NeXTSTEP was released almost 3 decades ago, and it easily BTFOs any OS/WM; give it the CDE colour scheme and it will be the perfect interface.
Wasn't this designed by Steve Jobs when he got fired by Apple? It also got cancelled then a Linux WM was made called window maker that reused all of the source code, which you can still use now.
AfterStep is its spiritual successor.
never heard of afterstep, even the wikipedia mentions
>uploaded 17 years ago
archive the video now. steve jobs will be gone forever soon
That's just the Xerox Alto UI with some depth added to it. The Amiga also used that in 1986.
>windows 7 was released a decade and a half ago
an I'm still using it B)
My PC can't run it because my CPU is too new, and even if I did half of my features would get disables.
>i want shit to look like old stuff
then make it. it's not rocket science.
Yeah I'm going to try those add ons that supposedly make windows 10 look close to windows 7. Not gonna bother now but sometime this month.
Literal excrement looks better than what we have now, so this is not some great achievement.
>optional survey from a gaymen site
So you want mandatory data collector survey?
The only use for a computer in Anno Domini 2023 is for Gaming

computers are not toys, if you want to play games buy a console.
Consider the following
Games are not toys either.
>"computer" instead of " my computer".
Win7 looked like shit but it was at least a sane and usable OS.
Show me a single OS that looks better.
I will now upgrade to your cute and funny OS
That's a wallpaper, not an OS.
High clarity but boring.
>win7 fag is illiterate
>tranime homo thinks his hideous soi OS that copies Mac Starbucks hipster design looks good because he put an anime wallpaper on it
Sorry nagger, the only one copying Mac is Windows 7
There is literally no similarity at all.
sure, it's all just a big coincidence
no similarity at all
Most of that shit is plenty different compared to the imitation that went on in the 90s.
But yeah microsoft has a history of imitating badly.
she's full of ads
Windows 2000 server
Windoze retards, take your pick!!!
Windows peaked at XP and has been regressing ever since
Sad but true. 7 was the closest we've gotten to a decent OS since
Yep, I remember thinking it's beautiful and happily pirating RC version before official release. Very sad that it's the last great Windows
>A decade and a third ago*
I think the main issue is that a lot of geeks are design-blind, and can't see how tacky Windows 7 was.

The mentality in this comment is exactly the reason computer UIs suck today. A computer us a tool retard. It's not a substitute for your pathetic non-life. It's not your ego. It's not a fashion statement. It's supposed to be easy to understand and easy to use. Nobody who uses computers for work gives a shit about how "tacky" they look.
The tackiness gets in the way of being easy to understand and use
That's the glass GUI that I didn't use because it used extra resources and because it was a vista playskool thing. I always used the windows 2000 type interface with flat colors and squares, and now I have openshell doing similar on 10
That's what a modern system looks like
and runs smooth on a computer with a CPU half as fast as the one in your phone
anyone got any bugs like this?
i was running vista prior 7 release before moving back to xp
7 was pure shit too
Man I remember seeing this image on /a/ back in 2011/2
The last good MS product.
>inb4 "just use LTSC" footfag
>let's make the shutdown button tiny for no reason
>with tons of empty space around it for no reason
>and the other power functions hidden for no reason
i already have a physical shutdown button
I just had Windows 11 installed because the IT guy at the shop recommend it, need to fix system quick get home.
Anyhow, any tips installing apps without the system preventing it. games etc. please.
