This is Not Talked About Enough!

Windows 7 came out on this day 13 years ago! A refreshed, cleaner, faster version of Windows Vista.

It could run on Intel Atom 1GB netbooks, without sputtering out! It was a smashing success for Microsoft back then. With schools, businesses and individuals widely adopting it!

The Windows 7 UI may be a little old looking now. The design set the standard for Windows for well over a decade. Windows 8, 10 and 11, all use the same desktop UI elements. Most especially, the super taskbar, with the movable icons/jump lists, and clock/notification area.

Windows 7 was truly almost as important as Windows 95, in this sense!
