Windows 7 Spotter (the club)

Recommended Posts

Windows 7 has been one of the best Microsoft OS; now the support is over, but that didn't stop businesses from keep using it. As a matter of fact, Windows 7 has been the de facto replacement for many Embedded systems who were deployed across the world in a period when Windows XP Embedded was slowly starting to get to the EoS path.

This topic is dedicated to the Spotters, namely people who see Windows 7 or its derivatives (Win 7 Embedded) running in the wild and take a picture. 

We started one for XP as well when support was over: 

 

 

Alright, let's crack on, shall we?

The first picture is from a Win 7 system running advertising.

The second picture was taken today by me in Milan, Italy and shows Windows 7 in idle on the login screen:

To be picky (as I am, BTW) no, that (nice) thread was started no less than three years after EOS, not three days, this may be a relevant difference.

Yep, that's why waiting a few years might be needed to have more meaningful entries, still the photo taken about the scaremongering since the 14th Jan is nice, particularly because it is the same day a (really serious) insecurity in Windows 10 was made public.

@FranceBB

You see? 

@KawaiiBunnyRU

It is about "photographic proof", not "testimonials", see the original thread:

This said, I have seen things you people wouldn't believe. Diskless thin clients running custom OSes. I watched terminals failing to connect to mainframes with blinking cursors. All those moments ...
