Windows is long dead? What percent of the articles on this site don't refer to Windows software, 25%?

I'm not saying that it's got a great future or anything, but I think the obituary is rather premature.

Windows is dead and has been for a very long time. Win2k, outside of security problems, was the last version of windows that added anything necessary. Since then it's only been driver support, spyware and unnecessary services, and for some reason those add up to requiring exponentially more RAM and 4GB+ of HDD space to accommodate something that could, and should, exist in a few MB of RAM and used to have <1GB of a footprint. Microsoft has survived on a strategic monopoly since the late 90s. I wish they'd died a lot sooner.

If linux or apple had 100% backward compatibility with the legacy of Windows software, they would easily have claimed the majority of market share by now. I hate Microsoft so much. Despite the wonder of the modern age of computing, I fault them for thousands of hours of lost productivity.

Just more proof Windows 8 is intended for touch screen, they couldn't even be bothered to QA the mouse support!

7 is good for another 10 years.

Not sure but I think this also fixes the issues with Steelseries mouse & keyboard drivers.
