There is a learning curb with anything new. My sister could not understand the lingo when she upgraded from windows XP to windows 7 and gave me her computer. Then listening to trouble making people asked for it back because they felt she got taken. She too, I don’t think wanted to learn. She could have had help in learning but refused.

Not even for yourself? I too was a big fan of XP and am currently a Windows 7 user, but I know that all good things must come to an end and so I will have to move on to Windows 10. They say that it is better and more stable, but there is a learning curv and the older I get, I just don’t have time for that. I wish that if something was not broken, that no one would fix it. By the way, When did this topic get hijacked?

I agree with Brian, Windows 7 is a thing of the past and you really should make the jump to Windows 10 whenever it is that you get a new computer. Besides the fact that Windows 7 will have no more support in less than a year, Windows 10 at least by now is so superior to Windows 7 in almost any way, crashes which I had on a very regular bases with Windows 7 are probably reduced by 95% in Windows 10, it’s Stabil and fast and as Brian also said, all screenreader support and development is for Windows 10. You may like things others don’t have, but really, a floppy drive, I mean why on earth would you want a floppy drive? If you have old floppies put what’s on them on a USB stick or an external drive or a DVD, but I’m really curious what the point of one is?
Also, you would be much better off with a 500 Gb or so SSD as your main system drive, then add a good quality hard drive with a larger capacity if you need lots of storage, the system performance will be double or better overall and if you want a fast system you really do need an SSD or your hard drive becomes the proverbial bottle neck in your nice new machine.
Windows 7 is what I use, so even if support ends, I'll still be happy with what I have.
The end of support for Windows 7 is also now only 8 months away, so it makes no sense, if one is going to continue into the future under the Windows ecosystem, to use Windows 7.
