My three brain cells keep telling me they want W-10 to be the best operating system ever.
I don't know if that is going to happen but their is hope.

I can only assume that you weren't using the Start Screen in W8, otherwise it would be obvious which OS you were using.

Still I would've thought that the blinding Diamond White theme would have alerted you.

Not really, I was working and moderating here - using Firefox full screen, which looks identical on both W7 and W8.1, I was in the one application for the whole period, which is what a lot of users do in their day to day work or home use.

That makes sense.

I also disagree with removing libraries. Besides being useful, there is no need to get rid of them; if you don't want to use them, simply don't use them.

So what if Win 7 is long in the tooth? So am I. Does that mean I should be put out to pasture, even though I'm still functional (more or less )? Win 7 still meets my needs and is compatible with all my software and hardware so I don't see why it won't for four or five more years.

Unless W10 is spectacular, I can see W7 lasting as long as XP (i.e. a decade or more).

Windows 7 will carry on, in some systems for as long as people wish to use it and there is still suitable hardware available to run it on - but eventually it will be consigned to the past - like every operating system before it and in the future. It's called progress. No one is forced to upgrade an operating system on hardware that is still fit for it's purpose -

What we all have to accept is the windows 7 we have now is advanced as it will ever be - the possible hardware we will have in three or five years time will not be what we have now, what it will be I have not a clue, But I'm looking forward to finding out, it's one of the reasons I've been in this business as long as I have

I grew up in a world when a computer filled a large room, now I carry a device in my pocket that gives me access to more knowledge than was accessible on all the computers available when I was in school, and it makes phone calls too.

I like progress, I remember the past but I don't want to go back there

I remember the family first phone hanging on the wall.
A party line with 8 to 10 homes on the same line. Any body could listen in on every bodies phone conversations, plus the operator.

Now we have phones that are also computers that you can carry in your pocket.
I like progress also but their is a downside.

Now instead of 8 to 10 people listening to your phone call, the whole world might be listening to your phone conversations and the NSA is the mother of all operators.

I guess I will just have to take the good with the bad and move forward.

As you can tell I do remember the past; I just don't dwell on it.

If the navigation pane showed Documents, Pictures, Videos and Music would that not be the same as Libraries? What happened to Libraries in W10? They are redundant, that's why they no longer exist.

Libraries are merely a shortcut to the Main User Folders/Files.

Right click your desktop and put your User Folder and Computer Icons back on the desktop and you have Windows XP again.
