Windows 9 Will Ditch Metro

Russian tipster Wzor has said that the enterprise version of Windows 9 will be released without the Metro (tile-based) UI. The source also said that Windows 9 would support a 3D mode and Windows 8.1 users will receive a free upgrade to the new OS, or possibly a $20 special offer. Wzor also claimed that Windows 9 RT is under development and will run on the Surface Pro 3.

I would be very surprised to see an RT version of Windows 9, especially after Microsoft’s announcement last year (Display Monitor Vol 20 No 46) that it was ‘fed up’ of supporting multiple different operating systems. (TA)
