The Windows 8 dilemma: Win 8 or wait for 9?

Windows N+1

Seems like Redmond is going the Mozilla Firefox way on version numbers.

Amazingly, we're at Firefox V30 nowadays !

This means W9 is for next year, and then W10 the year after. Then, they'll switch to 6 months release date, in order to milk the "I bought W N+1" base, until they too dry out.

That's OK to me, their stuff is anyway only gonna live as a VM with hacked serial on my Mac, for the legacy programs (number reducing over time) I'm still using occasionally.

Seriously, hiding the shutdown button, WTF ... This and so many other GUI atrocities ...
