Microsoft Will Try To Put Windows 8 In Its Rear-View Mirror.
I guess Microsoft will be making Windows 8 the new Windows Vista as it tries to replace it with Windows 9 (code name "Threshold"), supposedly in early 2015.
No surprise there since the Windows 8 UI failed to attract most traditional non-touch screen desktop owners (and that's a huge number of computers). It seems like the rejection of Windows 8 in most part is do to consumers not ready to turn their traditional desktop computers into a smartphone/tablet type of device.
I can see how for those with non-touch screen desktop/laptop computers, Windows 8 can seem a bit odd and not like their traditional Windows experience. Microsoft trying to turn Windows desktop computers into some kind of big Windows Phone has obviously not been a big hit.I previously wrote about Threshold in Microsoft to Take Windows to the "Threshold", Further Changes Coming in Windows "Threshold" and Big Changes Are Coming to Windows. This is the release my sources previously pegged as being the one that will see the return of the Start menu and the ability to run Metro-style apps on the desktop alongside desktop applications.But Threshold is more important than any specific updates. Windows 8 is tanking harder than Microsoft is comfortable discussing in public, and the latest release, Windows 8.1, which is a substantial and free upgrade with major improvements over the original release, is in use on less than 25 million PCs at the moment. That's a disaster, and Threshold needs to strike a better balance between meeting the needs of over a billion traditional PC users while enticing users to adopt this new Windows on new types of personal computing devices. In short, it needs to be everything that Windows 8 is not.
What do you think, can Microsoft turn their Windows woes around fast enough or is it all continuously down hill from here? I myself can't wait for the WinAndroid dual booting computers-tablets like Asus is starting to manufacture.More info: http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/threshold-be-called-windows-9-ship-april-2015Asus native dual-boot WinAndroid OS laptop-tablet: ASUS Transformer Book Duet hands-on at CES 2014 | Engadget
