    Same thing that should have happened to Windows 8, scrubbed from existence before ever considered releasing to public.

    Is it trolling when you speak your mind? If so, I'm definitely trolling. The thought that I might actually be trolling must mean I am trolling. Surely trolling is not speaking your mind, even though you know you might insight a riot. On second thought, talking about Windows 8 in a Windows 10 thread is trolling. It's not my fault I see the same trash in Windows 10 that I despise in Windows 8.

    It's not trolling, it's your opinion, you're entitled to it and you shouldn't care if others don't agree with you. You've never insulted anyone that I've noticed and you don't force your opinions on others.
     
  6. What happened to windows 9?

    Windows Vista = Windows 6
    Windows 7 = Windows 6.5
    Windows 8 = Windows 6.1
    Windows 8.1 = Windows 6.2
    windows 9 = Windows ?
    Windows 10 = Windows 6.6

    Never forget "the revolutionary Windows 7 will be full rewritten and will be running on hundreds of microkernels and never will freeze"

    Cant wait.

    The main feature I want to see is being able to break off that stack of tiles and move them over the right side of the screen - they make an ideal sidebar. It would also be great if we could disable the "ribbon". For most of us, drop-down menus were easier to navigate and didn't waste all that space. Finally, bring back a little of the Aero-style beautification as well and most users will be overjoyed. We shouldn't need third parties to make Windows usable again.

    That darned ribbon. The first sign that MS could not care less about its users.

    I tried the Technical Preview for a bit. Dual booting with 7. Its ...... o.k. , theres some definite improvements over 8/8.1 but it still looks like its made for phones/tablets. As a P.C. user I feel like I'm getting left in the closet by Microsoft. Ribbons and charms and flat colorless U.I.'s should stay where they belong I.e phones etc. I use a real computer and need/want "bling" and the opportunity to USE the power I paid for when I bought this machine.
