I'd like to know what's under the hood, the GUI is customizable so I don't really care how it looks.

I hope I can just do an update thingy to m 9 and not have to pay for it with my left arm! I think I would pay a reasonable amount, say $50 bucks, or less, to upgrade. Otherwise I would have to stay with 8.1 until they decide to no longer support it! LOL.

Yet another form of gadget: we have had Vista desktop gadgets, Win7 gadgets, Win8 Live tiles, and now, Win9 Live Start menu.... Any of them is just fine to me.
BTW, still no Office Outlook Life Tile :( Does MS lack more devs to make it happen?

Dunno where to post so here it comes:

new leaked screenshots of new MS Office





One of the new features is a more modern version of “Clippy” the paperclip assistant. It's called “Tell me” and it's basically a text bar that sits at the top that allows you to ask the software for help on how to use the software.

I don't know. The rumour is based on a translation from a quote of a MS India rep. That translation just says "Windows 8 will update automatically" which... really doesn't mean anything. Taken at face value it could be like the Windows 7 to Windows 8 upgrade (you download a setup program an install W8 from within W7) just that the setup program would be push through Windows Update.

Even if the free upgrade is true it could be only true for emerging markets (India, China, etc). I really can't see Microsoft giving away an OS worldwide. That being said I hope they do another $15 upgrade promotion. ;)
