Building Windows 8 #1 – User Interface

A video series that will showcase the different new features of the upcoming OS from Microsoft, Windows 8. This video tells us more about the new user interface of Windows 8. Read on for the video.

Here are a few aspects of the new interface we showed today:

Fast launching of apps from a tile-based Start screen, which replaces the Windows Start menu with a customizable, scalable full-screen view of apps.

Live tiles with notifications, showing always up-to-date information from your apps.

Fluid, natural switching between running apps.

Convenient ability to snap and resize an app to the side of the screen, so you can really multitask using the capabilities of Windows.

Web-connected and Web-powered apps built using HTML5 and JavaScript that have access to the full power of the PC.

Fully touch-optimized browsing, with all the power of hardware-accelerated Internet Explorer 10.

The new interface definitely looks appetizing. Lets hope its equally adequate in the inside as compared to the stunning outside.

Oh and for those who want to have somewhat a similar type of interface to the windows phones for your desktop, you can look up the different styles and themes for rainmeter. You can certainly customize your desktop to look as pretty if you liked those tiles styled interface.
