    Aero looks dated? And Window 8's flat look looks modern? If so, I don't like modern! A Guy

    Hi there

    "Modern" look can be Horrible and cold too -- like those awful Sparse "loft Style" apartments with that dark "metallized / semi brick minimalist" look which is a cross between a typical Moscow sleazy nightclub and a noisy hotel and come with a stratospheric price tag as well - give me a nice cluttered looks lived in place with some Real wooden floors (not that synthetic laminate stuff) and some SOLID real craftsmen produced furniture.

    "Modern" styles have a habit of getting out of date very quickly -- Classic stuff "improves with age". !!!!

    Until something can DECENTLY replace a mouse, keyboard AND monitor (these days I use at least TWO - often three large ones) then a DESKTOP OS will stay around.

    WZOR - often good for leaks / whispers about coming Windows releases implies that W9 might even be here at least in a lab as a POC before the end of the year but might have significant Cloud and subscription stuff in it too. That battle is still going on apparently in Redmond's hallowed halls.

    The generation AFTER the current one might start to tire of mobiles -- so we shall see what they produce - but I can't see the PC going the way of the dodo any time soon.

    Cheers

    Hi

    I'm just hoping for something a little more PC friendly.

    The idea of creating a version of Windows that doesn't have windows was mystifying to me.

    I run multiple applications all the time.

    When I create 3D textures or videos I jump back and forth between applications constantly.

    I work on the texture in Photoshop, then I load the texture on the 3D object, then back to Photoshop etc.

    When I work on print design it's even worse, I jump from Indesign to Photoshop, to Word, to Illustrator, to Windows Explorer and back to Indesign again.

    I use snap to open windows side by side constantly.

    Metro just doesn't do that well.

    Fortunately between Modermix and Classic Shell I can still do that from the desktop.

    The one thing that I'm pretty sure Windows 9 will have is a integrated desktop setup with Windows and a task bar setting for mouse and keyboard users, that still allows for multitasking, and can be booted to by defualt.

    I could use metro if I only emailed, browsed the internet, and typed Word documents, or for gaming.

    But for serious stuff you still need to have "Windows" and a taskbar.

    A "nutshell" statement if ever I saw one. :)

    Very well said, Mike Hawthorne. It just seems to me that what is needed is the options to use the classic desktop environment or Metro. Microsoft, saw it different and decided it wanted everyone to use Metro, like it or not. So, it went from Windows 7 logo 'Windows, your way' to Windows 8, ' Windows our way, like it or lump it'. Just take a guess which OS is more popular.
    I only hope the next Windows allows for options, rather than a cell phone/tablet OS ported to the desktop.
