    What ever it will cost it will bring way more sales than it bring now.

    It would end up costing millions of dollars on Microsoft's behalf because they're making a HUGE marketing effort for the metro Start Screen UI on both Windows 8, Surface, and Windows Phone 8. To go back after that and say, "Ok, we'll put in a start menu after we just made a huge deal over its replacement" would just screw them over financially and their reputation. Investors might shy away from them, and shareholders will be out, probably, for blood as to what they're doing. After all of Microsoft saying that the Start Screen is better than the menu and to go back to the menu will end up diminishing their opinion.

    Isn't it called Windows Blue though? Or could it be just a Windows 8.5 type update like how Windows Phone 7's Mango update was a huge update and was considered Windows Phone 7.5?

    I give a middle finger now to Steve Sinofsky.

    It's now claimed that he refused to make Windows 7 touch enabled, although OEM partners had tablet hardware that would had been ready for Windows 7's launch.

    OH. MY. BOMBSHELL. Now wonder Ballmer fired him, Windows 7 tablets would had officially been out before the ipad, and Microsoft would had been in a better position in doing so.

    You guys have all been running around explaining how the start button and such would NEVER work in a touchscreen environment. Now, we are speculating that Microsoft could have had an advantage over Apple had Windows 7 been touch enabled.

    I assume that he means W7 should have had Metro.

    I am guessing a touch enabled Windows 7 would be in fact closer to a Windows 8 Start Screen than menu. Using the start menu with touch is literally fingering than touching.

    I'm growing tired of your BS. Just because Windows is trying to go to a more rapid release schedule doesn't mean it's going to lose the name "Windows". You can't say more because you don't know anything.

    In the past, they released every 3 years and charged a fairly high amount for it. And in-between releases, you got free updates and upgrades in features via service packs. Now they may be going to more of a Mac OS scenario where they release incremental upgrades of the OS almost yearly but they charge for those incremental upgrades. And if it's like on the Mac, you are kind of forced to upgrade due to how they handle software on that side of things.

    It's 2 years Microsoft said they will have a new name for the next OS and Windows 8 will be the last OS name Windows, what's wrong with this, if they want to change ?
