Whether you're going to miss the Charms bar or not, users likely have a list of things they love (or loath) about Windows 8. We've already had a few hints at what to expect in the next version -- the classic start menu for example. Now, we have some videos (below) purportedly showing the Windows 9 in action (or, a fairly complete build of it, at least). Some of the more interesting features shown include a revised, (unified) Notification Center, a demonstration of how multi-desktop will work, and of course, that beloved start menu. Naturally, all usual caveats apply (things could change, and probably will), but, as Windows 9 creeps further out of the shadows, we're getting a clearer picture of what sort of user experience we can expect.
