    Win 7 and better yet Linux Antix-15
    Actually Win 10 Pro 64 bit is running fine on 2 GB of ram for me.

    The API's they use to create semi-transparent menus causes a noticeable lag. From Windows95 to Windows10 certain GDI objects in explorer.exe to this very day... still have memory leaks. It doesn't matter how much ram you have because the GUI alone will rape your graphics cards. This is the sort of thing that made Vista unusable. Switch to Windows7 or 8 to the classic theme and you'll notice right away how much speed you've gained (especially when compared to Vista or Windows10.)

    Actually Win 10 Pro 64 bit is running fine on 2 GB of ram for me.
    Enjoy having backdoored software (Edge won't let you alter security settings correctly) Apps phone home with every keystroke (supposedly to help the developers of spell-checking). Oh and there is adware in your start menu (that tiled menu nobody clicks on).

    Some of these tracking tools are coming to Windows 7 and 8 too.
    http://www.pcworld.com/article/29782...acy-storm.html
    Some more
    http://www.infoworld.com/article/297...microsoft.html

    this is the list of updates for Win 7 and 8 that I have that are related to the upgrade and the telemetry data that MS wants to collect.

    kb:3068708
    kb:3044374
    kb:3035583
    kb:3022345
    kb:3021917
    kb:2990214
    kb:2952664
    kb:3080149
    kb:3075249

    If anyone wants to uninstall all of these then the command prompt to do so is..

    wusa /uninstall /kb:3068708 /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3044374 /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3035583 /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3022345 /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3021917 /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2990214 /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2952664 /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3080149 /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3075249 /norestart

    Or you can do it manually in Windows updates.

    kb:3035583 is the specific update that puts the Windows 10 nagware icon in your systray.
    Do not forget to set updates off of Auto an block these silly things or the will just reinstall.
