Despite its age, Windows 7 is still one of the most iconic operating systems in the world and, until the start of this year, was also the most popular desktop operating system, after ultimately succumbing to the rise of Windows 10. It still accounts for nearly 40% of the desktop market share for Windows, however, and you'll find many a Microsoftie swearing by its name.
It's no surprise, then, that an enterprising UI designer decided to try and imagine what Windows 7 would look like if it was Microsoft's flagship product today. How would the company's new Fluent Design System change the operating system's classic look?
Kamer Kaan Avdan's Windows 7 - 2018 Edition concept successfully, and rather beautifully, adds various Fluent Design elements such as light and transparency to the operating system, while still maintaining hints of its classic look. The concept also brings dark mode and dynamic wallpapers which change based on the time of day to the nearly 10-year-old OS.
The same designer also has a similar design concept for Windows XP, though unfortunately the two seem a little more like re-skins of one another.
