Windows 8 wasn't bad…. it was terrible

But the sad part was that they spent a lot of time making Windows 10X - and it never shipped. Such a waste of time and resources

Ok sorry, I edited my post, in fact Windows 8 was worser than Windows 7!! Windows 7 is one of the best versions of Windows imo. (vista is bad as well)
yeah it's sad to see 10X go away ….

[opinion]
Windows Vista was very similar to Windows 7 - but it was too early for its time and wasn't done well. With Windows 7, they fixed everything wrong with Vista and it exploded in popularity! I don't remember using Windows 7 a lot - but I remember using Windows 8

Also, I hope this isn't another big mistake like Windows 8.

I couldn't even test it out in a VM because it needed Hyper-V which was only included in Windows 10 Pro. Honestly speaking, I just wish they stopped with the “Pro” and "Home' versions for good. Its very annoying to see an awesome feature available only to Pro users

I also wish they completely removed the Control Panel. You don't need two apps for the same thing. Also, there are a lot of legacy stuff which have been in Windows for more than 20 years! Its time these things got replaced by more modern solutions. It also needs to be more developer friendly

@9gr, I think the verge article in the OP is too short

Also, it kinda seems Advanced Topics should be in the “Interests Beyond Scratch” because it is way beyond scratch and such topics look offtopic

I feel like the announced updates will be for Windows 10 rather than a new Windows 11, introducing a new design system to its existing delectable selection of styles across its app, with some cool new features

If there were to be a Windows 11 with a revolutionary new design for Windows, it would probably as successful and popular as Windows Vista or Windows 8 (ie, not very good) until Microsoft releases Windows 12, which'll be Windows 11 but better (as happened with Windows 10 and Windows 7). However, I feel like making consumers update to a completely new Windows version during a pandemic is a costly and overall bad idea

Windows 10 is already somewhat meant to be tablet friendly since it has tablet mode, albeit it's rather janky

Every other Windows version is reviewed horribly upon release(98 good, Me rushed, XP good, Vista ahead of its time, 7 good, 8 ABYSMAL, 10 good, 11/12 bad?). Since they scrapped Windows 10X I feel like Windows 11/12 is just going to be a tablet OS lazily ported over for desktops and laptops.
Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 will always be the best versions of Windows IMO.

They need to just make a entire separate OS for tablets-

Agreed. Vista and 7 had good features, but lacked all the adware and bloatware of 10.

Microsoft should've pulled an Apple and named Windows 10 Windows X.

I agree. Windows needs to be desktop/laptop oriented again. They should also make Windows for ARM available for retail.

It seems like a pain to have to support two separate operating systems when they could just unify them. Otherwise one OS might get a cool new feature first and people'll complain about why the other OS doesn't have it, etc., and apps would have to be written for both operating systems instead of just one

Sometimes I use tablet mode so I can maximise desk space for a notebook by chucking away the keyboard, but Windows 10's touchscreen experience, especially its on-screen keyboard, is somewhat janky, so hopefully they will improve tablet mode whilst avoiding hampering the desktop experience

Vista was good, but most PCs at the time were underpowered and couldn't run Vista (the “Designed for Windows XP/Windows Vista Capable” thing played a huge part). Windows 7 refined Vista, but under the hood it was pretty much the same (the version number was now 6.1 instead of 6.0)
