Can't say I blame them. Windows 7 is about to (if it hasn't already) enter the extended support period.

By the time a worthwhile usebase for developing dx12 games exists, win 7 will be 7-8 years old.

Not worried, don't think Microsoft can mess up win 10 more than 8.

Win 8 is a good os, it's snappier than win 7, boots faster, and if you don't like metro there are plenty of free solutions that takes care of that.

The win 8 hate reminds me of people still talking **** about vista when the service packs had basically turned it into win 7.

There are definite haters of Win 8 (I am not one of them), fellow workers have had nothing really good to say about their experience with Win 8. One returned a laptop, bought a laptop with win 7, one did what you said, turned it into a more Win 7 atmosphere minus Glass, several others just complain to no end .

I really like to know who really uses Metro for applications on the desktop at over 25% of their computer usage - as in the percentage of Win 8 users that is. For me it is just bloatware except for Net-flix .

Why would anyone expect Windows 7 to get DX12 when it didn't even get DX11.1 and 11.2?

DX12 on Windows 7 would have done much for the adoption rate however, especially since all Nvidia's DX11 GPUs and AMD's HD 7000 will be able to use it.

It will probably come to Win 7 but not the full feature set.
