I’m almost with you. I’d actually say release it as open source, but not free. I have no problem with that, Windows 7 was awesome. Microsoft finally did something nearly perfect.... I support Microsoft. Stick to the same rules as medical mafia. Release it as free OS (but not open source) after 20 years.
Except for one thing. Windows 7 contains a lot of the base code used in Windows 10. Don't assume Windows 10 was a complete 100% rewrite.And why not? If it has a large enough following and Microsoft is no longer going to profit from it, there is no reason not. Call it corporate governess or whatever you like and let groups like these continue to maintain it doesn't sound all that far fetched.
I agree, but will never happen as too many have their own "ideal" desktop and never the twain shall meet. Ubuntu could have done it, but went off on a tangent and lost a lot of people to Linux Mint and other variations. I could see developing one base package - one that could make it very easy for Window users to migrate - especially those users who barely know how to log on. Also make it easy for those who have their own DE preferences to drop the base desktop and install their own. Its not rocket science, but can be used for such.The open source community needs to dump the elitism and innumerable egos fighting for attention and finally get behind ONE *nix for all, preferably with a solid Win32/Win64 compatibility layer. Nothing else will make an open OS relevant on the desktop and everyone knows it.
If Windows 10 works for you, great. But saying it's perfect, I'd say you drank the MS kool-aid a bit TOO much and never had to use Windows 10 for doing actual work...I agree that windows 8 and 8.1 were trash.
But Windows 10 is perfect.
React has everything it needs going for it. Except it’s dependency on wine. Wine has one major problem, programs work, or don’t. A vast majority of apps in the database are either medal level or “trash”.How about react OS? If it was funded it might by pass Microsoft
