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.

well I guess I'll stay with windows 7 for a wile longer till maybe windows 10 fixes 9 rushed features

KingPin1156d 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_6631156d 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_warlord1156d 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.

Dark_Overlord1156d ago

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.

KingPin1156d ago

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_Overlord1152d ago (Edited 1152d 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) :)

Cueil1152d ago

@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)

Settler1156d ago

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
