If history is judge, Windows 9 is going to be a success.

MS had their usual "every other OS is a complete failure" with Windows 8, so Windows 9 is already looking good even though I know nothing about it yet.

Although TBH, XP-4-Life. Even Windows 7, which is a major success, sucks ass compared to XP in many ways. W7 is such an unstable inefficient bloated buggy piece of sh*t OS IMHO. Granted it has a few features XP doesn't that would be nice to have (like TRIM support), but XP could have had those features if MS wasn't so gung-ho about releasing a new OS every few years and abandoning older OS's completely.

If it wasn't for the eventual lack of software/hardware support for XP and the increasing security risk due to no more updates, I would never upgrade.

I'm looking forward to seeing Windows 9. I am a big fan of 8.1 and I now think the touch side is the best of any of the touch os's on the market but the desktop/none touch side can be improved and if they can do this I think Microsoft could be on for a winner os.

Yep 8.1 is the best touch Os this world has seen and I've used all that exists in the market.

I am the same I'm not. Massive fan of ios or android but its all personal preference. For me I don't use my surface for media I use if for doing work at home which is editing my web site, emails, one note, syncing photos, and I also work from home with it too using remote desktop, vnc and our help desk. I could not do all of this on my iPad or xoom when I had them.

No metro UI on Server OS... is this a dream? Thank F'ing GOODNESS!!

Can't wait to take the preview build for a spin.

The cloud backup is a nice touch.
