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.

I work in Gibraltar in the gaming sector. I doubt it is particularly difficult to find out who I am and what I do from the information I have given on this website and a bit of Googling.

In previous comments when you have got upset you have resorted to saying I am some sort of dead end job or such other rubbish.

I think to be perfectly honest you are trying to project your own person feeling onto me.

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.

No you didn't respect mine, you called me a Microsoft loving idiot on your first reply. Go fuck yourself.

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.

I honestly don't think you believe I would bother doing that. I think sane people may have found this amusing.

BTW AGAIN, This is me the Microsoft lover holding up OPENBSD Install Media I bought sometime in the past:

Yes I do look about 14 when I have a shave.

Fair enough. Sorry mate, I hope you can accept my deepest apologises. And I genuinely mean this ;)

Actually I do respect your opinions. I respect that you like the ribbon bar, I have no problem with that. I just don't want to be told that I'm wrong because I happen mention that I dislike the ribbon bar. And this is what you're doing, not just to me, but to everyone in this topic.
