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.

Sounds to me more like a combination of Win7 with the classic (read, Win2K) taskbar and XFCE than it does KDE4.

I am a fan of XFCE and use it on my Raspbian installs (Raspberry Pi mostly)... I just can't get into to LXDE.

Interesting. I use LXDE everywhere except my OpenPandora and never gave Xfce a chance because it's designed by people who have no intention of adding support for tabs to Thunar.
