    So, I have just been reading that Microsoft will be having a developers conference this April to discuss the next Windows coming out, expecting this to be called Windows 9 to carry on the last couple of versions namesakes.

    What are your thoughts on this? What changes would you like to see?

    Proper start menu would be nice.

    That dream will go up in smoke fast I think.

    Funnily enough I don't miss the start bar. Or anything about older versions of Windows. I really quite like Windows 8. The only thing that annoys me is the odd bugs and occasional compatibility issues with the preloaded metro apps. I solve that by not using them!

    Id be inclined to agree Arroryn. It took a while but I now prefer it, when it works. And it works more and more often now.

    I think with Windows 9 it would be nice to shake off the "split personality" feel that 8 still has, though. But if they're ever going to go full Metro they'll need to put a lot of effort into making sure the apps are reliable.
