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 don't really understand the rage of current Windows users about new UI. I mean, it's Microsoft's system, they can do whatever they want with it and they have the right to do it. If they smell a better profit in selling the system to a computer non-literate, than to You, power user, then why shouldn't they do it?

Because they respect your work habits?

This sounds plain stupid to me. Everyone has different habits. It's very logical they go to the largest similar pool of habits. If you're not matching this criteria, you're left out. Raging about the need for the change is only expressing your inability to adapt to different environment. I bet there are people on this planet who think CP/M was a pinnacle of usability and UI design. How is that different for current love for superiority of Win95-like design?
