Hello guys!

(I'm not sure I'm in the right section, but let's give it a try...)

You know, there are a lot of things missing in Windows... And guess what: I'm missing of ideas for an oral presentation in college!

So if you could create ANY program on Windows, what would it be?

Let your imagination go!

Comment below.

<<You know, there are a lot of things missing in Windows...>>

Such as?

Since you posted in the Win 7 forum...am I to assume that you have a list of items which are lacking in Win 7...that you believe should be incorporated in a particular version of Win 7?

An operating system is merely intended to provide the basic tools for a user...to install/use the programs of choice. It is the programs installed by the user, a very personal choice...that determine what specific functions are to be attempted/performed on any O/S.

This topic seems more suited to the Gen Chat forum, I will move this to that forum.

"An operating system is merely intended to provide the basic tools for a user"

That's exactly the point of my post :)

But since I need information for my presentation in college, I need your opinions: what would you add to windows to be a more complete OS? What program would you create for it if you were an expert dev?

BTW, thank you for the redirection ;)

P.S: sorry for my bad english!

A biometric based prequalifying user introduction and test application. We don't let people drive cars or operate heavy machinery without 'testing and qualifications'? Why allow them to buy/own/operate machines that can wreak havoc on innocent victims and cause massive financial damage to themselves and others without some basic skills and knowledge?

I know it's a pipe dream and has a billions of obstacles to overcome. But it's what I would like to build and see in place or something similar at some point. This would be one way educate new users and reinforce good habits for regular users and help combat cyber crime.

How about ANY version of Windows that actually worked right the first time?

Oh yeah, that was Windows 3.1 before they complicated it all up!

Exactly what kind of things are missing form Windows that you would like to see?
Remember, as has been pointed out, the OS is nothing more than a vehicle to accomplish things.
What one does with it is up to the user.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Windows should make a library of print drivers and require ( strongly encourage) printer manufacturers to build their systems around one of these drivers so you just plug in and go.
( Not like the stupid Zebra 450 printer that UPS supplies that even their own supplied drivers can't make work right in Windows 7 64 bit. Not that I'm bitter and frustrated at the moment. :crazy:)
