PC Performance Pros updates the Windows Operating choices for those people considering upgrading to Windows 8. With the open risk left in the wake of Windows XP’s downgrade from supported to non-supported, Windows 8 was supposed to change the world. It did not manage that task as neatly as it should have. Given that, many people have been on the fence about whether or not to upgrade from XP and, Windows Vista or Windows 7 to Windows 8. Many Victorville and High Desert computer users have decided to wait until some other option came along. That other option launches in BETA mode on September 30, 2014. Introducing Windows 9, perhaps the best reason yet to wait to upgrade. Here are a few features that might make you wait for the next best thing.

Start Menu: Welcome back the start menu. After the multitude of bad reviews of Windows 8, Microsoft has heard the masses and returned the start menu with a twist. The old-school start menu will be similar to the start menu on Windows 7 but with the capacity to add in the live tiles to your desktop. This should satisfy both touch-screen users and those who prefer to access buttons with the mouse. This is a move that should appease both the traditional PC user and those with mobile devices.

Virtual Desktops: Welcome to the age of progressive technology. After years of having the option on a very limited number of other windows platforms, the virtual desktop now becomes a feature in the center of the Windows stage. With the way that current PC and laptops operate you have only one desktop, but with the improved Windows 9 platform you have the easy option of adding a virtual desktops. Power up your productivity with a power playground.

While Windows 8 has some rather positive features, it tried to do too much, to soon for too many people. Still, Windows 8 is relevant for those High Desert computer users with touch screen monitors and who like the metro look of Windows 8. What is different about Windows 9 is that it allows you the option to choose either or rather than just limiting your choice to active tiles. For people who don’t mind the active tiles, such as mobile devices, tables and phone users, Windows 8 is very relevant.

Considerations for those computer users who are not sure which way to go:

  • Ask yourself if you are willing to be limited only by metro style active tiles? If that is not a problem for you, then either option is good for you. If you are a computer user who likes the use of a mouse and keyboard then, Windows 9 is the answer for you.
  • If the idea of working with multiple desktops is appealing for you then, Windows 9 is the way to go.
  • If you are lost without the start menu, then windows 9 is the way to go.
  • If you want more of a blended approach to change then Windows, 9 may be your best bet.
  • If you want a platform that is tested then Windows, 8 may be a better choice. Microsoft is notorious for shipping things that need more testing. Windows 9 may fit that category.
