There is some advantage.   While true that Windows 7 is no longer supported, that is actually an advantage for dedicated task specific machines.   The connection to the "mother ship" is severed and none of those pesky updates that destroy configurations, or reboot the machine with software running that is performing a needed task.   Most of the runtime packages will run with manual install.   Granted, I would not surf the web or put any critical information on the machine, but personally, I would never do critical work with any Microsoft product.  

A Windows 7 box running WSJT-X, FLDigi, perhaps the latest version of Log4OM (task specific to ham radio) will do great.  At this point, because MS is no longer supporting it.   They are not even worried about activating the copy, so it's basically the way every operating system should be.   Free.

PS - I downgraded a Windows 10 box to Windows 7 because I got tired of Windows 10 rebooting and dropping the GRLevel3 radar feed to my web site.   Since the downgrade, the machine has not been rebooted in 4 months.   Just sits there are runs GRLevel3 feeding the web site 24/7/365.

Guess this should have been expected.  Time to upgrade the hardware to Win 7 or greater.

Hi Steve,

upgrading from one obsolete and unsupported version of MS Windows to another seems unwise to me, like it or not your best option is to upgrade to Windows 10.
