the new UI with touch screens will be the future of Windows.
If so, then the future of Windows itself would be in doubt.

I can see Windows 7 being around for as long as people can persuade MS to support it - or until WIndows 9, 10 or 11 comes along in a few years with a "new" paradigm - which is actually the old desktop idea brought back but with different style borders and colours. I am looking forward to upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 11!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
