    And yep, Aero iconography is being tossed into the Recycle Bin!! In the last few seconds, you see the new (I assume) This PC icon and File Explorer metro styled icons. YES!

    I will be upgrading. Been waiting for this for literally three years.

    It will not sell if it does not offer Aero as I and others will not be paying good money for it. I was correct that Vista would be a flop, correct about 7 and I was also correct about 8. They are forcing this (insert worthless Deity here) awful ecosystem on us. There is a lot to be said for 3 D graphic and usability due to being able to see menus clearly instead of the flat boring look. Metro and the "new look sucks the big one"
    Glad you like it both of you. Well that is 2 upgraders.

    You may be right about it not selling it might be FREE. LOL

I'd rather have the rest of the UI, the WHOLE UI, be my eye candy, not shiny window borders and glossy drop shadows. It was designed in 2006 and should stay in 2006.
    Just say what you feel Mr Robot. So you are just going to throw away a proven system for the metro-puke-ation of the desktop. I use my machines for all sorts of tasks and if I wanted this kind of crap I would sell my 7 PC's I built and buy a MAC. It may have been designed in the early 2000's but the hardware only arrived to run it without any overheads in the 2010's.
    I don't see the new UI as eyecandy, it looks flat, sick, and awful colours. I am not sure how old you are but some of us do not have such good eyes any more so everything the OS does to make things visible is good.
    If M$ wants to sell this polished up turd of an OS it better have some choices and one of them can be the mode on display and another should be an aero mode.

    Windows 9 leak shows how to make the Start menu look like Windows 7

    The Start menu is likely to be the highlight for many users of Windows 9. While it went away in Windows 8, the feature is making a triumphant return in Windows 9 and now we have a second look at the menu.

    One thing is clear, this build will likely leak in the near future as it is now outside the hands of Microsoft and partners clearly have no issue with handing over the bits to the blogs. Posted below, we have a second video that shows off the Start menu but this time, we can see what happens if you remove all of the Modern apps.

    I don't care about Aero (I disabled it on Win 7 and using Basic Theme) or eye candy stuff. That's cosmetics. I just want a plain start menu and faster OS. Those cosmetics can be done by anyone based on their preference. Eye candy stuffs should just be an option. It has nothing to do with performance (actually it just degrades performance if the system has to worry about rendering those eye candy crap).

    Well if it was free I would upgrade my 3 Windows 8.1 pro to the new system but Windows 7 would stay. I only ever boot to 8.1 to run the updates....oh that reminds me my other machines 8.1 needs Septembers updates......

    Also if it was just the next update to 8.1 (which I believe it was and was pulled at the last moment) then it is an evolutionary product but they do not seem to have learnt anything from the past. If we do not learn from the past we are doomed to make the same mistakes again....Active Desktop...Channels...Bob.....Metro......all failed and loathed by the public.

    Well, FWIW,... You can likely add me as an upgrader.

    Now that makes 3.
