    No that was WIndows Vista. Windows 10 can easily do everything.

    Because MS wishes to ditch all other versions ASAP!

    Doubt that. Recalling the release of Windows 95, I can see Bill Gates on the stage expounding on how
    Windows 95 is the future of Windows. Then 98 then XP then 7.
    10 is just the next phase. 8.x will still be good at least to 2023.
    Who knows? It depends on the health of the internet and how ISP's do business.

    For some of us old people, 7, 8 and 10 will probably be the last windows systems we will ever use.
    For young people, the future of computing will change. AI is the future.

    @ FuturDreamz

    I tried to search "WIndows" ...
    What does the WI represent? I have seen strong supporters of 7 use that term.
    Why capitalize the I ?
    Why WI?

    It's ok if we don't want to be a part of an ecosystem isn't it?

    From what I have gleaned from some forums is that windows 10 is targeted towards laptops and other portable devices ... I have a desktop with no touch-screen.

    I have a desktop too Art. And I use my desktop just as easily with my mouse and keyboard as I did in Windows 3.1; 95, 98, ME, XP, Vista, 7 and 8.1 and now, Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10130. I find no limitations one way or the other. My equipment consists of one desktop and three laptops, none of which are touch. (I do have a 'droid 11.6" tablet that has touch, which I immediately bought a mouse and keyboard for.) Touch does not interfere with my productivity in any way. Microsoft has done a good job in creating an OS that will accommodate us all, in my not so humble opinion.

    I have also seen a lot of howling and confusion from those that have "upgraded". It sounds to me like another OS that's been released (and God knows why) way to soon.

    Actually, Windows 10 won't be released until July 29; we'll probably get at least two more builds before that time. I have both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 on this desktop (and on my laptops) as a dual boot system. I can tell you that for me, Windows 10 is pretty stable, but not quite there yet. You won't hear any howling and confusion from me.

    You have to remember that Windows 10 was opened up as a Technical Preview to anyone who wanted to try it. The reasoning behind this is so that Microsoft can gauge how readily the "man on the street" can get here from there or there from here. Of course, there will be novices that are experts in one or another field but who will be totally confused by Windows 10 and the changes it brings. But . . . those millions of us who have run the gamut will be there to help them when the need arises.

    This is what MS has become infamous for ... using customers as extended Beta Testers, and this ploy seems to be accepted more every year.

    In case you didn't know it, you've stumbled into a nest of beta testers. We enjoy what we do and we totally get it. You may object to Microsoft throwing products out to us for testing, but if it weren't for us and those like us in all other areas, we wouldn't be as far technologically as we are today.

    FYI, there are beta testers for pretty much every major product, including but not limited to, Microsoft, Corel, Adobe, Nuance, and the list goes on and on. As I said, if it weren't for beta testers, these products wouldn't be where they are today.
    . . .again you have stated an answer to a post better then any I have yet read, or will probably read. . .

    Because (1) the upgrade is free, and (2) Win7 is on its last legs and I don't want to be running machines on obsolete OSs.

    Is it a "must have"? No Is it useful to have -- certainly.

    And, as others have mentioned, it's entirely a personal choice of yours whether or not to upgrade to Win10.
    They could have called it 8.2, but they're moving away from Windows 8, and focusing on the future. Windows 10 will be a fresh start for Microsoft. This will be an OS for PC's, tablets, phones, etc. The public will either love Windows 10 or hate it. Some people just don't like change, so they will never like Windows 8 or 10. They don't really care about the "must have" stuff. They just want familiarity and dependability in their OS.

    When it comes to Windows 7, I'm not sure if obsolete is the right word. You can still use an unsupported OS, as many people are still using XP. The OS is only obsolete, if it stops working completely. Believe me, people will use Windows 7, long after support has stopped. So, I wouldn't worry about Windows 7 being obsolete.

    They will drop support on most of these legacy OS's as soon as they can and with that drop comes staff reduction. So not everyone is a winner in this.
