    so windows 9 name is skipped.

    So the start button is back. the metro is kinda slim.


    from the looks of it. its what Windows 8/8.1 should have been like.


    if you want to try it out.. but nasty bugs are in the tall grass.

    If it has the Metro UI at the start up, then, no, and only when I'm forced to update, will I update.

    That hardly looks any different from Windows 8.1 and that's.. Windows 10? Where did Windows 9 go?

    The YouTube still capture in the OP looks like this guys cum face (I'm guessing) .

    On topic this should be a free update, I don't want to have to fork out $100 odd dollars for what windows 8 should of been (I mean I'm gunna download it anyway but you get the jist)

    I like metro personally, took a while to get used to but wouldn't go back to a start menu again

    Thanks MS, but I still don't prefer touchscreen interfaces cluttering up my desktop PC.

    The guy seems to be gay so that may explain why he speaks the way he does and has that hair style.

    Instructions for buying a windows 10 PC (once they're officially out):

    1. Unpack PC from box with all cords etc
    2. Properly connect your keyboard, mouse, monitor etc
    3. Reformat drive c: and install your favorite flavor of linux
    Your welcome! XD

    "Multiple desktops," wow they added something that linux has been doing for 10-15 years now XD

    Away from this shithole
    I've been doing that as well thanks to software like VirtuaWin.

    They restored the ability to resize windows. Cool. One step closer to a normal OS. Next step is the Windows 7's alternative bottom bar, as the default one is uglier imo.

    Various people said the same thing about windows XP... though actually many of those still seem to be on it.

    Gambia, The

    every single linux distro is worse than windows me usability wise, maybe not if you include osx.
    Windows 7 is the best end user personal computer operating system ever conceived, doesn't mean im not gonna try 10 though.

    The whiners won, Start is back. Yay? I haven't used the Start menu for years, stopped long before the Metro interface replaced it. Essentially it was just a quick way for me to enter the Command Line, but in Metro all I have to do is press the Windows key and type in the name of whatever app I want to start, so yeah - no loss in productivity, and I'd argue it was actually beneficial. Of course people would sooner hang themselves than get used to a new interface.

    I forgot
    I used to hate on Windows 8 a lot, until my laptop forced me to use it if I didn't want to BSOD every few minutes.

    But 8.1 is infinitely better than 7 is, especially when you can just, y'know, disable Metro and just have the "start button" give you a list of apps instead of tiles or you could just move your mouse to the right and search, or use the Windows key and type.

    But noooooooo, people would rather mindlessly bash something regardless of whether it gets fixed or not :rolleyes: Just like Vista. Was it shit on launch? Hell yeah, had a lot of issues and, on launch, was pretty much garbage. Did Microsoft go and fix it up with some updates and service packs? Sure fucking did, and yet people still cry about it.

    As for Windows 10, if Microsoft does decide to "give it away" as other rumors have stated and if it doesn't fuck up previous driver support, I would probably update.

    Windows 8.1 is the best thing that happened to Windows since the invention of "windows" - whatever I want is a Windows Key away from me and I love it, not to mention the fantastic file copying/pasting manager with a progress bar that actually tells me relevant stuff. I love this system to bits.
