My main development machine is still on Windows. What am I doing wrong?
Seriously, I liked Windows Me.

I considered it unstable and a step down from Win98SE. IMHO Win7 was a step down from XP except for supporting 64 bit. 64 bit XP would have been great. It eisted but I never had it.
Everyone hated Win 8 and Win10 is spyware. Did you ever read the user agreement?

I have Win10 on my laptop. It's there because every now and then you need Windows, and if you're going to have to have it, you should have a version that's in service and going to be in service through the life of the machine.

That said, so far the primary use of Win10 has been to update Win10. The other "necessary" use is to update our Garmin GPS. The laptop spends all of its useful (other than updating the Garmin once or twice a year) time booted to Gentoo. Win10 can't spy if it's not running, and the amount of time it is running will give a really weird picture of me.

There was Vista between them.

I think your definition of "spyware" is too broad.

Most people agree that Vista is best forgotten.

Well, i myself think it's too shy, because win10 was only made with spying in mind, everything in it is spying, and you need a simple duckduckgo search to see that even privacy options set to maximum, it still leak infos from you.
