My favorite quote from the article:
"...Satan is more likely to caught riding a snowplough before that source is made free..."Pretty much sums it up.
Never happen! Open sourcing W-7 means most of W-10 becomes open source as well!
Have they ever made XP or earlier open source?..................
Just curious...I know nothing about PCs but my trust laptop runs wonderfully on W7 and I’m wondering what it would mean for me if this proposal was accepted by Microsoft.
If windows 7 is about to be dropped.
Long since the time to allow XP to run with authenication crap. I have two perfectly good XP boxes, expect I am locked out due to hardware change and thus tripped Authenciation issues. Thank you Bill Gates.
Even windows 3.1 is not open source as far as I know.
Sadly windows 7 won’t even work with most good CPU’s made in the last few years. Microsoft stated forcing windows 10 around the time the 7th Gen Intel processors came to be. They did the same with AMD.
Opening the source would expose all kinds of stupidness that M$ has been collecting money for for years.
Another thing that surprised me is that current tax software won’t even run on windows 7 starting this year. I would not have expected that for another year.
I would still be happy with windows 98 if it wasn’t for the fact that hardly any non legacy software will still run on it.
7,777 signatures is like pissing in the ocean. Who cares? I’m not a MS fan, but why should they give it away?
German Government Paying Microsoft Nearly $900,000 for Extended Windows 7 Support
Yeah, not. Microshaft would never sell another copy of Windows.
