Yeah I got w8 for $14.95
New leaked screenshots of Windows 9 (threshold, build 9795, compiled on July 13th)
They say Windows 9 will have voice assistant Cortana and Start Menu which can actually expand and fill up the screen
I'd like to know what's under the hood, the GUI is customizable so I don't really care how it looks.
No more major updates for windows 8.1. They wanna focus on 9 / threshold or whatever they call it
I hope they do another $15 promotion
Nope, Update 2, that they aren't calling Update 2 is coming out on the 12th.
Some news about 9
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.
Meh, hopefully they're do like what they did with W8 and make it like $50 at launch. I'll buy then.
Plus, new screenshots here
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.
Colour of start menu is customizable
I just turned my pc on, first time in 3 days and low and behold not only straight to desktop(as it has been a while) But

^congrats for the latest updated beta
NEWS: MS spokesman leaked that Win 9 upgrade will be free for Win 8 owners! Expected to be confirmed soon on TPU....
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.
No way in heck will it be free.
Lol next Windows is 10 not 9

Huh? You serious? 8.1 now has a proper start menu? How'd you do that?
That is what I was wondering as well. I still had to install ClassicShell.
Wasn't that the 8.1.1 update?
