    I am hoping Windows 9 will come in a Desktop flavour as well as for Tablets
    Or have something switchable... kinda like switching between mate, cinnamon, gnome, etc.

    So... same start-up for all, then at the log-in page one could choose between mobile, tablet, desktop.

    I believe the best we can hope for is that MS continues to leave the ability to "hack" their OS to modify it to work more like we'd like, as is happening with 8 and 8.1.
    Right now I am running Classic Shell on my 8.1 desktop and am happy with it, so if I can continue to do that on future releases, I could live with it.

    I went for the Modern screen as my start menu. Less clicks. I recently tried the classic again, in order to help someone with a problem, and found it got in my way. Personal choice, I guess

    Personal choice, isn't that great.
    Microsoft just has to remember that is what customers want, personal choice.

    I'm happy with 8.2 and actually don't miss the classic start menu. I know people that would though, so having it available as an option would be a good move on Microsoft's part. I'd be surprised if they let you completely hide Metro though. It's likely that the taskbar desktop Start Orb will be able to launch the classic start menu. Metro will be just sitting in the background waiting to pounce. We'll all have to wait and see though.

    I think MS will give the option to the user, they are already thinking how to get people off of Win7 onto Win8, by the time Win9 comes out.
    They don't want to keep supporting it.

    Hi everyone, glad to be here.

    Btw, why am I still thinking that behind all the things, MS is going to drive the customer to the path they want it to be? Though Win 8 or 8.1 don't give them much as expected.

Windows 10 Release Date
Does anyone here believe that Windows 10 will be very likely to come out in June 2015 or is that wishful thinking? I want it now so badly but I would hate to have to wait until September or even July or August. Microsoft needs to speed things...
