    What happened to 9?

    Anyway, I hope this one will be better than W8/W8.1.

    Bad omen? Only the uneven numbers were good Windows versions in the past, so I had opes for 9 being the actualy successor of Windows 7. But now we may get an successor of Windows 8...ewww...

    I don't know.  Overall, I think many of the changes done are a good idea.  I'll need to mess with the preview when it comes out tomorrow. 

    For those that are curious, the sign up page (open tomorrow from what I heard) is preview.windows.com

    I'm in a happy place staying away from Windows for so many years.. when someone asks me if I know how to fix a random Windows issue I just say.. "Well I haven't really used Windows in years and not sure I can help you, but maybe someone else here in the office could help you."

    Windows huh? Can't say i have the tolerance for using it, let alone willingly. I wonder if people will ever move on to better options.

    As soon as all PC games run faster under Linux than they even did under windows, I'm sure alot of people will switch over. :)   Rest are Office Users that has to be convinced to use Open/Libre Office, should be doable.  Yes, Windows is mostly Office and gaming imho.  :D

    Is Windows 10 Linux?

    Anyway, since I've purchased the Pandora, I've tried to learn Linux and now all my computers at home are Linux.  The only place I am forced to used Windows is at my work.  Fuck that shit.  I tried to stay away from it as much as I can.  I recently got Citrix work on the OpenPandora and it works so nicely that I don't have to use my Windows computer at work any more.

    @Fusion_Power: There's also all of those people who don't really care and just keep using whaterver OS their PC ships with.

    I imagine they would probably rather switch to Tablets before bothring to try anything else.

    Tell me what Windows XP did any better than 2000 except add extra useless bloat.

    Well that's the thing, 2000 was originally marketed to business uses only as it was based off Windows NT and was intended as a successor to it.  However at the time they were trying to sell a huge hunk of crap to the home market (Windows ME ). Microsoft most likely didn't expect the huge amount of home users buying windows 2000 especially gamers.. If the popularity of Windows 2000 didn't get noticed, Windows XP could have been based off of ME and it would of been even more horrendous.  So thank the people that bought windows 2000..
