Windows 10, Last version of Windows for users

#1 Post by ThinkPad560X » Sun Sep 17, 2017 9:38 pm

I tried Windows 10 for a 2nd time, first was a few months after its release to just try it. I just installed a new install of Windows 10 Pro from the OEM 10 disc I have "didn't activated it" this weekend and it kept getting errors with a circle reboot. It was needing to finish with the what ever update month style Microsoft uses now. Not sure if they consider these Service Packs or not but call them month Fall update. But I went to reinstall the OS and let it install the updates as needed again and came back to the same error of Something went wrong and collecting information and then restart and again. So after the 3rd time I gave up and installed Windows 7 Ultimate on the new 1TB HDD it has.

So as for not restarting the computer I messed around with the desktop or phone interface what they call it. All I can say is I still don't care for the layout of it and the hidden places they put everything. I went to use calculator and it had to load where in my main Windows 7 / XP systems it instantly comes on when I click calculator. So is everything in Windows 10 considered apps? It seems like Windows 10 has some much stuff running that for me I don't use and don't need. I still run Windows like 2000/XP and run what I want or need. Just for a small example, Windows 10 wants to know your location and tell you the weather and temp there.

The main thing I would like if this is suppose to be the last version of Windows is to give everyone the option to pick their style layout. For me I want Windows Classic and it would put all the files in the normal locations for users of the classic Windows and have the normal start menu. I still use my Windows XP machines but moved to Windows 7 to go online since the web browsers are getting smaller and unsupported webpages are getting bigger. I will probably be a Windows 7 hold out like XP, but have a copy of Windows 10 if really need it.

From what I heard Windows 10 may not be the last version of Windows but the next will be a online only version of Windows called just Microsoft Windows. Probably from what we heard before Windows as a service. So the next version of Windows will be online only and may not even have a offline version since the os will be internet dependable. Not sure if I'm right but is office a online only service now and the OneDrive?

I suspected the last version of Windows will just be called Windows too.

7 is much more futureproof than XP thanks to 64 bit. 8 and 10 weren't improvements like 7 refined Vista and XP was over everything before it; rather they are Microsoft's attempts to reinvent the wheel and in the process they are curbing productivity everywhere.

10 tries and completely fails at being an OS friendly to technophobes. It totally fails for education purposes due to its bloatedness and slowness. Chrome OS is better than Windows 10.
