What would you want to see in the next version of Windows

Postby MS-GIL » June 5th, 2016, 5:39 am

I am rather curious what people would like to see in the next version of Windows. I would like to see a new startup and shutdown sound and also better backwards compatibility :) Once again, what would you like to see in the next operating system? :)

Very good optimization for older hardware, the ability to choose what UI you want to use (Windows 2000 UI, Windows XP UI, Windows Vista UI, etc.), the ability to mod the system, better control over the settings, no-more hidden spyware software, free and paid editions, removal of the Edge browser wich runs in Metro(Modern UI), ' and " symbols fix when input language gets broken due to Windows issues, true Ubuntu sub-system with X.Org server and all libs working perfectly, lower background HDD transfers (for better Windows To Go Experience on USB 2.0 and slower connections).

I think that's it, long list anyway.
Oh and also, TRUE minimal system requirements for a good user experience.
//Edit: Remove start, taskbar, notification center, notifications, right-clicks from running from Modern UI and get them back to classics (Metro UI sometime when upgraded from Windows 7, it corrupts and stops working and also opening => require a reset of Metro Apps from PowerShell and explorer.exe forced restart from CMD)

I agree with most of that including the ability to mod the themes and use past themes. I have been trying to edit 10 that way and it is putting up a good fight so I think I'm gonna keep it the way it is :/

Something I would want but would never happen is an option for different styles. So you could choose from having it look like Vista, 7, 8 etc. And also sounds back. I miss them lol.

At the very least I'd like them to make the taskbar able to be skinned in Windows 10 again.
Long live Windows Vista!

I'd really like to see the return of a sidebar myself.
The Longhorn concept videos showed amazing things you could do with it, but obviously that never came to pass.
But now, with hardware and such being miles better than what it was in 2004-2005, I think they could make it work.
I mean let's be honest the sidebar in Vista wasn't that great, and in Windows 7 it was just the "gadgets" anyway. Lame!

The sidebar is a great idea, maybe if they made a way for anyone to make gadgets for their own use on a sidebar?

Well LongBar exists. and has a handful of nifty user-made gadgets available. Also I've been working on updating it to work on Windows 8.1 ._.

Can you use it without changing the Start Menu itself? I'd be a lot happier with 10 if I could change the taskbar.
Long live Windows Vista!
