W7 Prediction

All of us here embrace Windows 7 as the best OS produced by M$ to-date. W8 and W10 still have too many UI changes and the strongly disliked tile.

Do you agree that Windows 7 should be iterated as Windows 11 with a couple minor changes:

Relates to Laptop and Desktop computers with no touch screen.

1. Remove Libraries

2. Add the right click on the Start Button that was created for W10.

3. Keep Aero for those who like the visual effect but definitely keep Classic Windows Theme too.

Really? I prefer 8.1 & 10, 7 is getting a bit long in the tooth.

I never understood the mindset of clinging to the past. Windows 7 is a great OS, but 8/8.1/10 build on that strong platform. UI changes aren't a negative. The only complaint about 8/8.1 is that the installer should have given a choice as to which interface it booted to...desktop or tiled. But, that was a hurdle easily surpassed.

Win 7 is a great OS but Win 8 and Win 10 aren't bad either. My take is that they are all pretty good but none is a clear winner to where I would forsake the others. That's why I currently have machines that run Win 7 and others that run Win 8. In the future I will probably have machines that run all 3 OSes (currently run Win 10 TP in VM only).

I'm with the rest of these guys, Windows 8/8.1 are greatly improved OS's from Windows 7. While Windows 7 was a great OS, upgrading should no longer be thought of as taboo, but embraced!

Windows 7 is a great operating system.
I haven't spent enough time with Windows 8 to say much one way or the other.

I'm one of the testers of Windows 10.
I hope Windows 10 ends up being a operating system that I want to use. If W-10 is something I want to buy and use I will be happy.
That doesn't mean I will throw W-7 out the window.
It is as far as I know legal to use both operating system at the same time. That is what I plan to do at this time.

When I first starting using W-7 it only took a week or so and I knew that XP wasn't for me any more. The same very well might happen to W-7 if W-10 turns out the way I'm hoping it will. Then I will be a happy W-10 and W-7 user and maybe just a W-10 user. Time and tinkering will tell.

Well; at this point; the only way i would switch to something like Windows 10; is if they make it similar to 7. I do not like the tile layout of windows 8 like many others dont.

You aren't forced to use it. I have had Windows 8/8.1 running on my ultrabook since it's release, and that was the last day I've ever looked at the tiled interface. There may or may not be valid reasons for not wanting to use Windows 8, but the tiled interface isn't one of them.

I would agree with an update of 7 - but not with your list of changes. Especiall the libraries which I think are a very useful feature. And I also want Aero as default.

And I don't understand John's long tooth. For the desktop, 7 is still the ultimate in my book. And who needs touch on a PC. I have 1 laptop with touch. I have yet to use it for the firat time.
