simple question: Which version of Windows are you running on your laptop or PC, and why? Anyone still have an old setup rocking Windows 95 or similar? lol

    Windows 10 across the board (with the exception of one tablet that Samsung refused to update from 8.1 to 10). UWP is too good to pass up and it's the OS that works better with a touchscreen than any previous version of Windows save 8/8.1. I do still have a physical Windows 95 installation package tucked away for a rainy day if that counts. It was an amazing OS for it's time.

    Oh, and I still have a couple of phones on old Windows Mobile 6.1 and 6.5 because Windows CE still counts as old Windows to me. The pocket desktop was real.

    Windows 10 Home. Not sure about the exact version, but I'm using this version because it's what it automatically updated after transitioning from Windows 8.1.

    Well... I know how much you love Mac OS James, but I completely got rid of Mac on my MacBook! lol it's an older MacBook, getting to 7-8 years old now. I at first installed Windows 7, It was really good with it running Windows, then I headed over to 8.1, It was meh, it had a fast boot time and that's all I liked about it, lol. I eventually upgraded to Windows 10 and it's running GREAT! I chose to stick with Windows 10 because it provided the right balance between stability and feel. I have very little issues with it, I got all the Apple components to work properly with Boot Camp, so I'm set! I only use 'tis ol laptop every once in a while, it's not necessarily a daily driver type laptop.

    Newest (release preview ring) build on both my L1520, and my laptop. Why? Why not, it's the best available.

    Meh, it's alright... I guess, lol. I should've gotten a MacBook Pro, there would have been no need to go with Windows on that, lol.

    Windows 10 and strictly because it's the most intuitive os they've had to date. Runs the best, easiest to get things done for me.

    I have an older HP laptop. I'm running Windows 8.1 on it. I tried it when Windows 10 was released, but it had driver problems. Wifi was very spotty. I reverted to 8.1. It would probably work fine now on Windows 10, but since it's older I don't plan to use it too much longer so I'm not going to bother installing 10 again. I'm not sure the problems went away anyway!

    I have a Macbook that has Windows 10 running via Bootcamp. Why? Just because; no other reason.

    My home laptop is on the Fast Ring. I rarely use it so I let the missus deal with the constant updating and the wonky wifi. My everyday slate is on 7 Pro and I refuse to give it up. It runs 10 very well and despite its age, every single driver is available for it. The deciding factor is Remote Desktop, it simply runs like garbage on 10 and it's near-perfect on 7. Considering my home office is 5 states away, RDP is beyond essential. Besides, I absolutely can't function without Windows Journal and 10 took it away. There's a stand-alone download available but it doesn't include the printer plug-in.

    Windows 10 Home or Pro on most machines. Windows Home Server on our server and yes I even have a Windows 95 laptop - for those that might remember it a Toshiba Libretto 100CT and yes it still works!

    Windows 8.1 on my laptop. Not interested in Windows 10. As for why, I like it.

    I could care less for store apps aside from the Microsoft Solitaire Collection.

    Using Windows 10 pro and on the insider program(Fast Ring), also using Windows 10 mobile on insider program as well and just updated to the latest version of the build. Fun and very interesting to use windows 10. I am very happy and still having hope that the platform, I defended for year in the eyes of my friends is now turning into somethin very solid. Very impatient to see them switch to windows 10. So impressive how the UWP and the sync between mobile and pc works.
