Windows 10 - crap = LTSC . Its for enterprises , so things like cortana, windows store, those Candycrush apps are not present and not downloaded. Breaking updates are also optional / infrequent. Only negative is that some win 10 exclusive games don't work - AOE definitive edition. Which is bummer, as normal win 10 is horrible IMHO.

btw if you can look past the hate, try windows 8.1. Its been 100% stable for me for years.
I would have installed win 8.1 but i dont like the tablet like looks of it start menu is not good

I find it completely irrelevant. To launch apps: Press win key > app name > enter. It just doesn't matter how the results look. In addition one can use any of the hundreds of windows launcher apps like 'launchy'

Windows is unable to access/read the partition.
I assumed Recuva can still scan a hdd drive as long as it is shown in disk manager even if explorer is unable to access/read it but it seems like it is not possible unless drive has a recognizable file system.

EaseUS data recovery software has bootable version - it's worth a try. If the partition table / format is damaged then general file manager in linux may not be able to read it.

after jan 2020 we still can use win 7, right ???
You can still use as long as you want. Just that there will be no more support for home users after 14th Jan. Enterprise users can still get extended support.

Since Microsoft has moved all development effort to Windows 10, it would be expensive even for Microsoft to maintain a team to maintain legacy code at their own expense. Therefore, they are charging for support from whoever wants to still use Windows 7 for compatibility reasons. Everyone else must move to newer versions of Windows if they want support.

It's kind of an a*****e design but then what else can you do with closed-source software?

My personal choice will be either Linux Mint or Ubuntu with Cinnamon desktop. More or less like Windows in UI.

I somehow despise KDE for their choice of grey. But saw last day that they working towards a more lighter shade of grey sans gradient appearance. I prefer cleaner windows than too much strong grey.

No, I had no idea when I tried it the last time. But now I think about it, perhaps there are themes for KDE just like GTK themes. Would be nice if you can talk about them. A different thread or here.
