Looking Ahead To Windows 9 | TechCrunch. The truth is that I never met a Metro Interface that I liked. Legal blogging is generally boring; but, the Windows Metro interface is a pain. So, let's talk about Windows 9. Windows 9? It isn't ever here yet! Well, that is right; but, I know something, in my gut. Windows 9 will be a lot like Windows 7. Remember Windows 7? The one that we all liked? The one that preceded Windows 8, which we all hate? Yes, that one. Well, most of us actually paid extra money so that we never had to see Metro again. (Yes, I know Microsoft doesn't want us to call it that...I don't care). The focus in Windows 9 will be on the desktop, where most of us live. Huzzah!
