    Nope. The N70 can only support Flash-Lite 1.1 or Flash-Lite 2.0, but not "full" Flash (9 or otherwise).

    Interactive live tiles on the Start screen would be a nice feature. But I'll bet you the stomachs of a few hardcore W7 enthusiasts will turn sour at the mention of Metro 2.0! *Biggrin

    I do not think it can get any worse than Metro 1 any thing will be better than what they have now.

    Odd they don't have the modern side readied. But then again, this preview build is to be called the Windows Technology Preview geared for the enterprise, so it makes sense.

    Bet you a Bitcoin that on the day they show off everything new with Windows, we'll get to see what's in store. More like, I'LL get to see what's in store as this mini Start Screen menu is such a drag! *Tongue

    The, and I quote "few hardcore W7 enthusiasts" you refer to represents about 90% of windows users. Keep that metro for those who like it, I have no problem with that, to each his own. But keep that crap off my desktop. End of discussion.

    Edit: Of course, we are getting ahead of ourselves a bit here... it could well be that 9 will please everyone.... I'm betting it will.

    They can't release that thing too soon...!!

    On that quoted bit, still unsure how that will work on a Laptop with touch screen

    How will MS know if I want to use the mouse/keyboard (always attached) or use the touchscreen side of it (always active)

    let me chose seems the only way, I cant see how they can decide on a machine that has touch and a mouse/keyboard

    It seems to me that it would have to be configurable just like 8.1.

    I think we should get away from the name Metro. It has too many blood stains. Let's call it W9UI and hope that we will like it.

    I hope they come out with something really exiting the first time W9 shows it's face. Another initial negative review would not help and would be very difficult to iron out. A sequence of 2 operating system releases that do not convince the crowds would be pretty earthshaking.

    Btw - I like 8.1 - but I am not 'the crowd'.

    You’re correct. I usually call it Modern/Metro, but from now on I’ll call it Modern. Technically that’s the proper name.

    You can bet they will continue honing the Modern. Much better system than the old dinosaur desktop way of performing things IMO. I’m hoping they port a lot more CP settings there, if not all.

    I’m quite sure they’ll work out the multi-windowing of Store apps. I’m also looking forward to the Modern Office suite. I will be 95% Modern then, for that’s really the only think I have left that opens on the desktop. I’m using the Modern OneNote. I’m hardly ever in File Explorer for I use the OneDrive Store app instead.

    I obtained free Store apps such as one to replace Notepad, a dictionary, calculator, etc. I also got a $50 MS account gift card when I bought my Lumia I can use towards apps and other items.

    After watching the video John posted here, I can see where the desktop is being treated more like a Modern app. It just dawned on me (after helping someone the other day) that when I purchased a MS Arc mouse during 7 and installed MS Keyboard and Mouse Center that it had a Modern UI, but opens on the desktop. It's linked in the mouse properties via CP or type "mouse" in search.

    I'm beginning to see what Kerry (alphanumeric) means when he states that sooner or later with some we won't tell the difference. If I auto hide my Taskbar, I won’t be able to until I close the app out then the desktop remains. But then it’s > Hold WinKey > Tap period key > Down arrow > Release WinKey. I belong to MS CEIP and that’s my way of voting to get rid of it. *Biggrin
