This article talks about bringing back the start bar, and about the metro interface. I have concerns about Windows 9 on the Surface: 1. The start button will be awful to use on a touch screen. It has on hover events and small text which is really built for mouse use. I don't want that thing on my tablet 2. If they bring back the start button does that mean they're getting rid of the full screen metro ui? Again, I prefer using the metro ui since it's a tablet 3. The article suggests that Microsoft might force tablet users to only use metro. If Microsoft does this to us it would remove tremendous functionality from our i5, i7 tablets I'm looking forward to Windows 9 for Cortana and to try out wifi and storage sense, but if they begin replacing touch friendly UI with desktop UI, or if they remove desktop UI and force us onto touch UI then I'm not going to be happy. For tablets they got the balance right for me in W8.
