And then upgrade to windows 10 or whatever is the latest os then probably Windows 11 or 12 or something whatever is the latest Windows OS in the future.
Rumor has it that Windows 10 could be the last operating system ever released by Microsoft. If this is true, they may turn Windows 10 into a service... :?:

My school has like 2 Vista machines in the back of a classroom but they only get used when someone needs to print. However it's only a matter of time before those last ones get replaced with iMacs like all the other computers at this school.
Or at least have them get replaced with Windows 7 machines until 2020.
Nah man. All the Windows 7 PCs got thrown into the c-vans and left to rot away. All the student computers are iMacs and Chromebooks. All the teacher laptops are some standard dell or their personal laptop.
This is my signature.

Or maybe they'll have Windows Neon or whatever, since it's not like Microsoft would think of newer Windows versions soon.

I just guessed when they would have their new operating system in the near future.

I was done when i seed Windows 95 booting up in a Museum on some big touchscreen, it was some really early tablet thing. Windows 2000 in a hospital. And no suprise that almos evrywhere is XP. 2000 and 9x are very old OSs but if the softwares simply won't run on any newer version of Windows they are forced to use these OSs. And talking about the support thing 2000 and below are so old that can't run todays malware.

This is kind of off topic bc the computers I found were not running Vista but I found 2 computers running XP.

PS at least one of them shipped with XP idk about the other one. I think I found 1 running Vista. And these were at my school.
