    I'm trying to see which Windows to install via VM WEAR on a early 2014 Macbook Air, any help?

    Definitely 10. Windows 7 is legacy at this point. The GM was created on 22 July 2009. Why build a new workflow on a deprecated 8 year old system?

    But with VMware (why the shouted misspelling?) you can do both - just a few dozen GB of disk space lost.

    Windows 10 is very mature and stable at this point and is going to be the primary OS for years to come. There is very little incentive to run Windows 7 unless there is a specific program that directly requires its usage (e.g. XP Mode).
