    Games use more RAM in Windows 7 compared to 8.1 and 10.

    DirectX 12 uses more GPU than CPU so if your processor is weak and the GPU is strong then games developed on DX12 ran better on Windows 10.

    In short if your hardware is weak Win8.1 if it is strong Win10.

    But it is not the only game just search. In this same video and others I noticed this. This is not a problem for games that do not use up all of their RAM but it can be a problem in more demanding games.

    I refuse to go any further with Win OS 8+ and above... so I couldn't give a vote.

    However, I just stick around with the Windows Server OS 2012 R2 and it's doing well for me. I find I have more control and options than Win 7 at times.
    I don't have any experience of Win 8 or more so I don't know what would be the difference.

    I'm very partial to Win7 and have gotten years of good times from it, but I finally encountered my first unplayable game with Skyrim Together - got a LdrGetDllFullName missing error, which comes from ntdll.dll. Of course, it had to be a driver that's going to be darned near impossible to patch since it's one of the core ones needed for windows to run. If I were a better programmer AND had access to the source code I'd certainly try my hand at a workaround, but my specialty is in manipulating SQL databases (and un-Microsofting the bugs in them), not drivers.

    Windows 10 is not my favorite but it has the highest compatibility. It's DPI scaling also allows for older games to work better with newer screens/higher resolutions.
