I've seen that and laughed.

They want to say it's to get as far away from 8 as possible. That would make sense IF it actually looked different than 8. All of the leaked screens show the exact same looking UI with Metro attached to the start menu. Not exactly a wild change.

This is the only thing that truly can make any sense.

I also suspect the timing of Windows 10ís release was a factor. A solid date wasnít given, but Microsoft did say the new OS was coming after next yearís BUILD conference. That timing potentially puts Windows 10ís release in line with iOS 9, assuming Apple AAPL +0.73% sticks to its typical release schedule. iOS and Windows arenít directly comparable (yet), but having two competing operating systems released with similar version numbers would draw inevitable comparisons Iím sure both companies would rather avoid.

Here's the release preview video:


Apparently the tiles in the start menu are changeable/removable just like the Start Screen was. Honestly I don't mind the look of it - they're still trying to unify their OS's somewhat in regards to Windows Phone + WinRT + Desktop. Though I'm one of the "few" that likes Win8.

For the final time, I actually like 8.1 but my only complaint is the crashing I had on my machine (the issue I could never figure out a solution to) and not having my classic theme. My daily VM I setup actually uses 8.1 with DWM disabled for aero basic.

I know - never said anything about you lol. My comment wasn't directed to anybody - I tried to put more spaces below the video that I was replying in quote to your reply to make it separate.

My response was more toward the "few" comment of your reply. That seemed directed at me actually.

I actually put 8.1 on my ****master. It's not bad.

That's for the Windowed apps from the App store. Win8 was the first to introduce "apps" to Windows, and Win10 will make them windowed instead of full screen.

Nope, wasn't directed to you; didn't mean for it to seem like it was - more just a general statement, mostly because of the pretty unnecessary hate Win8 gets. Like I've said before, I understand your situation since you were having actual compatibility issues with it.

Works perfect in a VM and disabling DWM but disabling DWM breaks some things. That kinda sucks but better than the flat pastel color BS.

This is MS version of the Tic-Toc approach. Accept instead of releasing a good product followed by a great overhaul of a good product, the release a crappy product followed by one the is at least as good as the first one should have been.

Based solely off my personal opinion i Loved XP hated vista, loved 7 hated 8...Tic Toc.

Based on that video i think they are desperate for some fresh ideas from the community to breath some life into them. All i could hear was "this is what we came up with, please give us some ideas".

Before i get flamed i will say i don't think 8 or 8.1 are nearly as bad as some have made them out to be. And i do really like the idea of a cross platform OS. I've even been considering trading my iPad for a surface. But, i'm not there yet.

The problem with 8 is Microsoft knew what it shouldn't do, and they did it anyways trying to push through like Apple. They forgot who their userbase was and that was their demise.
