So uhm, "hi"...

What's the current status of Windows 7 thesedays? Are many GUI fixes still needed?

I use Windows 8.0 and 8.1 a lot at work and I don't feel there is anything I can do there - all of the 2000 and XP-styled resources seem to have gone now, which is good. All that remains is the Metro environment everyone hates, but that's fixed with Stardock's utilities or the free stuff that's available, like Classic Shell / Classic Start Menu.

Hey! I am just learning about xpize and sevenize! I just have a huge suggestion. Microsoft is planning on releasing a successor to Windows 8 called Windows 10. They are visually overhauling a ton of elements in the OS and naturally they will probably miss stuff. So maybe a "Tenize" project would be awesome. Windows 10 is in tech preview right now, you can download and install it, and send feedback directly to Windows developers. So there is that, you can sign up for free at preview.windows.com. So could we get a "Tenize" project if necessary?

Maybe you should first post the above under "news" :whistle:, and then make a poll with this:

So could we get a "Tenize" project if necessary?

in order to have W3bbo and all the members of the board directly appreciate how much this suggestion/initiative would be appreciated.

First thing check the dictionary, at the S letter:

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sarcasm

 

I was jokingly highlighting how that part is (obviously) NOT news, we all know about the Windows 10 thingy tech preview, feedback, preview.windows.com and what not and there are already on the board quite a few projects revolving around changing Windows 10 looks and/or behaviour to make it actually work, sinmce the good MS guys are doing everything BUT listening to feedback/requests.
