New Windows 9 Details Leak  

    Posted: 23 Jun 2014
    Windows 9 is expected to be the next full Windows version prepared by Microsoft and although the company has until now remained tight-lipped on what's to come as part of this release, plenty of details have surfaced via unofficial channels.

    A new report posted by Microsoft News and citing information provided by Faikee, a Twitter user who has a good track on leaked Windows details, reveals that Windows 9 might after all arrive in Q2 or Q3 2015, which more or less confirms previous speculation pointing to an April 2015 launch date.
    Recent rumors also suggested that Microsoft might after all give users the option to disable Metro completely in Windows 9 Enterprise, thus sticking on the classic desktop interface that made so many people love this particular operating system

    Why just give Enterprise users the option to turn off Metro? If they want Windows 9 to be a huge success, then they should have that option for all versions IMHO.

    Agreed, but to be fair with the installation of Start8 I never see the Metro UI on W8.1. As long as there's an option to cut the Start screen off by other means I don't really care what MS do.

    Does Start8 disable Metro completely? If not, then being able to do it upon installation would be better IMHO.

    I use Start8 and the only way I can get to the Metro desktop is by pressing Windows key + C or select Windows 8 Menu from the Start8 Start Menu.

    I can't use any Metro apps because I have UAC completely disabled.

    Yea, if I could completely eliminated all traces of metro during installation I would prefer to do so.
