I had even tweaked my Windows 7 to show the sidebar.

    Yep the sidebar in Vista was very useful especially with wide screen monitors, It's such a shame they killed it off as I never found any other product that worked as well.

    Well, if you have a wide enough monitor, you can use Metro for a sidebar...

    Dual boot Windows 10 FCU Pro x 64 & current Insider 10 Pro

    I think MS will develop ways to slay the “two-headed dragon” of 8.x. Here’s one thing interesting that they’re working on, although it pertains to the Start Screen, but includes the desktop:

    Interactive Windows Live Tiles shown off, could it be a part of Windows 9?

    We know that marriage of the desktop and Store apps now exists via snapping as you show, Mystere, except it’s limited to one Store app. Perhaps multi-windowing the Store apps will solve that problem so as to stack Store app windows on top of one another. That way one could have something similar to Gadgets, as you show in your screenshot. The next problem would be to store the configuration of stacked desired apps so to open at will. I always thought it to be a good idea to save multiple desktops with frequently used programs with different tasks one needs to perform so as to open at will. I know one can configure 1 so to open at boot.
