A Taiwan MS guy said something about win9, it's not much,

http://bbs.pcbeta.co...227974-1-1.html

Translation: Current build he got in his office is a alpha, build No. 9622

There's only some difference in the kernel, the general UI is still win8, which is expected to remain, and the desktop UI would become flatter, so there shouldn't be aero-glass coming back.


The guy added in a a later post, the kernel is expected to be 6.3.

Google translate does a decent job for anyone who wants to read it.
I read it, could it be true? I mean they would really have a windows 9 started already!? win8 is just out.

Someone said in a later post "He is a Microsoft official. . ." Regarding to the OP I think

Of course they are working on Win9 already - or at least something that will in some way become win 9, and 10, and 11. Why does this always surprise people? It won't be anything exciting to see!

It's entirely possible that they are working on Windows 9 now, but I wouldn't bother taking any of this information as fact. There is plenty of time for Microsoft to completely change everything if they wanted.

Key word here "ALPHA", hence, that build is just a design study

It takes a LONG time (many man-hours) to write and test an OS this complex. The design phase would have been underway for a while now.

They better not cave to the clueless and put the start button back, or if they do make it not on by default.

I think "caving to the clueless" is a bit strong, but I agree that now that Micrsoft have chosen to lose it they should stick to their guns. There are plenty of 3rd party solutions for those of us that use the Start Menu.

Demanding that they don't put back a feature that a lot of people clearly want judging by the sales of start menu replacements just to satisfy you, who is the clueless one here?

The whole reason MS implemented Win 8 Metro style is to cater to the growing number of attention deficit children and adults. Large pictures/tiles of your apps, some of them changing real time just to keep your attention on the screen.

When it comes to productivity and efficiency... Win 8 is a whole different story....

yep if they put it back in, it might look like an admission that there was a problem for the start screen for "Most" users.
