I think most of us will agree that Windows peaked at Win7. What force of nature makes corporations ditch something like that, and change the whole thing, instead of keeping it and just making it better? Is this a case of dumb executives, recessions, retirements, or what.

      Then explain exactly why the changes in subsequent Windows versions have pushed quite a number of us into Linux as a daily driver instead of just forcing the newer versions of Windows to look and work like Windows 7?

      That's an even bigger and more radical change than even the newer versions of Windows. The fact is, your stupid fricking argument doesn't hold any goddamned merit.

        Devs wont stop improving UI just because you are obsessed with the one that deadshitos had.
        >That's an even bigger and more radical change than even the newer versions of Windows
        Installing a just werks distro is considerably easier than daily-driving deadshitos in 2024. Alternatively you can just update to 11 like a normal human and stop crying.
        >The fact is, your stupid fricking argument doesn't hold any goddamned merit.
        Currently linux is miles ahead deadshitos without the need to do 20 different workarounds just to boot it and fire up a web browser. Unless you use your computer as a glorified bootloader to some windows-only boomerware, there is no good reason to use windows 7 in current year.

    No, we do not. Windows 11 is way more practical with new tilling, WSL, virtual desktops, dynamic refresh rate and obviously support for new hardware/software. Meanwhile you need hacked drivers to get something as basic as usb 3.0 or nvme ssd to work. Not to mention that very little software nowadays supports windows 7. VxKex (maintained by literally one person that can resign any time) is the only thing that will allow you to use a working web browser after firefox esr and its derivatives drop support later this year, so there is a big chance that soon you wont be able to even post hourly cope threads here.

    One day Microsoft realized that they could make a lot more money selling data than selling Windows.
    So Windows 10 was born. All the people still using Windows 7 were people Microsoft could not make any more money from, so they first tried to screw it with malicious updates, then they killed it by making anything made with Visual Studio, even when it's just a part of your software, need a dll that is incompatible with Windows 7. And it was over.

        to be fair, most people don't know LTSC exists, even tech literate types. it's too easy to assume that if something like that does exist, you would already know about it.

          a lot of baby duckies that I have seen on IQfy know that LTSC exists actually , but they see it allmost the same way they see linux. They always say that it was "made for vending machines" or something like that but the truth is that they are just too lazy or too tech-illiterate to give it a try.

            at the end of the day it's still proprietary malware so its hard for me to recommend LTSC.

    they wanted windows on phones and
    - win7 aero is too bloated for a phone interface
    - they didn't want to maintain multiple different interfaces
    so like everything else (WEBSITES MAYBE?), everyone gets an interface designed for phones and PC users get to b***h about how inferior it is

    The main problem was Windows 7 was built to well. Look at the specs; GPT support = unlimited drive sizes, Core support 256 + two sockets = Still not hit yet., RAM support; 192GB = Uh most home users are still rolling with 16GB so headroom left. So MS had to figure out a way to kill it. V.S past windows releases you had actual hardware limits built in. (4GB ram limit, 4GB file size limit, 120GB drive size limit,etc). There was no reason to kill windows 7. Aside from MS being just greedy. Hell they could've done an SP2 edition with new drivers baked in for new hardware and been done with it.

    Wasn't windows 7 also one of the last OS's that had a QC department iron out the bugs? Newer os's moved to the public being the beta testers and had no QC at all. Just never ending rollouts of updates to fix shit that's broken (as its complained about).

    Windows want to be "the" OS and started catering to mobile devices / touchscreens, as seen with Windows 8.

    Windows 10 added telemetry as data is the new gold rush.

    Windows 11 is full of pajeets that want to reinvent the wheel and add a tonne of other shit to try and "save power", but ultimately fricks with performance and latency.

    money, as micro$haft realised that they no longer needed to make good products to rake in that cash. to an extent it's also the public's fault for being so indifferent to things like the spyware, account integration, bloat and ui regressions of 8+
