    Centered Titlebar Text For Windows 8?


    As noted by Rafael Rivera on his site, it looks like we may see centered titlebar text in Aero Basic (picture below). While CEO Steve Ballmer made it a point to note that we weren't looking at a new UI, it is definately a change from Windows 7.

    It must be a modified version of the windows 7 GUI.
    If you also notice the minimize and maximize are missing.
    I think its a limited functionality GUI

    ^I agree It looks that that version of 8 is questionable, becasue it could have been a modified theme of sorts, unless the only true changes they made were from the kernels and whatnot, if so its about time, because its been 10+ years, all MS has rely done is that it built on MS-DOS. With the exception of the 9x OSs.

    Windows 7 is built on NT technology using the similar NT 6.x code from Windows Vista. Powershell is just a more powerful version of Command Prompt.

    Windows supported MS-DOS from Windows 1.01 to Windows ME, excluding all verisons of Windows that were built of the NT kernel (e.g. Windows NT: 3.1, 3.5, 3.51, 4.0, 2000, XP, Vista, and 7).
