If those screenies are anything to go by it's a half-arsed attempt to appease.

For the love of God, those tiles. Make it stop already.

while I much prefer windows as it is now I think it be good for Microsoft to give a choice for new start menu or a classic one like windows 7 for those that want that

That was mainly because the display engine for OS X has always been based on the PDF format due to its NeXTStep roots (NeXTStep used Display PostScript which was a precursor to PDF (link)).

Will be interesting to see if they get back some of the customers they ****ed off with Windows 8. If windows 9 proves to be a good release then we will then have had

Windows 98 Not bad
Windows Millennium Rubbish
Windows xp Excellent
Windows Vista Rubbish
Windows 7 Excellent
Windows 8 Rubbish
Windows 9 ???????

And the pattern continues

I agree with finding of Windows, Windows 9 is just a another way of getting folk to part with their money and put in to Microsoft's pocket.

Its only Microsoft that charges for every new os,

Microsoft upgrades have been free since Apple's were free.

re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

I've never missed the Start button. A right-click on the Windows icon brings up quick access to most places in the system. The tiles that a left-click brings up are quite capable of starting programs up. I can work with and be happy with this arrangement. Even gone so far as customising some of the Start Screen tiles (using OblyTile).

http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u...ps96729437.png

The Windows 9 GUI kind of looks like the tiled Start Screen and the traditional Desktop have been merged into one ..or there's the option to do that. This could be a formula that will work for most people. It perhaps depends how customisable this will be.

Microsoft upgrades from one version to another version are charged for, for example from Windows Vista to Windows 8, service packs are free as was the update from 8.0 to 8.1. Walter

re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

8.1 was a free upgrade and was NOT a service pack. Apple upgrades from one version to another were charged for until 10.9 as well. 8.1 is no more a service pack to 8.0 than Windows 7 was a service pack to Vista.
