    Windows 9 Preview to Get New Features Based on Users Needs


    Windows 9 Preview is scheduled to be unveiled later this month, and although Microsoft hasn’t provided any details on its feature lineup, reports keep coming to let us have a glimpse into the new options that could be part of this operating system.

    Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley is reporting via unnamed sources that the technical preview of Windows 9 due on September 30 could come with optional monthly updates, which means that not everyone will be forced to install the new improvements released by the company.

    Somehow I am honestly hoping that the Windows Update might get a UI refresh to perhaps bring it closer to the visual feel of the app store. With all the varying features MSFT seems to be working on based on a user's device, it would be very helpful to see screenshots or video previews of the feature offered before you actually choose to install it.

    Or KBxxxxxxx, with the description "adds improvements to Windows 9 PC's for some users".

    I see nothing wrong with having updates titled KBxxxxxxx for power users and then have an actual name, like we see it now in WU; the point is to expand the description of each update, maybe show screenshots and video previews instead of just offering a generic description message like they do it now.

    If there are gonna be many similar features that differ visually and feature-wise according to a user's device, then these updates need to be carefully offered and explained in detail do avoid confusion.

    That works if the click here for more info actually takes you to a working webpage instead of a page not found error. That's not always the case though. Not lately anyway. As long as they put them in the Recommended section it shouldn't be a big deal. That way you can try and figure out what they are before they get installed.

    But that's exactly what I'm saying: why not tweak the UI and show EXACTLY what it is before a user installs it, instead of offering a link to a webpage. Having all the info needed in one place, at one glance sounds much better to me

    I'm staking my claim that not removing Aero iconography and UI elements from the Desktop will utterly hinder any adoption.

    Exactly the opposite, without Aero it is Dead on Arrival and will be hated like Windows 8.x is. It looks sick, flat , boring, non intuitive and difficult to see. They need to return the Aero 3D components and dump the metro ugly colour scheme and design metrics. One word Pathetic. What the hell have they been working on as it does not show?

    Aero has been dead on arrival since 2012 and will continue to be that way for the foreseeable future.

    Like I said on a different thread, Aero is wasteful and in an age where battery operated PCs are the norm, such waste is not tolerable anymore. I wouldn't like my PC to be wasting energy just to display tacky faux design that should have died in 2006 and stayed in 2006.
