    Windows 8.1 Update 1 is expected to be the next big thing for Windows users, as it comes to address many of users complaints in Windows 8.1, while also boosting performance and reliability.

    Windows 9, on the other hand, is supposed to play a much more important role, especially because Microsoft’s future is said to depend on how well this operating system is going to perform.

    H'mmm, I wonder how much of a performance boost I will actually get, since I have 8.1 installed on an SSD and at least in my case, reliability has been good.

    I have used SSDs for years when they came out in a size that would support the OS. The only improvement that Windows 8.x brought to the table was the stripping out Areo thus the speed improvement, I had it turned off in W7 do not care for the eye candy on the OS.

    As to Microsoft and OS 9 it will be taking a back sit to Apple this year (MO), and the reason being is either at the end of this year or sometime in 2015 they will be putting out a new OS. Since OS X has reached the 10.9 stage it will be interesting to see if they move to a whole new OS; perhaps OS XI, or continue on with OS X (OS X 10.10). The big question here is in what direction will the OS take it users. They already use the Launch Pad (similar to Win 8.1 Start Screen for launching Programs/App, and they have the Dock (no Start Menu), so it will be interesting to see what direction they are going to take.

    Yep, I'm one of them! I spend too much time sitting in front of my machine for my view to be boring. I spent a lot of money for a powerful machine and don't care one bit for the "extra" power it takes to run aero.

    What ever happened to Bow Wow Wow anyway?

    The Aero thing and eye candy is all relative as if you have a older slower machine it may use close to 20% of your system resources thus very noticeably slowing things down and making you want to turn it off.
    However, if you have a newer, more powerful machine then it may only represent a 5% reduction in system resources and that is where I agree it well worth the expenditure.
    The features that comes with Aero that I tend to use a lot is the Peak, snap, View, and a few others.

    How so? Microsoft is still doing pretty damn good. They are still the #1 OS company in the world as well as the #1 Office software provider in the world.
