    Man, the social aspect of Eight Forums has become almost nonexistent
    I come here and have this song in my head:

    progress is inevitable, but there are many out there who are happy to remain as they are. I love win 10, so I too am happy!!

    Yup, but when I look in on 7 forums, it's alive and kickin'. Then I come here it's like a ghost town in the old TV western, with sagebrush blowing through the streets.(I mean the social aspect, not the help)
    Is this what's left of Eight Forums?

    There were many pc owners who did not want to do the jump to 8, but will inevitably have to climb the mountain as win 7 support dissolves. The jump from 7 to 10 is probably the best way to go. I did it 7, 8. 8.1 - 10, and although the unknown became the known with the help of the Brinks etc in here, and now in 10. Go for it, learn and explore. The only thing I have yet to explore is Edge. ( I think).

    Out of all the forums - Vista, Seven, Eight, Ten, Seven was the most active. I never felt Eight had the activity Seven once had. Seven was just lively place. Anyway as noted progress moves on so as one OS dies away 7, 8) so does the activity around it. Being a 10 user myself now, I don't have much to say or do with 8 anymore.

    A lot of fixes are the same(I still use them on Win 10 too) so I look in once in a while to see where I can help. Most problems are BSOD though, which is out of my league, and axe0 is doing a good job there.
    For me, I don't post so much here as I used to, because I would run into the danger of double posting, and just posting a few words, then linking to 10 Forums seems pretty dumb(on the social side I mean). But I do PM the some here just to see how they're doing.

    If a windows forum is relatively quiet surely this should be looked at a different way - IT WORKS!! Initially every such forum is busy, then it begins to tail off as people become more knowledgeable. I have a 10 problem now, which I am going to ask about in the relelevant forum.

    I never looked at it that way. Yeah, Eight worked great on my machine(Ten is too though).

    Too bad those that choose to stay on 8, don't write something here and associate with each other like we do in 10 Forums.
