Rumors Around Windows 9 Rumors Around Windows 9

Periodically, Microsoft releases fresher versions of the Windows OS, trying to add some new functionality. Unfortunately, not all of the “experiments” had equal success in masses. Windows ME, Windows Vista, and Windows 8 were less welcomed by the customers than expected while Windows XP and Windows 7 proved to be rather profitable. A lot of people have their PCs running the latter two and do not want to migrate to W8. At the same time, we can find a positive tendency: Windows 9 can be predicted to turn out a good one after the W8 failure, but the work to be carried out is impressive (as it was with Windows Vista and Windows 7).

It is hard to foresee when the new operating system will be released (rumors say the stable version is coming this fall) or what it will feature, but there exist some expectations upon that. When Windows 8 came out with its Metro-style interface, we missed the classic Start Button, were not completely pleased with the way the applications could be accessed and found some other minor things, which each of us classified as not-so-comfortable ones. All these merged into a “wish” list for the upcoming Windows 9. Here are some points from it.

First of all, the above mentioned Start Button. When Windows 8 came out, a lot of third-party add-ons appeared which were said to bring back the old-style menu. It would be a release to officially have that functionality back. The habit to use that was drilled by years and years with older versions of the OS, why not to return it?

Secondly, not all screens equally welcome the Metro style. Large displays make the tiles look ridiculous: too colorful and enormous. It would be great if something could be done about that, at least the possibility to manage that manually.

One more thing to mention are the Gadgets, which were very useful, though said to be not very safe. The calendar and CPU meter were welcomed on the desktop, providing the information of interest right before your eyes.

Of course, the desires are far more than those enumerated here, and the Internet is full of them, including the long promised higher battery life and awaited gesture control, but not all of them are to become true. Like it was with the previous Windows releases when not all officially enumerated features saw the life. Besides, the official media is quiet upon the issue, so it is wise to wait until the official announcement is made in order not to get disappointed with the result.

What do you personally expect of Windows 9?

The ability to use an old program that came out around Windows 95 and 98 eras that were 16-bit written, because I've noticed that this facility is not enabled in Windows 8, and that when I installed such a program, it asked me that this "should" be activated to continue.
I also feel this built-in "invisible" facility could be improved, but not removed.

It would be great if it would run smoothly like XP did - I still love that OS Smile
What I would like is to be able to upgrade and not lose my downloaded programs, etc.
I also have a moan about the way Microsoft demand my personal details or they will shut down my Windows OS. It appears that they are acting as if they OWN my pc but I pay for it and the OS, the same as I pay for groceries. Surely I have a right to do what I want with it, for instance, have two different OS systems running in partitions so that I can play games that used to run OK in XP. Why am I not allowed to do this? Why can't I do what I want with my own property? Windows compatibility in Win8 did not fix my problem with running older games than could run just fine in XP.
From what I hear, 47% of OS users out there still use XP, so why are Microsoft being so hardheaded about this? The only reason we stick with XP is because it does what we want it to without problems. It is a real good OS and it is a downright shame that people are being forced to upgrade - which means we lose all our downloaded programs, etc., as they will not be transferrable to Win 8 or Win 9.

Something I've been wanting for 10 years; an artificial interactive intelligence, allowing users to have a better experience with voice recognition, more realistic text to speech reproduction, making the interface from user to machine intuitively more productive. (i.e., audibly answering math questions, looking up reference terms in an existing database and when it's not there, automatically searching the net for the answer, presenting them when found, also asking if the results should be added to the existing database or not). I think that would be really cool. I'm not talking about a "Her" which was ridiculous, I might add. Just something to make the experience more hands free. I did like how the email could be sorted from that previous example, that was a great idea. If such coolness is already out there, why is it not popular enough for me to know about it? Anyway, it would be nice and a welcomed change. I don't currently expect anything of Windows 9, though. It would be better to see an actual list of frequently similar feedback from Windows 8 users, so we have a better idea of what to expect, rather than speculating what was desired, but left out.

1. Freedom to install, uninstall, reinstall and fix YOUR Windows operating system to any PC and any hard drive without limitations and bound to hardware, without control from Microsoft.
2. For it, to do any real improvements to Windows possible, for make Windows usable, flexible and viable, Microsoft must totally change its way of thinking: Now you must buy and pay Windows and still Microsoft behaves as the owner of YOUR OWN Windows. It's criminal. Never more accept it!
3. Stop splitting hard drive automatically to partitions: The "System Reserved" small partition, 100 MB, on C-drive for BitLocker is ridiculous and prevents Windows 7 and 8 backup work when there is no more free space and you cannot make it free and cannot expand the partition without destroying your system and building it up again.

You must not have much experience in such things. You are seriously complaining about 100MB? I don't even use that partition for backup. On top of that, try out Apple OS, especially their iOS systems and actually try it outside of a simple home environment. Then complain about flexibility.
