Taking a look at the evolution of the Windows client from one major release to the next, it quickly becomes clear that the platform’s graphical user interface is being overhauled with every new version.
Windows 8 will make no exception to this rule, with a lot of pressure already on Microsoft to not only revamp the UI, but also make sure that the redesign is tailored to emerging form factors such as Tablet PCs.
The software giant is keeping all Windows 8 details under a tight lid in Redmond, and is not expected to confirm a UI redesign until such a time when the first Beta development will go public, or just ahead of its release.
Still, the company has certainly been hard at work on taking the UI of Windows vNext to the next level, as information published by Manoj Manduva revealed (via Between the Lines).
Manduva notes that between January and March 2010 work has been poured into a document set up to illustrate how the Windows 8 UI could evolve.
Manduva was involved in an “industry collaborative project under the supervision of Microsoft R&D India pvt Ltd, Hyderabad , is about creating a new and innovative interfaces and user experiences for the next generation Operating system Windows 8 for information workers.”
