I see new, I see inexpensive, not sure I see better.

Better is a strong word, windows 8 is a very good OS, so I am sure that MS will simply try to fine tune win9 and put some of the things that many users wanted back.
Lets hope that they want make the same mess as they did with windows me :bigsmile:

Not sure where that came from left field but market shares don’t reflect that view nor does users and corporation share that view.

The Enterprise version of Windows 9 will come without the Metro interface

But if one looks closely Metro is stuck on the program task side…so how can one say without Metro interface…when one see it right there??? Kinda a no brainer M$ still stuck on Metro Ramming down users throat and not learned any lessons that I can see.

“Microsoft is also still struggling with large number of users that’s still on Windows XP. The company has ended support for the OS and wants users to upgrade to one of its newer Windows versions. According to WZOR, Microsoft will have an “awesome” offer for Windows XP users to switch to Windows 9.”

Balmer and his Cronies will pry XP from my cold dying CPU!
Microsloth wants us to upgrade from a solid as a brick, works all the time OS to their shiney new looks like crap, works like a government union member, reliable as politician the day after an election, OS. All in the name of greed.
Gotta love the “Mrrkin” way.

I don’t understand this mentality at all. Windows XP was a good OS. It had a long development cycle, and overall, was the best system MS had released at the time. That said, after years of using XP, and having used Win7 these past few years, I can say that Win7 is far superior to XP in just about every department. Why anyone who can run Win7 reasonably well on their current machines would choose to stick with XP is way beyond me.

There must be possibly millions of older machines around the world, I would guess mostly laptops that will not run 32 bit Windows 7. I have a very nice, but old IBM thinkpad with XP that works very well. It wouldn’t run “7” it can only hold 2 Gig of ram and “7” drivers could not be found.
I will continue to use this nice little machine occasionally as it runs older peripheral equipment that was expensive and still very serviceable.
So, a deal from Microsoft is no use to me what so ever.
Does anyone else have this scenario?

I do run Windows 7 on 5 machines and yes it’s very good, but I’m not going to scrap a perfectly usable laptop, photo printer and a very expensive scanner that can cope very well with film negatives and slides.

This is what I hope they will have for the non Enterprise edtions for desktop Pcs and laptops:

[B]Windows 9 Enterprise has no Metro interface.

The start menu back.[/B]

Those two things and I would be a very happy camper!!

I will bet though that it will only be the enterpise edtion I never use the metro in windows 8.1 pro it is Just wasted space for me personally running 8.1 on a desktop.

I think the majority of people who still use XP do it because they are content with their hardware/software. Most people could still get by with an XP based computer, if necessary. Hardware capability has far out paced the needs of the average user over the past several years and many have decided to keep using their old machines instead of opting for spending more money on new hardware/software. For these people, the only way they will likely upgrade is when their computer dies or are forced to due to new hardware/software requirements.

I wonder if Microsoft will give a price break to the thousands (maybe millions) of users like me who bought the Win8 Pro Upgrade shortly after it was first available, but never installed it. I have two boxed retail Win8 Pro Upgrades sitting on the shelf unused and I’m still running Win7 Home Premium SP1 on both of my systems. IF the Win9 Upgrade can be bought for as little as $20., I’d probably take a chance on it.

It should be as simple as submitting the Win8 product key to MS to qualify for a reduced price Win9 Upgrade that will update Win7 directly to Win9 without having to install Win8 first. But then, that would be the smart way to market it. If I have to go through the hassle of installing Win8 before upgrading to Win9, they can forget it!

Microsoft has never been customer-friendly, preferring to use their market clout to bludgeon their customers into the “MS way of thinking”, rather than considering what their customers really want and need.

But how many XP users will have hardware capable of running Windows 9?

Or is a new computer part of the offer?

Would be a great way to get rid of all those unsold Surface tablets.

Windows *8 runs just fine on my HP mini 110 with an ATOM @ 1.6, 2Gb of RAM and a 500GB WD blue HDD, so for a system that is made in 2009 or 2010 hardware should not be a problem.

So if M$ can make win9 a little more litter than win8, and also exclude the stupid metro I’ll be more than happy to move to win9, also win+q and who needs the start menu, and thats from someone that hated win8 when they first came out.

However I an understand people that have paid for high end hardware and manufacturers didnt want to give update for win8 so that they can force many user to buy new hardware, those people have every right to stay on XP.

That’s the handicapp not everyone has a 09 or newer can afford a new computer with limited budget. The O/S isn’t cheap to by and you have to upgrade your hardware to work as well and that all cost money. That’s the elephant in the room.

I for one use it for my Desktop/Laptops-no touch screen-so dismissing the Start Menu when it had functionality is the reason W8 is selling so bad and well as other things missing from W7.

No, they just go to Windows 7 or find copies of Windows 7 to install and use. Even Vista with all it’s Service Pack is better then W8.

@coolcolors

The photo on this page is. It from Windows 9 Enterprise! They have not yet released any photos of how Windows 9 Enterprise will look.
That photo is how the start menu will look on the non enterprise Windows 9.

The Windows 8.1 engine is faster and more efficient than Windows 7 and Windows Vista with all it’s service packs. You simply dislike it because it does not have the start menu and have based your decision on this and this alone.
