No that was WIndows Vista. Windows 10 can easily do everything.
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.
I tried to search "WIndows" ...
What does the WI represent? I have seen strong supporters of 7 use that term.
Why capitalize the I ?
It's ok if we don't want to be a part of an ecosystem isn't it?
. . .works quite well on my iMac 27. . .
. . .again you have stated an answer to a post better then any I have yet read, or will probably read. . .
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.
