Random Facts of the Month![edit | edit source]

Did you know...

  • That the first build of Windows 8 to implement Redpill was build 7777?
  • That a minimal environment based on Windows 11 called Windows Validation OS exists?
  • That an edition of Windows XP called Windows XP Tablet PC Edition was released in November 2002 for Tablet PC computers?
  • That Windows 8.1 was the last version to ship with a DVD release? Starting with the physical releases of Windows 10, they ship with a USB mass storage device.
  • That the reason why Windows 9 was skipped because Microsoft initially wanted Windows 10 to be the last major version of Windows as regular, smaller updates would be released more frequently rather than releasing a whole new version every few years. Although, Microsoft broke this promise in 2021 with the release of Windows 11.
  • That after the release of PowerToys for Windows XP, Microsoft would not release an update to PowerToys until 2019 when Microsoft relaunched them for Windows 10 as open-source software.

Favorites[edit | edit source]

My favorite Operating Systems: Windows 7, Windows 10, and Windows XP. (7 and XP were the ones I used a lot when I was young and are still great to this very day.)

My least favorite Operating Systems: Windows 8/8.1 and Windows Vista. (Windows 8 was the worst OS because It was very poorly optimized for Computers without touchscreens while Windows Vista was kind of bad because even though the visuals of the OS were well-done, It is very slow on low to mid-end Computers because of its high memory requirements.)

My favorite Windows Wallpapers: The Windows 7 Harmony desktop wallpaper, The Windows Vista Aurora desktop wallpaper, The 2015 version of the Windows 10 Hero Wallpaper and The Windows XP Bliss desktop wallpaper. (These wallpapers are the best ever!)

My least favorite Windows Wallpapers: The Windows 11 desktop wallpaper, the desktop wallpapers from Windows 8/8.1 and the 2019 version of the Windows 10 Hero Wallpaper. (These wallpapers were not the best compared to previous Windows desktop wallpapers.)

My favorite Windows logos: Both the 2006 and the 2001 Windows logos. (I wish that Microsoft still used the Windows flag from XP, Vista and 7.)

My least favorite Windows logos: Both the 2021 and 2012 Windows logos. (I really don't like these logos because they are very simplistic and don't visually represent the advanced graphic capabilities of Microsoft Windows.)

My favorite Windows visual styles: Windows Aero and Luna. (These were the best looking visual themes from Microsoft!)

My least favorite Windows visual styles: The flat Aero theme in Windows 8 and later. (I wish that they kept the Aero theme from Windows Vista and Windows 7.)

My favorite Tech YouTube Channels: Michael MJD, Nobel Tech and Windows on Windows.
