    Windows 7/64 Professional

    supertweaker you might be on the right track.
    Kind of like a Windows 7 Super Duper SP-2 but call it Windows 9.
    That would allows the world to have a improved great operating system and Microsoft to sell a new operating system.
    Keep Windows for those that want it for the finger print screens.
    Who ever is the next Micorosoft C.E.O. is going to have some huge decisions to make. Admitting that Microsoft didn't understand the market place when Windows 8 was released will be difficult.
    How about a Windows 8/TP. (Tablet/Phone) and Windows 9.
    That should cover the market place.

    I am afraid that MS will be so caught up in their 'strategic direction' that they will fall over their own underwear and not be able to make simple, rational decisions.

    I have seen that in my own computer carrer. The strategists have no clue what a customer wants and they really do not care either. If you have such a dominent market position, you call the shots.

    Bundled (included) software is important. I like Windows Media Player, that good bundled software. Don't like IE though and would prefer to not to have. IE is only good for downloading Firefox. Include a free basic office suite. Include a mail client. And so on...

    Linux got it right in this regard. My opinion.

    Although a company may introduce a product, the consumers or enterprise may not buy it. Ultimately consumers/enterprise vote in the marketplace. MS will chase markets they think they will make profit just as any other company.

    The general public consumers went mobile. It seems they don't want to sit behind a desktop PC anymore. The desktop PC market has more or less flat lined. I think we can thank Apple with iStuff and Google with Android gadgets for that. That's the market they created and chased. It would be silly to think MS wouldn't follow suit.

    On the other hand, MS may be thinking enterprise will go this route:

    I would like to see a Wizard to check for problems, find them, & automatically fix them.

    With the large hard drives available today Microsoft could add a partition with the needed stuff to do this.
    If the partition lacked anything it needed to fix a problem, it could go online & download it.

    If the computer won't boot, an option to use the Wizard would appear on the screen.
    That would be nice.

    If Microsoft did provide something like this, the price of an operating system would probably go up.(a lot)

    This is probably not a matter of price but a matter of doability. A totally self healing OS would really be nice. For some of the standard errors like 'bootmgr missing' that is probably doable. But I doubt that a cure can be automated for all problems.

    It is possible.
    The question is, when it can be accomplished.
    Next year ?
    5 years ?
    10 years ?

    People are already working on it.
    A Google link:

    All of us 60+ will possibly see this type of computer exist in our lives. However, everything currently coming out of the factories are no longer geared toward the Baby-Boomers; it's the teenagers that are being targeted now.

    We Baby-Boomers had our three decades to be enthralled with NT (new technology) 1980 through 2010. Now it's our turn to be brushed aside by Madison Avenue and the Internet. Well, except for medications! lol

    Well, not completely brushed aside. We are the largest population group, with the highest income level. They know where the money is

White window frames around every window.
Since 10122 I've noticed that they changed the window frames from using accent colours to just using white all the time. Personally I don't like this and I am wondering if there is a way to bring accent colouring back.
