    Are We Dying????

    It seems like the Windows 8 community is dieing as a lot of people are getting ready to jump at 10 as soon as it comes out.

    Windows 8.1

    Going to be sad to see the end of 8.1

    It's still my favourite OS, even though I will be moving over to 10

    As new operating systems are introduced users will move from the old toward the new. The newer OS will be installed on older computers or be pre-installed on new computers. As popularity of older systems drops forums dedicated to them will have less activity. This will happen with any operating system, no matter how popular it might currently be. The process is as inevitable as birth and death.

    The day will come when users of Windows 7 and Windows 8 are only a tiny minority and forums dedicated to them only a memory. It could not be otherwise.

    One thing I know for certain is that I will be on 8.1 for a while yet. But as expected things always change.

    I know this 8.1 will be taken over by 10 but I'll still have a 7 machine. I don't think this particular forum has been quite as popular as the others as the OS hasn't been as well liked. Vista is very quiet as well but there are still people who need help with the older systems.

    In the world of technology things move very quickly and most people want to keep up with it.

    I will be keeping Win8.1 and Win7 running for awhile just as I am keeping a Vista computer and a WinXP computer working for helping others. My WinXP computer has a 3.5"/5.25" combination floppy drive and a 250MB Iomega Zip drive for use when folks 'find' old disks and want to see or save the data from them. An issue with the floppy drives is the BIOS on new computers or motherboards don't always support the floppies or A: and/or B: drives. My Win7 and Win8.1 computers can get Win10 but I have a separate Notebook and a Desktop that will be getting Win10, didn't put the preview version on them.

    Win 8.1 64

    I used to be on sevenforums for a long time and made an account here on eightforums, but never really had the time to hop on and chat with you guys. I came here yesterday to see what was up and started wondering where everyone was. I know a lot of the people I knew on SF might no longer be online, and I myself have been away for nearly two years.... Just wondering if there is already a tenforums that is up and running and if everyone is spending more time there...
