    Don't you know your the beta tester for them we all are. That's how they run their software business. Rush it out! If any issues are still left not fix they say. Nah will work it out in some updates. That's why there is a Windows Update Link in every Windows OS Version!

    Windows OS A Work-in-Progress (aka not finish yet).

    To me Windows 7 64-bit is what I'll be using until I see something more stable from them.

    So what I'm curious about, is what will happen to Windows 9?
  6. Windows 9 series released 20 years ago.
    MS Windows 95, 96, 97, 98 and ME.
    Windows ME the computer history best OS ever ad never will better anymore bc no administrator function anymore only guest and guest who named as administrator.
    Windows 7 supprted till 2020 so will be XP 2.0

    I wonder if they'll announce the "subscription plan"? The rumor is Win 8 users will get the upgrade for "free". I suspect yes, "free" to install, then $X per month. My question - What about users WITHOUT INTERNET? I suspect Win 8.1 will be the last buy-n-done OS by Microshaft. That should make it the most used OS on the planet once they cut-off support for Win 7. Going to a subscription model will KILL sales of Win 10. They always seem to find a way to shoot themselves in the foot.

    9 is skipped. Some BS about coders using some 9x line to id the OS, and thus Windows 9 would cause big compatibility issues. I don't know how true that is, but what I do know is true is that there is no Windows 9, it will be 10 after 8.
