The first part sounds to me like they're just getting rid of features.

The second part is something that will never happen - ever.

Metro killed Windows and MS knows it. So they will most likely be going back to the original way of things.

Windows 9 should just be Windows 8.1 with a start menu by default, booting to desktop by default and the rest the same. I don't mind metro apps though. But I also don't get why they would fix something that ain't broke.

brings back the classic Windows work environment ... with a prettier UI than Win7


Given that I always set Windows 7 to the "Classic" theme this might not be my area of expertise, but why would anyone want a UI "prettier" than the default UI for Windows 7? I mean I want functional, easy to use, non-intrusive, and as lacking in frustration as possible. "Pretty" would likely violate at least one of those.

Oh and HL3 exlusive to windows steam.....lol ok that is a bit much.



Fat chance (no pun intended). I'd find it more believable for HL3 to be Steam OS exclusive.

It would be great but i can't see it. I have a bad feeling windows 9 will look even less like the classic windows PC users want.

Why can't Windows tablet just be a different OS, and allow PC to have its own PC OS. I don't want to turn my desktop into a tablet.
