"From the numbers I have access to, more than 55% of the users are on
Windows 10" - what about the 45%?
Is there any reason why to drop W7 as dev. platform? I use it as my main
Telling the truth I use it at my home for general purpose, too, no plan to
upgrade to W10 in foreseeable future - mainly being a spy sw, especially at
the beginning;) -, it is supported platform at my workplace (company with
100k+ employees), etc...
Please, keep it in the mix as long as feasible...
