Do you really think that Microsoft cares what users want? /thread

>> No.73861984

yeah, why don't they do something that would make them less money?

>> No.73861988

Ask yourself if there's any benefit to them. Then apply this logic to any company that makes questionable decisions of the same cloth.

If Microsoft started selling Windows 7 again, making it up to date and supporting Windows 10 device drivers, they would make loads of money

Why not make money in modern world?
Simple: Microsofts are commies, not capitalist so they dont care about money

It's harder to push sponsored apps to 7 and it can't run their UWP apps.

It's too much to ask to have a Windows that just works like a conventional OS, and isn't tailored to "tablets" and "apps" (whatever that is) and extra bullshit I don't want and will never use (Cortana, I don't even know what this shit does but I will never use it out of spite).

Do you think that Ferrari N.V. should still pay the repairs for 250GTOs that still exist?
Windows 7 is deprecated as piss and it costs ACTUAL money to do what you're saying. There is literally no benefit for MS in the end.

No, only literal autists like you have a boner for obsolete software

Windows 10 is objectively better; it looks better, it works better, it's more secure, and if you're really some tinfoil hat wearing retard then you can disable the telemetry with PowerShell and registry edits

Fucking moron

But what you're describing is Windows 10 you fucking moron

>> No.73864087

Windows 10 has litterally added nothing new other than bloat.
And even when theres a script to diable the malware built in,its just reinstalled the next update.
You're the "moron" here buddy.

>> No.73864415

Maybe it's because, if you're on Windows 10, they can try and rope you more easily into things like Office 365, OneDrive, shit like that, since it's all integrated into the system better.

That doesn't matter to Microsoft. It only matters that people are using it.

>> No.73865270

>How are they making money on Windows 10 now?
Licensing it to enterprises, mostly. Consumer market has been basically an afterthought to Microsoft for a long time. They even let people use Windows 10 for free at home because the real value isn't in home users paying them, it's making office drones demand Windows so that corps have to hand over the real money.

Yes win10 is borderline useless on an HDD

Everything is much faster with an SSD, much lower I/O latency and much higher I/O speeds are a godsend for any program ever.
This is not limited to windows, as you'll quickly find out if you try to run firefox on linux from an hdd.

They do, they just don't care

They would add all the shit from Windows 10 back to 7 if they sold "new" versions of 7. It would be literally Windows 10 with the Aero theme tacked on.

Just get Windows 10 and install Classic Shell if you want that experience.

Selling a proprietary OS and DE by holding user data and software hostage is a fundamentally antisocial practice.
But, Gnome 3, the ever-changing GTK3, and SystemD are also fundamentally antisocial revisions, imposed on users by people who like imposing in users. Meanwhile RMS said nothing when Gnome threw away the foundation money on whamen and was later purged for calling a ho and ho.

Or make it so people can easily install different desktop environments. Win10 just looks so ugly.

I've heard that some people have good luck doing the upgrade with professional or ultimate versions of older Windows versions but it's hard to parse out what is bullshit online and what is real. Worth a shot I guess.

>Microsoft wants to push Windows as a service
That for Pro version. The reason why they change the GUI was to put ads because fuck the common users.
MS doesn't like domestic users but needs them to keep their OS as cultural power. The domestic versions of Windows keep making a new generation of people will be more productive on Windows than on any Linux distro.
But /v/tards and /pol/tars are too retards to see anything beyond their shit taste.

They don't make a majority of their cash off LTSC. More people switching from 7 to 10 is more data is more money.
