Ok let’s be honest. Windows 8 was not what we expected it to be. Sure it has its good points but let’s face it. This is nothing short of Microsoft holding true to the belief that it’s only every other version of Windows that’s really any good at all. For myself I would say Windows 7 is my favorite. I have it on several systems now and I am completely happy with it. Shhhh… Don’t tell anyone but I put a Windows 7 Start menu on my Windows 8 Laptop.
Windows 9, codenamed Threshold, is still a good year away or more. With that much time it will be interesting to see what they select from the successes of other past (odd number windows) to include in the new Windows 9. How about we make it a PC OS again? What do you think?
I know that Windows 8 was all about the touch screen and breaking into the tablet market. But forcing that Metro style interface on all the new PC uses was the wrong thing to do. I could also criticize the flat “clean” style but now even Apple is doing it with their latest IOS. The flat look is OK but a drop shadow under my active window would be nice. The fact is you have changed the basic fundamental functionality that so many have come to know and trust. If I have to learn a new OS then why not use UBUNTU get a MAC.
How about better gaming support? With the new Steam Box around the corner and their own OS do we need Windows? With a new OS much like UBUNTU and MINT but now having game support and compatible Office programs a basic user does not need to drink the Microsoft coolaid.
Again, it will be interesting to see what we get in 9.
Make sure that you are careful of what you click on. You could end up taking a wrong turn on the internet. Suddenly you are surrounded by seedy temptations of sex and free money then before you know it you have caught something that is not easy to get rid of.

Do you remember America Online (AOL) in the early days when it was just AOL with a limited connection to the rest of the web? It offered games, chatting and a forum to congregate with your online friends. It was really a single point to communicate with others. But that was not enough was it? We wanted more of the internet and more websites. We did not want to be STUCK in a single system. AOL grew and gave us what we wanted and the World Wide Web was ours for the browsing. We were no longer confined to the chat rooms of AOL and we were free to explore. Today the AOL of the past is gone, a thing of the past in it oh so obsolete way.
So many great websites come and go; each day was a new web adventure. Wow the internet is big and only getting bigger. If only there was a place where we could go online and keep in touch with other, chat or start a group. a single place we could go to do it all…
Well played Facebook! The lemming are ready to receive you now.
Is it just me or does the internet seems to be slowing down? I know that I am on-line all the time but it just seems like there is an increasing slowness on the web. Home and work I feel like I am stuck in slow moving traffic on a single lane road with no way to pass. Someone tell me what is going on.
