Most post 2017 made hardware doesn't support windows 7. Someone gave me a new motherboard made in 2018, the CPU is always at 1800MHz, doesn't go fully idle.

Standby doesn't work either.

Well, the modern standby actually leaves the CPU in a working state and on Windows 10/11 the computer would install updates in the background and do other random stuff that heavily drains the battery. The true standby is not there regardless of your operating system.

Windows 7 has been my favorite and daily OS since 2010. When web browsers (I use Firefox and Opera) or internet functions begin to stop working maybe then I will make the switch to Linux which I haven't been fond of but I hope that day doesn't come anytime soon. I've experienced browsers becoming unusable before with PowerPC Macs and had to give up using the internet on mine.
