Two changes supposedly coming to the next version of Windows, according to veteran Paul Thurrott:

Metro apps running in windows on the desktop. As you can today with third-party utilities such as ModernMix, the next version of Windows will let users optionally run Metro apps in floating windows on the desktop.

Start menu. After bringing back the Start button in Windows 8.1, Microsoft will take the next logical step in the next Windows version and make the Start menu available as an option. It's possible this will appear only on those product versions that support the desktop.

This would be Microsoft admitting they got Windows 8 all wrong.

Yeah, you're definitely over compensating now. I'd wager your "career" is failing and you're little more than an opinionated 1st line support officer who thinks the world owes him a break while simultaneously wasting most of your working life dossing on message boards telling everyone how important you are.

Most sane people respect others opinions - just like I have yours. But you need a serious chip on your shoulder to be carrying on the way you are just because I happen to dislike your precious ribbon bar. I mean seriously dude, grow the fuck up.

I expect you'll use your multiple fake accounts on here to down vote me - and I'm certain that's what you're doing because no sane person would have read through the numerous pages of our exchanges and not have lost the will to live before now. But honestly, I think this post deserves down voting anyway.
