Microsoft Windows 9. Huzzah!

Post by StroppyChops »

An online friend and I dickered on the forums some time back over the value of Windows 8, and we agreed for the sake of our bromance to never speak of it again. That said, here's a Geek.com update on Windows 9! It looks like Windows 9 will drop some of the freaky shi... features, and may include virtual desktops. Huzzah!
They’re clearly taking user feedback to heart and working to make Windows 9 the new Windows 7 — and squash any Vista-ness that’s been lingering in Windows 8.

I am okay, the world is wrong. Isn't there a psychiatric term for that? ;)

I'll sneak this in here while Digg3r is taking a time out...

Your Windows 9 upgrade could be free
Windows 9 can’t come soon enough for those who despise Windows 8 and never warmed up to the Metro interface. It’s slated to arrive early next spring, and here’s the kicker: it will be a free upgrade for many, and as cheap as $20 for others.

This is according to a new leak from WZor, who’s been right on the money numerous times before when it comes to new Microsoft products. Free OS upgrades from Microsoft also aren’t anything new. Generally, the company has opened up a free upgrade window around launch time where shoppers can upgrade a newly-purchased computer from the previous Windows OS to the latest version.

They also threw discounts at everyone they could to spur Windows 8 adoption: Windows XP holdouts, students, families, and early adopters who installed the Release Preview. It was widely believed that those incentives had a lot to do with concerns over how consumers would react to the Metro interface.

With all the heat Microsoft has taken over Windows 8 and Metro — and the backpedaling it has done in Windows 8.1 — it’s reasonable to think that there will be a slew of Windows 9 upgrade offers, too. The company is eager to get things back on track, and dangling free or low cost upgrades is a good way to smooth things over with disgruntled (and vocal) Windows 8 users.
