    First let me say "Welcome to the Nine Forums". . .
    Second: Is there something I am missing here, didn't know that Nine had been released, so just wondering how it is you know it is awsome. . .

    They need an OS for computers (read desktop and laptop) and a completely separate OS for smaller mobile stuff. Having an abomination of Windows, Android and gaming consoles is absurd.

    And yeah where did you see Windows 9? o_O

    Umm…IOS 8 has not been released. It's suppose to be released this fall? And I believe the current version of Android is 4.4 Kit Kat.

    And I, as well will ask…where did you see Windows 9?

    Ok, what should Windows 9 have?

    1. It should have Windows, the ability to have multiple applications running at the same time is critical for people who really do work on their computers.

    It should have a simple custom start menu that you can add your commonly used software to that doesn't have 50 icons you never use.

    It would be nice if it had a browser that worked.

    Internet Explorer has been unable to open my Comcast home page on both of the Windows 8 computers that I have had, along with some other pages I use.

    If it's going to have a mail app, it should be able to open Pop3 email accounts.
    Windows 8 can't open my Comcast email either.

    It should have a task bar that can be visible or hidden when other software is running.
    I have some programs that need the space at the bottom.

    The way the task bar worked in Windows XP was great.

    Mainly it should run normal software in a normal manner, apps that have only the basic options that don't do much of anything aren't really a lot of help.

    They should have had a separate OS for PCs and touch pads to start with.

    PCs aren't going anyplace anytime soon, I can't run Adobe software like Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, Premiere or games like The Elder Scrolls Online on a touch device.

    I have an iPad, I know what it can do and can't do, and there's a lot it can't do, that I can do on my PC.

    On the other hand I don't carry my desktop around and take pictures with it. LOL

    Hi

    Windows XP had an option that would keep the task bar viable on the desktop but make it stay behind open programs that were running full screen.

    They changed that in Windows 7 to the so that only the hide and peek option was available.

    I have software that has buttons at the very bottom, so when I try and click on them, the task bar pops up and obscures them, it's kind of a problem at times.

    I'd like to see the option to have the task bar stay in the background back.

    For that matter I'd like the programs menu from Windows XP back, I hated the scrolling programs menu in Windows 7 from the start.

    I have over 100 software programs installed (many pieces of software add multiple icons, i.e. uninstall, options etc.) having to scroll through all of them was a real pain.

    I use and have used Classic Shell since Windows 7 came out to fix that.
    I like having an alphabetized start menu with folders.

    I use Rocket Dock for my commonly used software and links, and will probably still do that no matter what version of Windows I run.

    I've used it since Windows 7 came online.

    I used RocketDock on XP Vista and W7. I didn't like Taskbar autohide so I wrote a couple of utilities to set the desktop Work Area with a gap on the Taskbar edge. You may or may not find one of them useful. :) Unfortunately I only had a single monitor setup. No multi-monitor support I'm afraid.

    Hi

    Thanks I'll check it out.

    What I'd like is a utility that just makes the Task bar stay behind open full screen windows when I want it to.
