Does anyone know if it will support Windows 7?

No it does not.
Windows 7 is from 2009, it's pretty old now sadly :'(

Do we know that for certain?

And honestly I doubt it's make much of a difference any way. if DX12 doesn't have any hardware requirements then it probably won't matter in the end anyway.

Am I wrong to think this?

Windows 7 doesn't even have full support for DX11.1.

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

It's time to move on. Windows 8.1 is just as good as 7 now (and will be even better once they bring back the Start Menu (which personally I didn't miss anyway)). If you're gonna be stubborn at the very least upgrade to 9 when it comes out.

I'm fine with Windows 8 but there's no reason for me to fork over another $100 for it when W7 does everything I want. Not even for DirectX12. I treat my operating system like the CPU - I'll upgrade when I build a new PC entirely.

It's just BS that Microsoft would lock out a large chunk of the userbase like that. But it IS Microsoft.

^Should've gotten the $15 upgrade when 8 came out. I'm glad I did.

When DX12 launches in holiday 2015, Windows 7 will be six years old. At some point MS needs you to buy a new version of Windows. Mainstream support for Windows 7 ends in January 2015, btw, not supporting Windows 7 with DX12 is entirely fair.

If you dont want to upgrade, thats fine, but its not BS for them to not support Windows 7 with DX12. They're not doing their usual "you must buy the newest version of windows which we just released" crap either, they're supporting Windows 8 along with Windows 9.

The sad fact is that almost every studio will stick with DX11.0 if Microsoft requres Windows 8 and above for DX12

There's always hope for OpenGL to make a difference, but then again, almost no one uses it
