Back in January I wrote about how Windows Phone 9 and Windows 9 should integrate some of their features, including the marketplace and more. Since then, there continues to be rumors that Microsoft is doing this sooner rather than later, with Windows Blue, which could arrive sometime later this year. The more I look at...

The website MicrosoftPortal.Net has started reporting on what MIGHT be the first screenshots of Windows 9 in the wild. They note that the M1 build kernel has been given a bump to 6.3 (Windows 8 uses kernel 6.2). In addition, the images are supposedly from Windows 9 build 9319; Windows 8 was build 9200. This might be a...

Although Windows Phone 8 might not be the most popular mobile platform on the market, there is no denying that Microsoft’s OS has come along way from Windows Phone 7 and consumers and hardware makers are both starting to take notice and throw in their support. Now a new job posting has now show up at Microsoft that is...

Windows 8 has been here for a bit now, and that means that inside of Microsoft’s headquarters attention is already turning towards the next “big thing”. With that in mind, what do we actually KNOW about Windows 9? Very, very little at this stage. Still, let’s attempt to gather what we’ve heard and draw a bigger picture...

Over the last few years, we’ve seen two very different opinions evolve in regards to Windows 8. Some say that the new UI is the best thing to ever happen to Windows. Others say that it is pure evil reborn. To be honest though, there are many other opinions that are shades of gray here. Those who love Windows 8’s...

Windows 8 just came out and that means Windows 9 is still a few years away, unless you believe that Windows Blue is actually Windows 9 and not just Windows 8.X. Even though we have a long ways before truly major features arrive with Windows 9 (or so I would like to imagine), I thought we’d take a look back at a few...

Windows 8 sales continue to be slow, and many users continue to push the idea that the start menu needs to return. It’s not going to happen. There are several reasons, but the biggest reason is that Microsoft is riding on the new UI’s ability to give them a piece of the mobile pie. They aren’t backing down. That said,...

A few weeks ago Windows Blue was the talk of the virtual town. There were cries from Zdnet and the Verge that Microsoft was changing the way the Windows world worked by introducing yearly upgrades to Windows going forward. According to our own Onuora, the idea sounds kind of crazy– at least in the form people are...

Alright let’s face it, Windows 9 is still at least a little ways away (depending on if you believe Windows 9 is really Blue or not). At this point, little solid information is heading our way. That said, there is certainly plenty to speculate on. What’s the point? Not everyone likes thinking about the future, but some...

In a previous article we talked about what Windows 9 might bring to the table and how it might help make the changes between the desktop and START UI less jarring. What you might have noticed from that article though is I never once indicated that the Start UI was in danger or going extinct. For those that think...
