In dribbles and drips, we’re (allegedly) learning more about the next Microsoft OS, Windows 9Threshold”. The latest bit to leak out is a screenshot that purports to show the new desktop environment, including a remade Start screen.

Windows 9 Start

The screen grab comes from My Digital Life forum user DUF_, and you can see that the Start menu is back in force in Windows 9. In addition to having something resembling the traditional look of the Start menu, Microsoft has also added Metro apps to it, which is a reasonable way of unifying the two environments in a much more sensible way than in Windows 8.1.

Windows 9 Start

Assuming this is a real shot and not an elaborate fake, it’s yet an early version of Windows 9, so don’t assume that this is what the final version will look like. Still, it’s pleasing to see Microsoft pushing to change the things about its OS that users haven’t been particularly fond of.

Good call by Microsoft making it the best of both worlds. Incorporating things from the past but not forgetting to move on to the future as well. Looking forward to playing around with it.

If "all of your games run laggy" in Windows 8/8.1, there was something wrong with your setup. I switched our graphics test bed over many months ago, and have tested multiple driver revisions and virtually every graphics modern graphics cards, and there were no Windows 8 specific performance issues to speak of.

You have something really stuffed up if your games run lagging in windows 8, I saw improvements in all games with Windows 8. Biggest improvement was Battlefield.

MichaelDavidAnthonyFincham it has to be your setup.

ThomasTaege has it spot on.
