    I am so very interested in seeing a beta of 9. Getting more and more frustrated with 8 each passing day.

    Just curious, but what makes you think that you'll like Windows 9 more than 8? I suspect 9 is going to incorporate many of the same features as 8.

    I suspect that 9 will offer a clear choice, standard desktop environment, or metro. Not really sure if I can endure another round of the nonsense that surrounds 8. Life is just too short to be spending so much time railing against changes to an OS. If they insist on continuing to try to force metro on users, then I will force myself to learn linux, and simply never look back.(while I still have enough remaining gray matter to do so)

    I mean, how hard could it be...???(yea yea, I know... along with what could go wrong; famous last words...)

    Sounds good to me and hopefully Microsoft will see things the same way.

    What do have against Windows 7? If I hated Windows 8 as much as you I would have stayed with 7, until I saw what 9 looks like.

    I find it very hard to resist "upgrading".... even when I know better... although vishta was an exception, avoided that like the plague.

    Plus, there was something about 8 being better suited for my Amd Fx-8150 cpu, though I have no idea whether this was true or not...

    I have both 7 and 8 installed on separate SSD's in my system, but work mostly with 8 nowadays. With the addition of Classic Shell I can't really tell much of a difference between the two. With 8, Defender is integrated into the OS and I don't feel the need to install a separate AV, which is nice. Windows 8 also is more responsive in almost all aspects and has a smaller footprint on my SSD than 7, even with the same programs installed on each. The desktop purists hate the fact that the start menu is not integrated into 8, but I personally don't have any problem with installing something like Classic Shell. I guess its all a matter of "to each his own".

    Well yea, I use Classic Shell too, of course, have done so right from the start.
    It's the principle for which I advocate...

    A fair number of people agree with you and that's fine. But what I don't get is trashing Windows 8 as a viable OS, just because it doesn't have the old start menu. Like I mentioned before, Windows 8 works well for me and I have found it to be very stable, even more so than Windows 7.

Word Preview docx format doesn't interoperate with Word 2007?
I just installed the Word Preview app from the store - it's fairly usable, but... when you open an existing docx file, it claims it is in an old file format, offers to save a copy in the newer format, or loads the file read-only. So it saves a copy...
