Windows All good things come to an end, eventually, and operating systems are no different. Microsoft has reminded the public that support for several Windows versions will end over the coming months, which could likely have significant consequences if you or your company are still running these Windows versions.

I still wouldn't mind they take a page from the Win98SE experience, update it with a true x86-64 O/S core and hidden XP Home style of permissions (only accessed through safe mode or CLI) for a single user O/S-type of experience. A root password for administration and a separate log on password for the user - even if its limited to one user per system - is not a bad scheme to follow!

The whole Windows system folder layout made sense in Win98. Today's implementation doesn't improve on it by having so many layers - scattered layers at that - of folder/file locations for data, settings, and temp space.
