This guy says he’s concerned with aesthetics, but I suspect there’s something else:
I love, love, love Windows 7, and I have put off upgrading because what I’ve used of Windows 10 looks absolutely gawd-awful. It’s all blocky and crap. I want a working laptop that looks professional, not a bigass tablet. Even programs are changed to being called “apps” in Windows 10 and it cheapens it. I’ve seen where you can download things to resemble Windows 7, but that’s almost besides the point.
I want a professional laptop that doesn’t look like it’s for kids. Is there anything available at all?
For 90 percent of the market, read “professional” as “looks expensive.”
The solution, of course, since Microsoft isn’t going back to pre-mobile days, is BAFM/STFU. The first half of that suggests the purchase of one of Apple’s Macs.
