    you say that, but win 9 is actually looking good from what we've seen so far.

    The page and relevant info has probably been ready for a while now but just on test servers, this might have just been accidentally pushed to live. It does actually happen since it is all done by humans and we are not perfect. Or did you really think the pages are made on the fly 5 minutes before going live?

  6. Actually TH might be an abbreviation for "Theta" which is the number 9 in the Ancient Greek numbering system.

    Not sure about threshold as a name. Suggests I should wait for the next version.

    I'm actually looking forward to it, I'm confident it'll be a winner like XP and 7 were and it has to be, M$ can't afford another vote of no confidence. Hopefully this new CEO isn't as big a chump as Ballmer was.

    I think I would have gone with, "Windows WC". (Who Cares).

    Theta for 'nine' seems 'ok'. Hope it comes with features I will want and not just a remix. Price will matter and any screwy 'rental' schemes will not be well regarded.

    We'll see.

    I guess calling it Windows 9 is stupid to the folks at Microsoft?

    Windows 9 called 'TH' is likely short for 'Threshold'

    Lke Windows8 should have been called Windows FU

    So you think they will be flushed with success?

    I think they'll be flushed. As to whether they'll ultimately need a plunger to get rid of it, is anybody's guess..:D

    The placeholder is the word Windows, while everyone waits for something better.

    Ah yes Apocalypse Now, hmmm yes very good.
  24. Better OS? Linux trash that has bugs from decades ago? Like Bash? And OpenSSL? There is no real alternative to Windows yet that is mainstream and actually works instead of recompiling packages all day with proper support for 100% of devices that have decent drivers.
  25. Obvious;ly stands for Th Toms Hardware, the greatest Tech review site the world has ever seen.
    Amirite? *nerd*
