Ryzen was already running better with windows 7 (to do with power plan and how threading gets juggled)
and kaby lake is just skylake but with a better manufacturing process

and aside from that, there doesn't need to be any optimization

optimization is for more power saving features that get refined more and more, especially on the Intel side

on mobile that might be kinda interesting, but on a desktop, ehh

Don't make sense to block on that OS. I can understand W7 because it already long into extended support. But, by Mircosoft Lifecycle policy, an OS is supported a minimum of 10 years. Seems they need to update this policy if they don't want to support OSes for 10 years.

exactly this. it seems the main reason I hear people not liking 8.1 is the start screen, which for me was the selling point. To me the old start menu feels antiquated after you customize the start screen to your liking.

I much prefer 8.1 to 7 but there are many who still prefer 7 and that's fine. I do hate that metrosexual start menu but Star Menu X fixed that so I will continue to use 8.1 until I switch to Linux.

I doubt Microsoft even cares about this.

 

The only reason they did it to begin with is so people don't phone up for issues with older versions of Windows with bleeding edge hardware - which are bound to happen anyway.

And on top of that you never really have to use or even see the start menu.
