    I think that's the point - where is the beef.
    For what its worth, if I were to build a new desktop I would happily buy Windows 8 for it over 7. I'd be spending the money anyway so I'd get what I wanted.

    Well I got 8 on my Asus Notebook, upgraded to 8.1, I never missed the Start menu and would rather use the OS as is rather than try to make it look and feel like an old OS.

    I may be a dinosaur but it doesn't mean I have to act like one I'd rather learn about the new technology when it comes out and not get left behind.

    I still use my 7 machine as I haven't transferred everything to 8 yet, if I had I wouldn't still use the 7 machine even though it has a much bigger screen and more comfortable keyboard, that machine is old though as it came with Vista.
    Dito, until recently I was splitting my time between my 8 laptop and 7 desktop. Everything is running 8.1 now. Thank you Microsoft for my MVP and TechNet/MSDN SUB.

    There was no compelling reason that I upgraded from 7 to 8 on my desktop, other than I enjoy playing around with new software and I took advantage of the special introductory price for 8 Pro when it first came out. However, I still run 7 on my laptop and don't plan to upgrade it.

    I am definitely sticking with 7 for a while. When 9 (or whatever it will be called) is released I'll re-evaluate the situation but as far as I'm concerned going from 7 to 8/8.1 is just a waste of money...

    Hi.
    If somebody ask me what I'd like to see in Win 9, it's funny that what had come to my mind was having it like customizable android ROMs which can have various launchers and apps. Just thought of that because it currently my hobby with 4 android devices at hand.
    Just a wild thought, anyway.

    I would like for Microsoft to return to the XP days of being more self-contained... like have it's pieces of software be good enough for people to use without having to seek-out third party stuff. Get some hype back about Windows itself.

    I'm talking stuff like:
    - Windows Photo Viewer (I think this is what it's currently called) doing animated gifs.
    - Windows Movie Maker working great, just with more modern file type compatability or new features like overlaying images on top of the video etc.
    - Windows Defender/Microsoft Security Essentials Suite being good enough to do-away with the need for a naggy third party anti virus program.

    I mean we've finally gotten stuff like the modern 'reader' app on Win8 which means I don't have to fart around with Adobe Reader anymore. I'd just like the Desktop side to be competant as well.

    All that is still available on 8.1. Or am I missing something.

White window frames around every window.
Since 10122 I've noticed that they changed the window frames from using accent colours to just using white all the time. Personally I don't like this and I am wondering if there is a way to bring accent colouring back.
