Windows 9 Is Coming: No Start Button, Launch Date in November 2014

Softpedia - Windows 8 is quite a new operating system and even if it hit the market in October, Microsoft is already working on two major upgrades.The first of them is reportedly called Windows Blue and may arrive as soon as this summer in the form of a Windows 8 upgrade available at absolutely no cost, while the second is the full Windows 8 successor, apparently baptized Windows 9. (Hi-tech, Microsoft, Software, Windows, Windows 8, Windows 9, Windows Blue)

well I guess I'll stay with windows 7 for a wile longer till maybe windows 10 fixes 9 rushed features
KingPin  +   631d ago
actually it looks like 9 is here to fix some of what is wrong with windows 8. maybe if windows 9 comes with 3 service packs afterwards that actually gives people what they want, more people will switch over to it.

i dont believe this one bit! thats like saying the wiiU2 is coming out in 2015
Blackdeath_663  +   631d ago
well now that you mention it another version of the wiiU being announced this year's E3 isn't that unlikely. perhaps a wiiU bayonetta bundle with extra features i guess? anyways back on-topic releasing a new windows in 2014 and calling it "windows9" will do more harm than good they should call it windows 8 advanced or something cus all it really looks like (if rumours hold true) that it will be a fixed version of windows 8 like what @KingPin said to encourage people to move over.

If its anything like Windows 8 with its horrible metro crap and refusal to install most programs, then i'll stick with windows 7. I actually prefer Vista to 8 (Thats how bad it is)
solid_warlord  +   631d ago
amen to that. That forced metro look of W8, was just beyond nasty. I rather it be slower than be fast and look like windows 8.

Its beyond ridiculous, i can't stand it. The forced metro look is STD of windows. Its an abomination.

You can force it to boot to a somewhat usable desktop with 3rd party apps, but getting most things to work via that is a nightmare.

windows 7 + AIDS = windows 8.
windows 8 + band-aid = windows 9.

Um... windows 8 is Windows 7 with a touch interface... I think you may be referring to Windows RT
Dark_Overlord  +   627d ago
I've been using Windows 8 for the past few weeks, so its definitely what were talking about :) Uninstalled that crap last night and went back to 7.

Although its supposed to be windows 7 with a touch interface for it, believe me its anything but that. Had so many problems trying to get software installed (That is apparently compatible with it) and even when they were installed it was 1 problem after another, going back to 7 has eliminated these problems.

The most annoying part is the lack of desktop without 3rd party apps.

If windows 9 is anything like this, I won't be going near that either.

It is by far the worst OS MS have created (Yes that includes 98 v1, Me and Vista) :)

@Dark_Overlord I've been using Windows 8 as my primary OS for over a year now. There is some memory management issues that creep up with older software from the XP days, but Windows 8 will run 99 percent of all software developed in the last 5 years. I run steam and only Drakensang has had issues running (the first game the sequel runs fine)

But I'm not ready for Windows 9 :P

They need to quit screwing around and make a windows for non touch screens and another windows for touch screens instead of forcing the stupid metro crap on everyone
gamernova  +   631d ago
Windows 8 never gave me an issues and I love it. Then again I know my way around a PC. Going to windows 9 once it's released too :D
aviator189  +   631d ago
same here.
I really don't miss the start menu one bit.

I just press the windows key and start typing away for what i want and the search results pop up instantly.

and it's made my laptop faster as well as great boot-up and shutdown times.

it's a much quicker OS the only negative is that it pays attention to the ram way to much and if you have some ram with even a little bit of bad memory you're going to find out fast. I have 800 bits of bad memory and if any system file hits that 800 bits the system will blue screen... I really need to scan and find out what stick it is... I'll simply move it so that it's not an issue
