So does this mean we will go back to using dumb terminals and all controls will be held by M$? You got to be kidding.

Here’s something that tells M$ and the new head hasn’t learned anything…or listened to anyone…

Windows 9 should contain a start button as well and according to WZOR it will be a component of a next generation of the Metro interface.

Besides Windows 9 Microsoft is also working on Windows Cloud. According to WZOR there is a group working on a prototype operating system where the client software will be free to download and [B]additional functionality requires a subscription[/B].
This is sounding suspiciously like trusted/treacherous computing. Microsoft seems to be aiming for maximum control over its customers’ computers. Next they’ll be saying that downloading third-party (ie those not made by Microsoft) programs is dangerous/wrong because they [I]might[/I] contain malware, or they [I]might[/I] be tools meant for “piracy”. That’s what Microsoft will say about Libre/Open Office.

This reminds me of an amusing cartoon I once found depicting a Microsoft employee who came up with an idea: “It’s a brand new concept, sir. Rather than designing programs based on what users want, we can design users based on what the programs want.”
