Statistically speaking, Windows 9 should be great according to the one on one off Microsoft have been having over the years...

I don't know what the hurry is. Vista PCs seemed to hang on the shelves forever at Best Buy. I kept putting off buying waiting for the SP1 preload. Finally I giae up and bought one. Like a month later SP1 comes out and won't go on the thing. I buy a 64 bit Vista SP1 PC. Windows 7 comes out. Fine. I like the Taskbar progressbar thingy, jump lists etc. So before even an SP2 they dump it for W8. Same deal again. One service pack and out.

It seems like a lot of churning, except for the fact the looks and features decline instead of improve. The technical improvement I see is GPT. Seems like they could have stuck that onto W7 SP2 if they wanted. But then no up front cash from current users.

+1

What would be really great is if they put back Aero Glass and 80% of what they took out of 7 and 8..

Al'a ... List of features removed in Windows 7 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and List of features removed in Windows 8 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

oh, and did I mention Aero glass?

Sadly though, M$ doesn't generally suffer from "coming to their senses"...

They need to release two versions.
Windows 9 Desktop and Windows 9 Touch
Until this happens, anything else will be crap.

I've been saying that since my first glimpse of the toy-like Win 8 tile thing-a-ma-jig.

Odd as it may seem, I never liked Aero glass and have it shut off on both of my Win 7 machines. However, the UI formerly known as Metro is the opposite extreme and is equally distasteful to me.

It can even be one version with a choice of UI. But expecting one UI to work well with both desktop and touch is unrealistic.
