From Embedded version to LTSB 


And pretending that when windows stoip doing update you are death is stupid from a smart guys like you.

Need to have more security ? get a antivirus that is not base from microsoft visual series.

How do you know that? Most of today's viruses keep a low profile so they won't get removed.



As long as anyone is oppressed, no one will be safe and free.

One has to be proactive, not reactive, to ensure the safety of one's data so backup your data! And RAID is NOT a backup!

I agree that this stuff is way over-hyped.


When it happens that someone gets a virus, then it can be a mess to deal with (though often is not a big deal), and businesses of course need to ensure they have maximum protection. But, the chances of getting a virus come down to a person's online practices, and in typical situations getting rid of a virus is not too difficult. And if a virus happens to totally mess up a PC, then, while that can be a bit deal, it's not like being in a car accident without a seat belt on. Yet, so many people treat it like it is, and trying to intimidate and shame people for not doing whatever obsessive security procedures they tell themselves they're a upstanding moral person fulfilling their civic duty for doing.


Some people put way to much importance on this stuff without thinking about the context of the particular use-case. Computer safety != physical safety, yet some people react as if running an OS without updates or disabling Windows security features is as vile as dangling a baby over a hi-rise balcony.


If you like Windows 7, and you are a non-business user, and you have any essential stuff backed up, then there's no reason to stop using Windows 7 or Vista or XP after they stop receiving updates. I've ran Windows 7 since 2015 without updating it and had no issues. On the other side of things, Windows 10 updates have bricked my Windows 10 boot 3 times since 2015. Obviously, updating is a security risk of its own, and in my case has proven to be far greater a risk than disabling updates.
