Problem is there will be more updates which eventually may contain requirements W7 does not have.
Time to upgrade to Windows 10 perhaps ?

I dont doubt it.  I have software I can create apps on Windows XP that would run on Windows 10. Its vice versa that's going to eventually be the problem. My point was As MS no longer support W7 it wont be long before coders drop it also.

^^^I went back and tried W7/W8 pro from W10 just out of curiositysome time ago as i still have all my OS, hell i still have W95,ME and XP CDs lol.......but as i susepcted even before i even installed them the performance hit going backwards was way too much, and of course a pile of my VR titles did not work in W7/W8, so it was back to W10 pro with a little program called spybot anti becon which stops all telemtery dead, and so far my setup for vr is cracking performance wise, very happy with it, does what it says on the tin. 😉
