New Windows 9 Screenshots may show Microsoft headed in the same old direction
I was busy putting together another article about Windows 9 and the direction that Satya Nadella might take the new Operating System and then this happend.
The drip drip of new Windows 9 screenshots seem to have begun.
On some forums on the web recently, a couple of new alleged Windows 9 screenshots have been revealed.
The first shows a new Windows 9 Start Button and the second shows a Windows 9 settings screen.
The new Windows 9 Start Button?
The first screenshot allegedly shows a new Windows 9 Start Button.
On one hand, it’s cool that Microsoft are bringing this back and seem to have learned from the mistakes of Windows 8.x. It seems to me however that this is a sure sign that Microsoft will not be doing anything new and major with Windows 9.
That is distressing but I’ll get to that later.
The next new screenshot is a Windows 9 Settings screenshot.

This looks a lot like a Windows 8.x screen.
I don’t know about you all but assuming these screenshots are real, the real story coming here may be that Microsoft is deciding to use Windows 9.x as the “do no harm” Operating System.
That means that there may be more patching and fixing but less true innovation.
More about that in my next article but real quick, what do you all think about the screenshots?
