Microsoft inched further toward the tablet world Tuesday by revealing a slew of new details about its upcoming Windows 8 operating system at its Build developers conference, being held in Anaheim, Calif., through Friday. Windows Division President Steven Sinofsky headlined the presentation, which demoed various aspects of the new operating system. Among other things, Windows 8 will incorporate the Metro-style touch user interface familiar to Windows Phone 7 users. Also, Metro-style apps built for Windows 8 will be full-screen.
I am not so sold on the whole Metro UI thing. I guess I will try it.
but it looks as though Microsoft is trying to combine a mobile OS with a Desktop OS. That might save them development time and money. But if I had to guess right now how it will be received? I think many will hold on to Windows 7 like they did XP.
