    I wonder what new restrictions MS will try to impose on users.
    And how much more bloatware they'll add.

    So this is going to be the last, last update now? I thought Windows 10 was going to be the last.

    Nothing new this 3 year cycle, despite of what they announced at the time.

    Win 7 (2009), Win 8 (2012), Win 10 (2015).

    I will probably skip Win 11 like i skipped Win 8 and go straight to 12.

    It would be nice if Microsoft asked the community what kind of ease of use features they wanted this time around.

    Can't wait for Windows 13. It will be quite the show due to how many will refuse to use it because of the numeration. :D

    Number '13' (1+3) adds up to '4'. Since the Number '4' sounds like the word 'death' (in Cantonese), therefore, 13 is a bad number in China.

    Windows NM - new monetization.
    If they change the model to live subscription, they have a good reason to change the 13 name as well.

    So what will the botch this time? No never-combine in the taskbar in Win11 anymore, despite some of us actually owning ultrawide screens. How will they make it less user-friendly?

    Question is will you be purchasing Windows 12 Loot Box Edition or NFT Edition?

    Too bad this list only works if you conveniently leave out a few versions. 8 sucked, 8.1 was fine (and despite the naming, it was an entirely separate release). 2000 is missing as well, which was just fine if you didn't rely on playing DOS games too much.
    Incidentally, when Windows 10 first came out, it was 7 OK, 8 bad, 8.1 OK, 10 bad .. so what happened there? :p

    Also, Windows NT (isn't it the backbone of every windows version since then?)
