    Isn't Windows 7 what Longhorn was supposed to be, and Vista a rushed preview?

      This at its peak was about the first party equivalent to normal XP with the entire suite of Stardock shit installed.

      >Isn't Windows 7 what Longhorn was supposed to be
      No.
      >and Vista a rushed preview?
      Only a rushed launch.
      The initial plan was to have Codename "Longhorn" come out first and Codename "Blackcomb" later with "Longhorn" being a minor upgrade over XP while "Blackcomb" would be a big upgrade.
      Features planned for "Blackcomb" started creeping into "Longhorn" and it became a mess overall, so they restarted development on a (slightly) different base and started work on Codename "Longhorn Omega 13" which in turn became Vista.
      So initial roadmap went down the toilet, Vista was a rather colossal upgrade over XP, they didn't take enough time before launch to get many working third party drivers for the new driver model, they cucked to OEM israelites wanting lower system requirements, the disaster we all know ensued.
      7 was a mere optics cuck rerelease of Vista.

        there were quite a number of significant under-the-hood changes to windows 7 from vista, and they did manage to trim quite a bit of "fat" as well. They chopped off some cruft that was essentially doing nothing inside Windows Vista already and streamlined some subsystems. Also, user interface changes and touchups combined with the new "Superbar", and so on...

        Windows 7 was the last time the newer Windows felt like a straight improvement in every respect to the OS preceding it.

        I remember running it on the same system I built brand new for Windows Vista and was shocked at how much better it ran when comparing a fresh install of both (did a clean install of Vista to run tests before doing a clean install of 7)

        I've never been so happy to upgrade Windows, but since then every "upgrade" along with feeling like you have less control over your computer, it feels like you're always giving up features. (local file Search and indexing is useless past Win7, for one)

          Going from using Windows 7 to going over to Linux instead of 10 brought this fresh feeling back at least for me.

            Yeah, once they stop supporting 10, I feel like I will finally have to make that move. It's time, I've been preparing for this since Knoppix boot CDs

          This much is definitely true. Hell you could say it is one of the only times it truly was. Vista was far too rushed. XP was bloated for 2001 and unstable until SP2. 98 brought on IE shell cancer.

          don't get me wrong, Vista was amazing,
          but as amazing as it was, it was riddled with teething issues, and I don't just mean underpowered hardware, drivers and an unprepared software ecosystem; there were genuine oversights to these new revolutionary features Vista introduced that only needed fixing.

          there was a MS dev site and vlog talking about windows 7 development back in the day, and I followed it closely, but you've got to understand that was over a decade ago and I'm fuzzy on the details at this point, but the changes were non-trivial. they basically addressed all of Vista's shortcomings, but Vista itself was actually a wonderful OS, it was kinda revolutionary for Windows as a whole as it they had an incredible focus on security, reliability and (lol) user privacy during its development.

          I never regretted upgrading to Vista from XP (I was prepared) but the upgrade from Vista to 7 was pure joy, zero regrets.

            Interesting. I think most of that was backported to Vista with the Platform Update.

            Vista to 7 may be the only objectively perfect Windows upgrade.

            It only makes sense seeing NT 6.x has served Microsoft very well for almost 18 years now.
            Doesn't matter that 10 bumped the number up to 10, it used to call itself NT 6.4 early on.

            It's a shame how far Microsoft has fallen from a company that, for its flaws. genuinely wanted to make the best looking, best performing operating system they could, to essentially being an extremely boring version of a bond supervillain's company with unbridled contempt for their customer base.
            Phones and tablets honestly ruined everything. No room for good design on a device the size of your hand operated by a 5-year old.

      Far from. Flatshit's biggest issues is not being able to tell what's a button and what's text. It was horrid on 10, 11 seems to be mildly better.

      2000s Windows was tacky, but at least it had some heart and soul. Windows 8 Metro was the only time in my life that I felt personally insulted by visual design.

    That transparent windows shit blew my mind when I first saw it. Prettiest shit in the world.
    Then like two years later it got replaced by that godawful Metro single-colored tile bullshit.
