Leaked Windows 9 Build Shows Return Of A Redesigned Start Menu

Microsoft Windows 9 was already being rumored and now a new leaked build seems to confirm the whispers. While the leaked screenshots show a Windows 8.1 Pro watermark, from past experiences we can safely assume that to be the case with very early alpha builds. The new "Hybrid Start Menu" appears to be a mix of the legacy start menu with Metro portion integrated into-it as tiles. Also, it is to be noted that this build 9788 having Windows NT kernel version 6.4 (which is the next kernel version hence Windows 9 not Windows 8.2), which was compiled on July 4 has got no ISO's available/leaked on file-sharing and torrent websites for download so the origin of the leak should be inside Microsoft.

SugarSync Starts Ditching Free Customers, Here's How To Move Data To Other Free Services

SugarSync stopped offering Free usage-tier some time ago, and has now started purging old free accounts. SugarSync is ditching free-users including users like me who promoted SugarSync in there early days and earned free referral bonus (140+GB in my case). This is not all, these guys are so unprofessional that when contacted about the issue few months ago I was told that since I have referral bonus my account will be ok and will not be purged in February, which was not the case. Thankfully I received an automated account-purge notice by email and contacting them again I was told that the earlier support staff was mistaken and all free accounts will get purged.

With account cancellation getting near-by I was left with the task of moving my data to alternative free cloud-storage services, since I am on a slow internet connection downloading and re-uploading was not an option. Thankfully, there are free-to-try services allowing cloud-to-cloud data transfers which comes handy in situations like this where users are left in the lurch.
