    I am formatting my computer, I am struggling to decide on which windows to install.
    Windows 10 does not ask the user whether to install updates or not.Let me know your views on which to choose a version of the window.

    Not sure why anyone would prefer 7. I have to use it at work cause of compatibility issues. Otherwise I’d have 10 on it.

    I would go with 10. After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for anything running Windows 7.

    If you must stay with Micro$oft, then Windows 10.

    If Linux is an option, then I'd go with that.

    Then again, you are asking this question in a MacOS forum and I'm typing this from a Mac Mini, so if money isn't an issue, get a Mac.

    I recently updated my old Vista laptop to win7 so I can get the new iTunes update but as Annie mentioned the support is coming to an end and it might be time to consider a replacement.

    My rule of thumb is always update to the highest OS that your system can run smoothly

    Are you wanting to install Windows on a Mac, or are you looking to just install Windows on a PC?

    Either way, I'd suggest installing Windows 10, since Windows 7 is EOL in 5 months and will no longer be supported by Microsoft.

    It's hard for me to know the computer or situation here but for any reasonably new Mac or PC consider Mac OS or Windows 10 has your host OS and run others as a guest virtual machine.
