We stand for the best OS ever, one which we helped elevate to the top and don't intend to see smothered in its crib.

I personally risk the highest award in tech - the Microsoft MVP - finally pushing back against this terribly wrong turn, in defense of Win7. But to me the award is worth nothing if what attracted me to tech in the first place, Windows 7, is not given its rightful place until it has a worthy successor.

Until then this is the headquarters for Win7, where we know it best and love it passionately. And we rock!
