Win 7 will have long life
Windows 7 will eventually become old enough that new hardware and new applications will not work. I suspect that that time will be longer than MS planned just as XP has lived much longer than anyone would have expected. Vista was never accepted and thus many refused to leave XP until Win 7. I suspect Win 8 will make Win 7 live longer than expected. Maybe Win8 should be renamed to Windows Vista-Me. Of course Win 8 left SilverLight and WPF in less than a good position and many of us invested in these since last year they were the future. This is sad in that the desktop base OS seems to be stable and works well.
