    Liked Windows systems.

    But after that MS invented windows 8 the world of desktops became weak.

    Windows 9 will have to revolutionize.

    Windows 8 and 8.x is failure. many bugs :(

    I stay in Windows 7 until arrival of Windows 9. :smokecowboy:

    Linux grows long after Windows 8.x.

    I expect nothing. After 7 seems this is the actual m$ trend. We can expect, more private surveillance (your personal exposed to a company and to a government), more metro and a slowly death to desktop.
    I expect linux would take its place.

    I hope that Regedit die!

    Would also like to see what has been cited by Mustafa Can
    If all programs are installed in this way, it would be much better and consequently bring more stability to the OS, because if a program present a problem uninstalling it would be complete, without a trace, without the garbage that continues to the Windows registry.

    Fundamentally the price of Microsoft Windows Operating Systems needs to change either aim towards open source/freeware or lower the prices extremely. In light of the changes offered by competitors including Linux , incorporating new architecture and hardware Microsoft can not continue to monopolise the market or dictate prices.

    • No more desktop mode
    • ARM/x64 only
    • Enforced UAC cannot be turned off
    • Enforced SmartScreen cannot be turned off, sends everything straight to the NSA
    • HDD only used for storing the OS. Cloud is enforced as well as M$ accounts
    • 3rd party browsers no longer allowed because of Store rules. Only IE remains
    • 16+ games no longer developed for "windows" because of Store rules
    • High-end looking games no longer developed for "windows" because of the lack of opengl support and because of metro D3D limitations
    • You no longer install drivers, you can only use hardware M$ provides drivers for
    • The slow, painful and gruesome death of Microsoft because of all the above

    In the meantime, we'll enjoy seeing linux rise and take the place it deserves.

    M$ can not make much money with the system for desktops.

    So this fusion of a single system for tablets and desktops.

    M $ only thinks about money.

    @ Pun,

    Desktops can not die. o_O

    Perhaps a surprise change in the future. :rolleyes:

    Yes, once they realize they can't appease all with a single solution and concentrate on proper development streams.... until then be content with a 'secondary' desktop OS to the touch-orientated design/development they are pursuing :p

    It's obvious where their priorities lie, thus as much as we would like to see the enhancements mentioned above.. all depends on how the new boss is able to vision the future of PC's... being an ex-Nokia guy.. what's the chances?

    1. We can only hope.
    2. The reason that it's widespread is 32bit applications can run both 32 and 64bit systems. Developers will know that and still making their apps 32bit. Every PC can handle Windows 8 can handle 64bit as well.
    3. I agree.
    4. Yes, toggle is good. If it reduce efficiency, users can toggle it off.
    5. But I don't like it. They should have it on toggle. With it we can both happy.
    6. I agree.
    7. Yes, I'll need to use command line to use lost settings.
    8. I can customize on regedit too, but It's not user friendly.
    9. Strongly agree. I hate this open with web thing and its one of the first tweaks I apply to windows. But new interface igrones this tweak :(

    1. Yes, It'll allow many developers to start making Windows Apps. But, Microsoft wants to earn money from store, this is not going to happen I think.
    2. No one knows.
    3. I agree. We can still make local accounts and keep away from it, but I'll prefer more privacy.
    4. I always wanted this. But they are doing exact opposite thing.
    5. Same as 4. Things like Ribbon menu, Transparency etc. should be optional.

    Microsoft can continue their monopoly, they don't lost their OEM's yet. There are also bunch of compaines to making apps to Windows. But, Microsoft forget that they sell their product because of them and igroning them.

    Making your tablet of course damages other companies like Samsung, Asus etc. and they started selling their computers with ubuntu.

    Making your store is cool, but you are damaging other people's store by resistricting your OS to use only your store. Valve is an example of this.

    If Microsoft was support them, instead of igroning them, maybe valve will never make an Linux version. But look from the good side, there are many companies still make their games Windows only. Microsoft still have power to get back what they lost.

    I'm thinking about the same. It's perfect for both security and stability.

    Maybe its just me, but you guys really think windows 8/8.1 is unstable? i ask because you guys keep begging for a more stable os, but I havnt had a single crash since winme days, and i used and enjoyed every windows since windows 95 to 8.1, even vista was a great os for me, and i dare to say everything after XP has been rock solid for me. I really think an operating system is as stable as the hardware quality and drivers used ln the computer, starting form the power suppply, motherboard, ram sticks, etc. Always stay clear from cheap or unsupported hardware. As always my 2 cents.

    I don't use IE or plugins for it, but all kinds of apps install them, and I know there are 64 bit codecs but think of what MS ships vs installing a codec pack.

    Unfortunately it seems they will just let WMP and Photo Viewer (which screws up viewing pictures with my phone because it doesn't read EXIF tags and doesn't look like it has been changed since Vista), and force you to use the crappy metro apps, like I want to view a damn photo in forced full screen mode.

    Maybe Steam's OS will fill the void for us hardcore gamers?

    I don't think so, it will probably be too Steam-centric, no general distro features. However, nothing will stop the client from running on any distro, even on Windows 9 if the desktop happens to stay (which is not likely).
