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.

I recently switched from Win to Linux after a long time of dual-booting, faffing around, etc.

Always preferred Gnome so went with Cinnamon as a good variant. Then tried KDE.

KDE... so beautiful, so sexy. Yet I switched back to Cinnamon after one session.

Win 8.. .or 9... sorry, no way.
