Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers
 
 

Hi there
IMO this is one of the things that I REALLY would like to see incorporated into Windows -- much more flexibility in the GUI-- Linux has had this ever since the X-server was ported from Unix to Linux ( for those without Linux experience the X server is the Video server ) -- the OS or user can customise almost an infinite choice of GUI's. The two most common GUI's are GNOME and KDE. KDE is the most "Windows like" but even this is highly customisabe.

Of course having a customisable gui would make operation in a Corporate environment more difficult but with a stable OS it should be doable.

The other thing that could be ported from Linux is a decent scripting system with good tools for scheduling jobs (like the CRONTAB).

One can do a certain amount already in Windows along these lines but its messy and not at all user friendly.

Cheers
jimbo

Not much apparently,have a look at this article.

Aero is part of dwm.exe, the process that controls all the fancy graphics of windows.

I've been excited about Windows 8 a long time ago and the UI is one of the first things that came into my mind.

But first, I need to save money for that and maybe buy a new computer as well.

So by the time Win8 comes out I'll need a new PC
Fair enough xD
By that time your hardware would be outdated anyways so why not kill two birds with one stone?

Or in this case... (puts on sunglasses) ONE WINDOW (WAAAAAAAAAAAA!)
