Windows

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 would tend to agree, except that security is really dodgy on older versions of Windows. Given the state of the security arms race, I would not feel comfortable e.g. making commits to a software development repo from Win2k or XP. Even light use would be a hazard, seeing as some script kiddy could be using your computer to host stuff.
