    Windows 9


    The rumor mill as now posted on several sites that Windows 9 is now going to be coming out in November 2014.

    Don't kill the messenger. . .please. . .

    Thanks, Lee. Don't worry I won't shoot.

    Wow! That's 20 months away. I was hoping it would be sooner. Not that is matters because I'm enjoying 8, but I'm awful curious as to what it is.

    I just hope they get it right soon with desktop and phone. When there will be no need use for Android and IOS.

    That's what I'm hoping for and I think they're heading in the right direction with Windows 8 and Surface.

    Probably more of the same. Just refinements based on stuff they need for mobile(probably extra phone support also) and streamlining the interface for a more seemless experience between RT and desktop. It'll also be the OS people use as an excuse to upgrade from 7 as being the 'fixed' version. Hopefully by then touchscreen monitors become more mature. Right now they've been trailing behind regular monitors in capability per size and they really need to catch up. It doesn't make sense to me to upgrade to a touchscreen if its the same size and resolution as the monitor I have now(especially since my current monitor also has a coax jack and acts as a TV).

    If it were like a 27" with 2560x1440 res or something like that and included touch.. then maybe. But right now the touchscreen is simply dragging up the rear when it comes to comparisons versus non-touch monitors.

    If I were Microsoft, and since they want to push touch on your desktop, they should probably look at making such a monitor and selling it direct. 1920x1080 won't cut the mustard though(especially since the Pro can output to the higher resolution natively). It has to be bigger than 24" with a higher res and touch to really get people to jump. With a base flexible enough to be situate the screen at multiple angles.

    Just like they used 7 as an excuse to upgrade, being a fixed version of Vista you mean?

    Hilarious, you are getting your excuses in now.

    Its not my excuse. That'll be their excuse, when really.. 8 was fine.

    My excuse is I have a Surface Pro and thats what i use 8 on for the time being while i learn it :>. I have the Win 8 DVD for the workstation being used as a coaster for the time being.

    Fine for you - but apparently not fine for a lot of people.

    It is not hard to understand.

    9 being the fixed version of 8 with added and improved features will justify any of us upgrading one time comes.
    PCIe was an excuse for me to upgrade my mother board, CPU and OS. Now UEFI is excused upgrade all that again.
    The only thing stopping me from doing it right now is lack of cash.
