The Death of Windows 7 - Velox Systems

The Death of Windows 7

In case you didn’t know, Windows 7 will be decommissioned and unsupported come January of next year. You’ll need to plan on upgrading these bad boys (I have two) or replacing them. But, I wanted to take this time to walk down memory lane with Windows 7.

In true Microsoft fashion, Windows 7 was an operating system that replaced a terrible version (remember Vista?), they seem to get this right every other time. It was released in 2009. Here are some of features you’ve probably come to take for granted that were introduced in Windows 7:

  • “Pinned” programs on the taskbar
  • “Snapping” windows to the sides of the screen
  • “Shake” to minimize all windows except the one you’re shaking
