Tonight, new versions of windows 10 and 7 (x64) will be available on the forum. I know that Vasudev, usman, and humbert are eagerly waiting for them.
A lot of updated drivers will be integrated to windows 10. As for windows 7, a new encrypted switchless activator will be embedded (I noticed that the new mcafee endpoint security was scanning inside the iso and since it found a virus inside the iso was quarantined. It won't be the case any more. It might work for other antivirus as well).
What's more, the latest  Visual C++ 2022 Redistributable, as well as the latest Net core 5 will be integrated to both windows 7 and 10.

Never thought  .net core is supported on W7 along with vc++ 2022 runtimes.

The new Net core 5 runtime - meant to replace Net framework 4.8 if I’m not mistaken - is indeed compatible with window 7 as you can see here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/install/windows?tabs=net50

Humbert made a fuss about windows 7 because he considers that windows 7 is obsolete. And he’s right but not for the good reasons. In fact, if you are analyzing the successor, windows 10, there is practically no innovation. Novelty is a marketing strategy for firms to earn more money. However, using the novelty effect to increase sales is not working when customers become aware that there is no more innovation. Customers used to sleep in front of the Apple store near the Opera Garnier in order to buy the newest iphone. It’s not true any longer since the smartphone market has reached maturity.
I’m pretty sure some users are still using windows 7 x64 on the forum, hence this new update.

In the 90's, each new Operating system from Microsoft was awaited with interest by customers. And some new systems were revolutionary indeed, like windows 95. This new start menu and the possibility to use cd-roms were really exciting. Windows 98 didn't really bring anything new. However those 16-bit systems were not always stable and you had to spend time to fix windows freezing and rebooting issues.
Dinosaurs like me and humbert remember this period vividly but you have certainly never known that time.
Windows Xp was also revolutionary because it was much more stable, being a 32-bit system. Windows xp x64 could have been interesting but it was released too late and too few drivers were made for it.

W7 is obsolete not because it doesn't work but because it's no longer supported, and not just by M$. Are there hardware makers who continue to write drivers for W7? Planned obsolence has been central to electronics since Intel first developed the 4004 in 1971, or probably before that. I see no sense in continuing to run an unsupported OS when the current one can be had for free and, as you said, doesn't have all that many innovations. Notice that only Vasudev answered my question about who is still using W7, and even then it's due to reasons beyond his control.

I'm planning to go to W11 as soon as someone has a working copy with that secure boot garbage disabled -- and NOT because W10 doesn't work.

Today, windows 11 RTM is available on the forum.

If you’re looking at the differences between Windows 11 and Windows 10, the biggest ones will be the Start Menu and the Taskbar. But the new Start menu turned out to be pretty much unusable, that's why a classic start menu was restored in this version. Windows defender was disabled.
This new version includes directx 9, net core 5, and a few programs.
In theory, there is neither TPM nor secured boot needed.
Humbert Vasudev, and the users of the forum who need it can download it below.

Win 11 will not run on any laptops I own! I'm waiting for 21H2 to be released. There is some OS file corruptions preventing CU updates from working on my old PC.

Scarface ►  Does your copy of Windows 11 also include those strange programs I have to spend time deleting, or is it clean?
Also, can you install it over Windows 10 by mounting it and running setup?

Vasu ► With respect to your comment about your laptops not running, is it because of unsupported CPU's or do you think it's something else? Do you get an error message?

Fortunately Windows 11 still supports the full start screen.😀  The start screen is the best thing Micro$haft ever came up with. Why people don't want it is beyond my comprehension. What could be easier than hitting the windows key and finding the program you want staring you in the face?

No, there aren't too many programs. But If there still are too many programs, you will surely tell me the ones that are not needed.
Actually, besides 7zip or winrar, there are a few add-ons. For example, open-shell is present and some registry entries were integrated in order to have a classic Start menu. The original Start menu of Windows 11 is unusable as you can see below with some icons for "Calendar", "Photos" and "Microsoft store", but I couldn't find how to reach the other programs.



I mounted the disk and launched something called "setup.exe" and the installation started. I assume it would have worked. Actually, I'm not in a hurry to install this new version of windows 11. I'm still using an old version of Windows 10 that I installed early 2019, and when the computer gave up I got back the hard drive and the new computer was able to boot it.
You should be astoonished at how quickly Windows 11 became available on the forum though.
