windows 10 in 2023-beyond?

Unread post by VistaEX »

is windows 10 still going to be usable in 2023/beyond? with windows 11 slowly taking over as the new major operating system and windows 10 slowly getting discontinued will it still be usable soon? ive already noticed a lot of people have already moved to newer windows versions and with other forum shutting down everyday because of this (like the conditions at msfn right now) is there even a future for legacy forums and even windows in general? thanks

Yes, even after all the updates, 11 still appears to be 10 with a different look and requirements. Everything meaningful that 11 had is already or was backported to 10. Combined with the hardware requirements and late launch, I'm betting that 10 will be supported by third parties for even longer than 7 was. However that is a bit of a incorrect statement, because 7 hasn't been meaningfully changed since around 2012 or so, and 10 has gotten feature updates pretty often.

Basically, 10 is likely to last pretty long after the EOS date. 11 has no real gain over it, and 11 can't officially be installed on a lot of hardware still out there. A lot of people will stick with 10, and Microsoft will have to get the shills running extra hard to scare people about the EOS date.

Windows 11 = Windows 10.

Except for DirectX 12 Ultimate, Tabbed Explorer *cough* QTTabBar *cough*, new design again, laptop hibernating, better dark mode, the return of the startup sound and 3 other things that M$ pushes onto you.

I've heard about DX12 Ultimate for like forever now, I'm pretty sure it's in 10.
