    They did not "officially" say that.

    @C0D4 Then why all the hype about their rolling releases? Well good for em

    versions don't matter if they build a solid product

    @EpicofGilgamesh if memory serves me right, a developer said it was the last windows version, so the hype train started.

    We all know how C level work against devs 😏

    It is the last version as far as I'm concerned.

    @C0D4 I'm pretty sure it was a marketing stunt to avoid slow migration like happened from XP to 7. This time the migration was from 7 to 10.

    Windows 11 is actually Windows 10.1

    they did, and it was bullshit back then too. Anyone who understands computers even a little bit would understand, that you just can't go from *now* to *forever* with the same operating system core... duh...

    @iiii Win7 is actually v6

    @Root yeah, I know that internal version is different

    The whole "Windows 10 will be the last numbered release" started after they skipped "Windows 9" and wanted to stem everyone from panicking about how there are just so many Windows release numbers you can pump out. Obviously they tried to clean up after the big mess that was the Windows 8 but stating something like "windows 10 will be the last release" obviously backfired. In the short term it's great - just look at everyone who made all that effort to upgrade to 10... In the long term, uh-oh - how do you make that massive income stream from everyone buying the new release every few years if you have a rolling release? Easy! You release 10, make everyone the guinea pig until you've worked out all the rolling release process kinks, then charge everyone as you release rolling releases u der the guise of completely new releases. Congratulations, Microsoft Windows has become more Apple MacOS than ever.

    ... except Apple stopped charging for MacOS releases/upgrades (then again - that cost has been included in the purchase price of a MacBook).

    Let's get this right - a corporation made a statement and you believed that'd hold true for eternity?
  • 3
    @asgs That won't happen because MS axed their QA in 2016, which is why Windows updates suck more than a US 110V vacuum cleaner attached to European 230V.

    Did you seriously believe a corporation's promise?
  • 3
    The only way to get a corporation to do something is by forcing it with a rule enforced by an entity much more powerful than itself (tough luck convincing an entity more powerful than Microsoft to care about this) or by tying it to monetary interest, which simply didn't happen. If neither pressure nor interest motivates it they will do fuck all, and what their marketing people say has no bearing on this.

    @lbfalvy @AlmondSauce I don't believe in any corporation even if I did it wouldn't be Microsoft

    @Hazarth It was bullshit then and it's bullshit now

    "You can't spur sales without fanfare, and you can't have fanfare without releases."

    Yeah but Windows 11 is so shit you can't really call it Windows. It should have it's own name and they should just keep updating Windows 10
  • 2

  • 2

    @rEaL-jAsE after 17 days, using dark theme hides a lot of the UI issues, plus I replaced the file manager with

    https://files.community because, holy fuck it's miles better.

    My only gripe now, is the last update caused a BSOD, but W10 wasn't all that stable either 🤷‍♂️

    Oh another random rant against ms from the same user out of nowhere

    @dontbeevil you working for Microsoft now?
  • 2
    @EpicofGilgamesh judging by their rants, dontbeevil's account seems to be dedicated for bashing linux/apple/google and praising ms
  • 2
    They even use a nonmsfails tag often. I guess they must consider it so big a surprise when someone other than ms fucks things up that they need to make a deal about that.

    @electrineer they should really rethink their options

    I love you guys, I did the opposite of peoole lije you on purpose, and it's worth it... When you do it is fine, when someone else do the same it's not nice anymore

    @dontbeevil I'm not sure how you think that comparing everyone else's collective fails to Microsoft's is symmetrical.
