    Oh, I can find more things to complain about but one thing at a time. For example, I don't like them putting those Metro tiles on the right-hand side of the Start menu.

    They called it 10 because they didn't want 7 to eat 9 like in the joke.

    It looks like Windows has a team which cares about attention to detail, finally! I think this will be the best version of Windows yet .. way better than Windows 7 was in its time. Of course they can manage to F it up but I'll be optimistic for now :p

    I think you're referring to the task view for transparency? The theme will be changed for sure, I don't think they will keep 8's half baked theme as it is for RTM. We should see it by the time they're ready to show off the consumer oriented features.

    What about the passionate followers of Windows 98SE?
    Aren't their interests being taken into consideration? ;)

    Thanks a lot.
    Downloading.
    I'm gonna see if it's worth upgrading from 7, looks promising. I just don't know why they get rid of transparent windows, really liked them in Win 7, you could think that with Win 8 it was too demanding for tablets and they wanted one look on all devices and I know they're still after that, but c'mon, let desktop users decide.

    It comes with GeForrce 340.52 installed so we might be able to install Windows 8 drivers. I checked Windows Update but there were no new drivers avalable.

    Okay so the real Windows 9 will be Windows 11 or 12 since this is pretty much Windows 8 still.

    Which is why they should just switch to a biannual release cycle and a different naming scheme. People are expecting huge changes from OS upgrades, not going to happen anymore.

    Class A fanboy..

    The world has changed, windows is only the dominant OS on the desktop, most of the world doesnt bother with a desktop anymore. If you look at TOTAL OS share instead of blinding yourself with the desktop you will already realise Windows is at less than 25%

    I for one, welcome any new windows software. More performance, more features, more optimization. Good for old hardware, good for new hardware. I'm running an old Athlon 4800+ with overclocked DDR2 and a flashed HD 3850 in my room. The idea that it can still run new games is kinda mind-boggling and keeps my faith in desktops.

    All ye plebians... worship the AsrockAspire.
