    Windows 9 is expected to launch in early 2015, but according to some new details, the company might actually complete the development process as soon as this year.

    Citing information provided by Windows leaker WZOR, Win8China is reporting that Windows 9 is scheduled to reach RTM in October 2014, which means that leaked copies could reach the web by the end of the year.

    That’s obviously good news for Microsoft enthusiasts who hope to get their hands on the next Windows version as soon as possible, even though a new update for Windows 8.1 is projected to go live this April.

    I personally have no interest in any type of cloud OS. It just doesn't fit in with what I want to do on a PC. It will be interesting to see what comes with (or doesn't come with) Windows 9.

    The problem I'm seeing with yearly releases of Windows is this: people still freak out about upgrading Windows because it seems too "technical." It's a pain the crotch to be upgrading and reinstalling Windows every year. Upgrading is still too murky to do as many here can attest to, and doing a clean install is a tedious process.

    Besides, the average person isn't keen on doing so for some reason yet anyone with an iphone doesn't even flinch at updating to the latest release of ios with or without bugs. When it's Windows, there is ALWAYS hesitation.

    Well my upgrades from 7 to 8.1 on one of the laptops and one of the deskys went as smooth as, but I reckon we hear more of the horror stories than we do the good ones because simply there has been no problems.
    All the same I wish they wouldn't keep switching it about so often it does get rather monotonous.

    I think a lot of problems stem from updating. A clean install of the new OS is less problematic. A Guy

    I'll take a clean install over an in place upgrade any day of the week. The problem is even if you want to do that, and know how, you can face one big road block, namely install media. If you have a PC with Windows 8/8.1 pre installed by manufacturer you don't usually have any disks and the best you can hope for is to make recovery media. Microsoft won't sell you just the DVD, and the only legit download around from them requires a Retail key to get the files. If your OEM PC came with Windows 8 your stuck with refreshing 8 and updating to 8.1 though the store. Not an ideal situation if you ask me. If the store update has issues then it's a wash, rinse, and repeat, type of scenario until you get it right. The hidden OEM embedded keys add another wrinkle to it to. They are not making it easy for the average Joe to do it so it shouldn't be a big surprise when you see people being reluctant to try it.
