    5 more killer features Windows 9 should steal from Linux


    If the latest Windows 9 leaks are any indication, some of the operating system's coolest new features will look a lot like what Linux users already enjoy: Like the virtual desktops Linux users have had since the 90’s, and a centralized notification center like the one available in GNOME Shell.

    Windows 9 also looks like it'll co-opt Ubuntu’s vision of a single operating system interface that can run on all form factors, complete with apps that run in windowed mode when it makes more sense to do so. Who would have imagined? Windowed applications are a big new feature in Windows.

    Thanks John a good read. Reminded me that M$ is slower than molasses to update its OS with new ways of doing things like virtual desktops (been around since W95).

    Thanks for the clarification.
    I've tried Linux several times but I just go back to some version of Windows all of the time.
