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.

Yes, 'easy'-lovers are more in numbers, but that doesn't mean powerful is outdated.

Actually, powerful is outdated. The industry has made it loud and clear that if you use more than a handful of the most basic features, you're a minority and don't matter anymore. This is called the war on power users.

Eventually, the only power users left will be programmers as well.
