I'd be amazed if it was. I have Windows 8 but went back to 7 as 8 just felt a little half baked but if Microsoft follow form of releasing a good OS every other release then 9 should take the best of 7 and 8 and be worth a look.

8 wasn't bad but needed some tweaking and Windows 9 will fix the shortcoming Windows 8 had, like lack of floating Window for Metro Apps and fully functional start button on Desktop and some new features like virtual desktop and dedicated notification tray, I think Windows 9 is going to be the best one on the Windows series that will offer a seamless experience of both Metro and Desktop features regardless of devices, touch or non-touch...
