with one comment

Microsoft last night unveiled a video introducing their upcoming version of Windows, codenamed Windows 8. The drastic changes that are apparent in the UI is a start screen, inspired from the Windows 7 Phone operating system’s start screen. The screen which is full of tiles of Windows and third-party apps is more like an add-on functionality to the current Windows UI.

There will be the current desktop, the start menu and everything that Windows 7 has but besides that, there will be a start screen. The screen more particularly efficient for tablet devices is beautifully represented in the video attached below.

The presenter Jenson Harris, Director of Program Management for Windows User Experience said the OS will run on all computing platforms – desktops, laptops and tablets, as expected.

Here’s the video! More to follow, indeed.
