What, you mean mouse & keyboard desktop users aren't going to be forced to use an interface designed for mobile and touchscreen devices? What an uncharacteristically sensible idea.

Hopefully win9 comes out sooner rather than later and is actually good. A new build is on the horizon and I don't want to get stuck with the bastard child OS again. Currently running Vista, which runs just fine, but vendors give it no love. AMD has stopped releasing drivers for it, while still continuing to support XP.

I'll agree that I hope Win9 is exactly like Win7 rather than 8. But I'm in no rush, there's no real benefit from upgrading Windows from 7 for me.

I think they heard the uproar, not only verbally but also monetarily. And with Ballmer gone there is no longer this push to unify the desktop and mobile UIs.

Barron's Names Intel One of the World's Most Respected Companies.

Well, except for that whole anti-competitive thing they did against AMD for which they had to pay $1B in the States and another $1B over in Europe. Hold on, hold on, from the article:
The annual list is based on a survey of professional money managers about their views on the world’s 100 largest companies by market value.
Ahhhhhhhh. That makes more sense. Monopolies ARE profitable. So, THAT's worthy of respect!

Taking the desktop away from tablets, especially the x86 ones seems like a huge step back.

They should ditch the RT versions, keep the desktop and make a tablet that can run google apps in a hybrid fashion.

Making Metro on the desktop optional is good news.

I thought in 8.1 they gave you back the start button, but all it did was load the Metro UI.

You can uninstall the pre-loaded metro apps in 8/8.1 but the whole thing should be optional to begin with.

Clicking on a desktop link to a sound/video/picture file and having it load up a metro app just adds salt to the wound so to speak.

Good riddance and about time for my new system which I keep postponing for 1-2 years. Still using my old system which I built in August 2009 and still using my initial Win7 installation. Only things upgraded are my HDDs (bought SDDs) and my GFX card.

Still working like a charm

Unfortunately, Windows 9 will probably still have that shitty "flat look" that seems to be all the rage of UI designers, lately (including IOS, the new OSX, and the new Android)

I fricken hate the "flat look".

Most people don't even use windoze 8. I only have windoze 7 because it came with my system and even then I dual boot into Antergos Arch linux distro, any flavor of windoze will always be slower than linux.

never mind windows 8, I remember installing server 2012 and being horrified trying to get the "start menu" up over RDP. No wonder it made so many people go to core.
Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.
