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 don't understand this need to but useful information on *the desktop*. When am i going to seer that? Once when I start? Yeah, *that* is awesome.

That's what I've been saying about the Start Screen in Windows 8, myself; the only times I'd ever see anything there is when I boot the PC or when I launch an application. On the desktop I'd see it even less time since, well, I always have something running on top of it.
