    Windows 9 Screenshots Leaked


    Windows 9 Preview will be released for download later this month, but the very first screenshots showing the upcoming build in action are already here.

    As you can see for yourselves by browsing the screenshots in the gallery, the preview build of Windows 9 indeed includes many of the rumored features, among which a notification center and multiple desktops.

    German site computerbase.de has published the screenshots earlier today, claiming that they are part of Windows 9 Technical Preview build 9834.

    interesting to see that charms are still shown as an option, and the taskbar preferences have the tick to go to desktop at startup, looks promising for the start screen to remain as now

    I do find though that the store apps running on the desktop look quite ugly

    early days yet so more changes to come

    Pity if these screenshots will end up being the real thing - they are as flat and boring as Win 8. One should not underestimate the importance of the eye-candy.

    Nice find! Looks legitimate to me. It generally has the look of Windows 8 but with the Metro reined in.

    I would like a button which turns off all Metro links and images so in the end we are left with just an improved Windows 7.

    With Windows 8 Microsoft just pushed all that Metro stuff in our face and I have developed a bad attitude towards it.

    yes it does look a bit flat, I want some depth, some 3d'ness to the whole thing.

    to be fair its very early days yet, and maybe its toned down to run the 64bit on the 1gb of ram it shows in one of the pictures.

    it needs to be more, a lot more really, most of what has been promised or shown as yet could easily be done to win 8 with a new service pack, all we have been offered as of yet is a re-shuffle of the layout, we need to know whats under the hood so to speak.

    This is exactly what I've been thinking as soon as I went through all those screenshots. It looks nice, sure, but is that all? I know Windows will get improved over the next 6 months or so, but were they so happy with Windows 8/8.1 that they want to keep things almost the same with bunch of minor updates and few new things? I don't see how this will make people with 8.1 eager to pay (if they'll have to, which I honestly think they will) for a new copy of Windows, unless there's more to it; for example, Win 9 being the final Windows version for some time which will be upgraded every quarter or something.

    I was so excited to give new Windows a try, but unless there's a huge performance boost (how big can it be anyway compared to 7/8.1?), I don't think it's worth messing around with Technical Preview right now.

    problem is i want it both ways, metro is great on my tablets with its big chunky and finger friendly tiles, you see i have a few tablets and 2 desktops, one tablet is the dell xps 18, great on the table as a pc and i love the fact i can grab it and use it anywhere as a tablet, also i have an 8 inch windows tablet so i need to be able to choose tablet mode or desktop mode depending on how i am using and what i am using.

    fine, make win9 like windows 7, but give me and others a choice to still use metro, wouldn't it be ironic if after all the metro hate, windows 9 users had to go to classic shell to be able to bring it all back lol.

    Aaaaaaaandd we're back to drop down menus in Windows 9.... sigh...

    But on the plus side, is that a new File Explorer icon that isn't Aero styled but metro styled? YES!!

    (this is where dancing elephants would dance)

    This is quite interesting and can't wait to see how the mini Start Screen can be used. I swear, if you'll be able to basically cover the whole screen in tiles and still have a start menu still showing.... Oh my gosh. I wonder what would have happened if only Microsoft actually added Desktop tiles from File Explorer and such onto the Start Screen from the get-go.

    The "flatness" is the secret to being "fast".
    Any eye candy feature will greatly affect it's performance.

    I like it flat. I like it fast.

    I just hope Classic Shell will come up with something new.
