    Ideas for Windows 8


    Since we haven't even hit pre-alpha for this thing yet, I thought I might as well begin with some things Microsoft should include:

    1)Three editions: Netbook, Home, and Pro.
    2)Brand new UI, but keep the taskbar!
    3)Built in the M programming language (as opposed to C++).
    4)Out-of-the-box essentials (Office suite, web browser choice, torrent downloader ).
    5)Virtual Desktops.
    6)Extended clipboard (copy more than just one thing!).
    7)New media player (combo of Zune and WMP).
    8)Built-in drivers for mice, keyboards, and flash drives.

    Also, I'd just like to add that I find it funny that we have this forum when Windows 7 hasn't even started shipping yet.

What's coming after Windows 8.1? Any ideas?
I'm starting to get the sense that Windows 8/8.1 is a sort of Windows Vista only with a lot less programming issues. It's certainly a faster, more stable OS than Vista but it reminds me of Vista because it's in between a sharp, very well done OS(Windows 7) and something that's coming up in the near...

My W8 Ideas
I think Windows 8 will be where Microsoft merges the xbox and pc. Instead of releasing a normal pc OS, it will be an xbox looking thing. It will link to your tv or monitor, and will play xbox games, (Which would be considered pc games now.) Then, instead of the average mouse, it will be designed...
