Yeah, it's fine if you use it on a side box or anything, should even be OK to connect to the internet if you have good security habits, which I've no doubt you do. Only problem is, people demanding that it's supported as a main OS and that every program is maintained forever for it, and that... is a hard proposition if you ask me
Newer games developed with the PS5/Xbox Series generation already require 10 1809 or newer in general, and most devs have rebaselined their games to Windows 8.1 as a minimum, which is good, IMO, since you can take advantage of things like DirectFlip and all that just aren't possible on the old DWM.
You would be aghast at the lack of security hygiene users in this forum have.
I loved Me, Vista, XP. imo I judge those 3 specifically by the leaps they represented. I think most people love 7 but imo 7 just want a jump.
XP, Vista and 10 were more "jumps" by comparison imo than 7 was to Vista. I liked Me and Vista a lot, The one I had the most issue with was XP x64. I think it was the foundation of x64 computing as we know it (not itanium based) and I think if it wasnt XP it would have been some other OS that needed to suck. With that said I respect it for being the door mat x64 needed to enter mass market adoption, but it was an absolute mess.
I work in the industry though, and try not to hate any OS. Like carbs to fuel injection the march of time wont stop for me and I certainly wouldnt want it too. I welcome the security enhancements and overall feature additions OSs provide to the general public.
I could say its partially my job to be able to interact and use any OS that comes my way, but the reality is I'm just a good fit for my line of work because I personally hold the belief sometimes you just need to let go.
