Windows 10 is basically Windows 7 with a facelift and some new features IMO.
Not even close from any objective measurement. I assume you don't have to administrate multiple deployments numbering in the hundreds or better of Windows 10? It's hot garbage.
Let's set aside the comically inept security holes in Win10. Do you enjoy bricking your fleet of Win10 machines with an update marked "critical" that is also cumulative without having to dig on the MS website to find out what the "cumulative" update contains? Or, do you enjoy having daisy chained updates, each marked "cumulative", when they're not really cumulative? Or, how about the numerous SMB bugs that will either slow network transfers to a crawl and/or simply show a blank background if you have home directory redirection enabled for your users? Oh! How about the one where Win10 decides to disregard domain enforced GPOs whenever the fuck it feels like it...because reasons? Hope your users don't want to print to that network printer! Or let's say you use WSUS to roll out updates across your enterprise organization and you come to find out that Win10 doesn't give one fucking rat's ass about your update schedule (You know, the thing that WSUS is explicitly setup to handle) and completely ignores the deadlines you set?
But, wait, if you call now, we'll send you MORE bugs touted as "features" absolutely free of charge! Just pay separate processing and shipping.
I mean, it's not like there's a critical problem where Win10 will also just up and stop reporting in to both WSUS and SCCM servers because...<spins wheel of reasons>...the day's name ends in "Y". By the way, all the servers that our Win10 machines talk to are Win2016 servers so there's no legacy mish-mash with Server 2008R2.
Win7, on the other hand, was easy to administer right out of the gate. It behaved as expected and although it did have its own bugs, they weren't near in the same league in Win7's whole lifespan as Win10 has had in the last two years of mass deployment.
Yesterday I was in a meeting and the most die hard Windows fanboy in our entire organization just sat back and said "Fuck this. Let's just keep our DCs around and move everything over to Linux. We can do that, right Burrito?" To which I replied "Of course we can. My sites are already setup that way." We were talking about server deployments but then we got in to client deployments and there is literally nothing that Windows 10 does for our needs that we can't move over to Linux and just get rid of the merry-go-round of suck that is Win10.
