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

I expect a new release next year as MS seems to be keeping with the 3 year major cycle. Vista went live late '06 followed by 7 in mid '09 and most recently W8 in October 2012. It seems reasonable to expect that sometime in the second half of next year that W9 will be splashing across desktabs everywhere well before X-mas '15. Either way there's probably time to get knocked-up and calve before we start seeing a preview edition if there are any. Will it be better than W8.x? As always the answer will be, yes and no. Many rumors to follow, undoubtedly.
