    I still use windows 7 and right now, i am using my mom's windows 10 pc. My pc which is a dell laditude e6500 with a dell u3011 does not support windows 10 because it is an outdated processor and it still works and it is old that i still use it today. It originaly ran on windows vista but was downgraded to xp by my dad and later upgraded to windows 7. I made a windows 95 theme on that computer but my dad does not want me to mess up the settings and I made my windows 7 look like windows 95
