- Windows 1.0 and Windows 8 sharing the same design? It seems so. Windows 8 was officially launched more than one year ago, and although you might be tempted to think that people have already gotten used to the Modern UI, this never happened.
In fact, users across the world keep making fun on the Metro interface, claiming that its colorful and boxy design is actually inspired by Windows 1.0. And, to be honest, now that we’re looking at this picture, there might be some truth behind these words.
“Gaudy colors, boxy design. Apps can either run as a small tile or fullscreen. No freely resizable/movable windows,” the picture we’ve found on Reddit claims.
