  • Don't wait for Windows 9: How to get a Start Menu, windowed Metro apps today

    By Brad Chacos | 17 April, 2014 02:46

    Between the release of the PC-friendly spring update for Windows 8.1 and the newfound introduction of universal "buy once, play anywhere" Windows apps, Microsoft is doing all it can to spur the One Microsoft vision while, well, letting a PC be a PC and a tablet be a tablet. But, sadly, the most anticipated improvements have yet to arrive.

  • The Windows XP upgrade question: Windows 7 or Windows 8?

    Microsoft may be comfortable with Windows Phone and Android splitting time on a single phone, but when it comes to PCs, fuhgeddaboutit.
