Hmm. Isnt it a bit too early. i think they are pushing it too early personally.
Windows Vista = Jan 2007
Windows 7 = Jul 2009(~2.5 Years)
Windows 8 = Oct 2012(~3 Years)
Windows 9 = Apr 2015(~2.5 Years)
Seems like they are pretty much sticking to the same schedule, give or take a few months.
Please keep away the start meny. Expand on Metro instead.
About the release schedule:
Screw Metro, it is terrible. Give people the option to use what they want.
Like earlier versions of Windows, which has a HOST of different desktops and ways of using them? Metro ... has issues, but I like it. Refine it, expand it, make it better.
So is this what became of the Windows 8.2 rumors? Where they were bringing back a full start menu finally. I hope they can come up with more than just that to make people fork out money for it. That sort of thing should be free for existing 8 users.
Thats fine, it works great on touch devices, but give traditional desktop users the option to use the traditional start menu. They had the code there, they didn't have to do anything beyond include it and give those that want to use it a check box to enable it.
I want to be able to choose between having the start menu or metro at installation(or first boot on a prebuilt), that way I would never have to see metro period because its more than likely not going away.
remixedcat, that's uneatable.
Metro is terrible for the workplace. Bring back the classic start menu and you will see businesses purchase Windows 9.
Nope. It's eatable. I had something big like that at Red Robin and it was gooood. I had enough for 2 meals. He he. Not bad for 12 bucks.
Why to buy when you can get something better for free?! (rhetorical question)
Now tell me if you can understand humans. I cannot.
I admire your talent.
2? my gosh. cant even eat half of that. lol. yeah like Blue-Knight said I admire your talent as well.
Well I know people missed the classic start menu. since win 8 release, been using it. It is just getting used to it honestly. I dont admire the metro style of win 8/8.1 but im not totally against it. I stopped using win 7 cause M$ never release SP2. Looks like they really pushing people to move towards win 8.
If I can wish, would like to have option on the next M$ release to install a metro style or classic windows set up. I do miss the classic start menu where I can select all the programs instead of the win8.1 where I have to click alot of places inorder to find the programs i want.
Have you tried Start8? You would swear you were still on Windows 7. Everything works just like on 7.
And you can even try ModernMix too, which will control the behavior of all the modern UI apps when you DO use them.
I'm betting that 9 will have the option to have the normal start menu and options or a metro style.
Let's hope so!
yes i did tried. but dont like it cause at some point i experienced some weird things when any of the start menu programs (freeware and paid). Cannot really explain it well but it has some conflicts (maybe) in programs I installed. I just gave up didnt want to dig more into trouble. My laptop still runs win 7 and my desktop runs 8.1. So it is just getting used to it. ^_^
Not only would I want Metro gone, but I want Aero back.
I'm still on 7 for these two main reasons (especially Metro).
There is no need for a SP2 to be released for Win7.
Other than update bundling. Takes quite awhile to get a new SP1 disc up to date these days.
yeah you might think that way. look at win xp, they have until SP3. win 7 SP1 and just continous update? i would want SP2 for a small space for reprogramming / reformatting my PC instead of having enourmous update after SP1 installed
