Manual window management is awful. Windows 8 ditched windows in favor of fullscreen apps. Traditional desktop window paradigms are powerful but obsolete.

Windows 9 unifies previous contrasting paradigms, taking design cues from all platforms and recent innovations.

Just an unofficial design concept, but damn, this is sexy. This is exactly what Windows needs - a combination of the old and new, leading to something seemingly far more usable than the monstrosity that is Metro in Windows 8.

Win2k is still my favorite version of NT. Sadly quite obsolete now, but its interface is just perfect - it has everything I need, where I need it, and nothing I don't.

Windows 7 with the "classic" desktop comes pretty close though, despite the extra bells and whistles... Shame I'm incurably hooked on Linux at this point.
