Windows 8 'Threshold' update will be Windows 9

I have an HP Dv7 running 8.1, No touch screen, Classic Shell installed. I never use Metro. I like 8.1 tho which is just 7 with a different UI. All you morons going on about "touch screen is great" bla bla bla.. Have a think about how many businesses you know worldwide that run MS OS that rushed out to replace all their pc's with touch screens or spent $1000's on having their staff retrained to use 8/8.1 (Not many!!!) ...and thats where Microsoft stuffed up and wondered why their sales were crap compared to previous OS releases. Don't get me wrong metro is a good UI for touch screens & tablets but an uneconomical/unnecesary upgrade for 75% of the worlds PC's running windows.

If Microsoft does things right you would have an easy option to let you pick the interface you want to use in Win 10. E.G. Win 8.1 (or) Win 7 (or) another style. It should never be to only use one style but give the user the choice on which one they want....

@Dave E - Your 100% right on with your post.
Those who like Win 8/8.1??? Not sure I have ever heard anyone boasting about it other then Microsoft Employees. Where do you start anything in Windows?? At "START" the way it was until Win 8. The Win 8 funky START page has all icons looking alike where you can't glance and find it quickly but have to read the words in it which are small to me. I definitely HATE Win 8 Start Menu and think they tried to make look like a MAC interface. BAD MOVE. I have a Mac and use it some and the one thing I wish it had was a simple START button and menu like Win 7 down to XP has. Even the Mac Start (default screen) is better then Win 8/8.1.

I do like the design or the Microsoft Surface Pro (have one) where it's normally a desktop (using big LED display) where I can pull 3 cables and it's a tablet or a laptop if I add a keyboard and maybe a mouse if I need more control then the touch screen allows... I think the hardware concept is great but Microsoft needs to let the user pick which kind of interface they want to use (and always keep the Win 7 interface until almost everyone stops using it) and make the Win 8.1 interface available to those that want it. Just one more item in the Control Panel allowing the user to switch between them. Maybe also allow a user the ability to create their own start menu style giving then 3, 4 or more options..

Syncables 360 Premium review

9 comments, most recent: GuyNorthrup said on 27 July 2010: "To me, syncing multiple computers in a network automatically is the core benefit of using Syncables360. Having valuable files & spreadsheets (emails too actually) always in sync on more than 1 computer provides an additional layer of security back up too. Even though I trust this more than using the limited storage space in the cloud, I view it is a secondary feature. Inexpensive, fun, & reliable."

Microsoft Security Essentials review

3 comments, most recent: exbrum said on 11 July 2010: "If I could get the auto update function to work then I would have been quite happy to stay with this, I read a couple of good reviews on two magazine sites, however decided to uninstall it and go for another free anti virus programme. The overall layout of the interface is very nice and well thought out."

Serif WebPlus X2 review

0 comments, most recent: The B said on 22 May 2010: "There are two questions I would ask before buying this: Is it better than Microsoft? And how much better? Yes - it is, in my opinion, better than Microsoft. And it's a lot better: it's so easy to create professional publications. Some things to be improved on, but all in all a very good program."
