you mean you haven't got windows 12 yet ,,ppaaahh your abit behind the future !JMCecil wrote: The point is that OS's, Hardware and Software move on. When that happens, no one forces anyone to quit using what they already have. Software companies would be irresponsible to not mold their software to the upcoming technologies. They also have limited resources.
If I write something specific about W7, it will be because it is the supported OS of this version of Cubase. Let me give you an example. Cubase still has vestiges of a windowing paradigm from Widows 3.1 and Windows 95. Why? Why would they now choose the 1 million popups approach to replace some of that paradigm, when that has already lived and died a horrible flaming death as a bad user experience alternative? Why would they not choose an interface paradigm that both Apple and MS have settled on? There is a reason that the UI distinction between the two have started to merge. Notice the popular flavors of Linux are starting to look like OSX and W7. It's because users perfer the software that they use be integrated with the desktop and it's features. So, that any software they use behaves like any other software they use.
Even after that rant, it only has to do with how the program functions on the supported OS. When it is Win12, I'll be whining about what they are not doing properly on Win12, not questioning why they don't support Win7.
i do agree with some of what your saying but i 've only seen a couple of posts jm about people asking a simple question "will it or wont it " but the major debate has started by win 7 users not understanding the reasons why we have stayed on xp , i don't care personally if its supported or not ,if it works for me i'll use it and also build a higher spec daw to be in advance of the technology thats going to be forth coming ,thats the way i work , we all work different ways ,different os no one is right or wrong ,at the end of the day if your happy with what you've got then no reason to change .
i understand your point of view but there is still more of this to come as you gentleman across the water install and there are quite a few users over there still using xp , we are all here for the same reason "creativity " and weather its xp or 7 ,cubase ,logic in the end they are just tools to aid so there is no reason for people to be snobby (not aimed at you personally) about it !
nearly forgot ,if your a gear junkie like myself you can take advantage of all you people that are throwing away equipment as its not compatible and by god i love it !!
pheewwww thats that ,beer time !
