    If it's free, why not? :)

    Nonetheless, Windows 8's interface hasn't been my cup of tea. Not on the PC at least. I wonder what Windows 9 will be like...

    Sure why not, I am sure most of windows 8.1 users will install Windows 9 beta when it comes out! :tasty:

    So it sounds like "Windows 9" is really just Windows 8 SP3, they're just changing the name to avoid the bad rep that 8 got.

    XP was 2000 with fancy GUI and 7 was Vista SP2 so what's new? Well if they don't put back the proper start menu in 9 , I can guarantee you that it will flop just like 8 is flopping [​IMG].
