I wonder how Windows 9 will look and what specifications will need.

Posibly because of 8.1. They might see that as 9
Another posibility is to trick people who don't know any better that they are 2-3 versions behind, not 1-2.

We've noticed that programers are still coding for 20+ year old software still...are you serious?

Some people/organisations are surprisingly stubborn. 

 

Anyway, from people who have used the preview, apparently it uses a comparatively small amount of RAM, and they really like the interface. I'm hoping this ends up being a 'good' OS (like how Windows 8 and vista were poorly received), since it would mean when I finally upgrade from my 2004-era XP machine I won't have the doubt people have with 8...

Well, either way, as a regular user I can understand that. They want to avoid more problems.

I actually really like the look of that start menu. Although I still find the whole tiles/app idea to be a pointless gimmick. 

Why would I sign into the Twitter app for example, when I could just use the desktop site? Same goes for any of the other apps or tiles.

I like the new start menu too, although I'm still not a big fan of the metro UI.

You can uninstall a bunch of apps from the start menu that you don't want.

I was a beta tester for Windows 10 a year ago when I freelanced for Technicolor Studios. I feel like I can finally say this, now that the cat's out of the bag. :p

Really? That's cool. What are some of the major changes that you've witnessed, if there was any at all?

I think it's more for compatibility checks. It sounds a little tongue-in-cheek but is entirely possible, though why they wouldn't be using the internal Microsoft OS codes (6.x for Vista/post-Vista) I don't know.

Are there any talks of letting users Beta test it?
