There are several reasons why people are refusing to dump Windows 7. Dumping off Windows 7 can be annoying for large businesses that have already installed Windows 7 across their systems. For individual users, Windows 7 offers familiarity and simplicity that other versions of Windows do not have. Some users may have had a bad experience with Windows 8’s failed touch-focused experiment that introduced the tile interface which can be seen on Windows 10 as well.
