    The real question is whether W9 will still be like W8, or if it will get back on track. Otherwise, a rose is a rose is a rose.

    Well one can hope Microsoft would do a better job next round, sure I am not saying I like Microsoft here (knowing my rep as the crazy linux guy) but one also hopes that Microsoft learned something about how to do a mobile interface and not have it interfere with the desktop user experience.
    I understand the rationale behind 8 but it was totally the wrong approach, for 9 they should take a look as what both apple and Ubuntu have done in their ventures to bridge the mobile and desktop interfaces.
    Though calling it threshold makes me as a Star trek fan giggle like a schoolgirl.
