Win7 or Win10?

Recommended Posts

I just procured an older NUC 1.7ghz that I want to use with LB/BB. In came with windows 7. Wondering if it's worth it or not to go to windows 10? I know EOL for win7 is coming up, if not passed already. But if I can get better performance with win7 when using BB, I will keep it.

How much RAM does it have? I'm not going to lie I think BigBox is to heavy for your CPU but you can try it I just don't expect it to be very performant. I don't think the OS is even going to play into it but I'd go 10 due to EOL coming.

4gb, but can up it. crap, I hope not. Thought it would be better than an atom z8350 at least. I needed something that small, and not too expensive.

Win 10 are a resource hog! Avoid them since your specs are low.

For as long as LB supports Win7 you can use it. Later you can upgrade to Win10 if there's no other option.

If a Linux version of LB ever comes out you can ditch Win entirely...

I have Win 10 on a similar Nuc and works just fine with low specs. Never used BigBox on that Nuc, but I would agree with Dos. With that little ram BigBox might hog it all up.
