Windows 8 New UI (Codenamed Mosh) and App Model (Codenamed Jupiter)

While the first taste of Windows 8 might be just around the corner as CES 2011 kicks off later today, some fresh tidbits related to Windows 7’s successor have made their way to the public.

Windows 8 will reportedly feature a new graphical user interface codenamed Mosh and a new application model codenamed Jupiter.

The information comes from WinSupersite, and has not been confirmed, which means that users should take it with a grain of salt.

I think the title of the news is a bit misleading. In fact, there are two new GUI : one for touch, codenamed "mush", one for the keyboard+mouse (which I still believe it's the most effective) codemaned "Wind".

I suppose Windows 8 will use one or the other depending on the display... I'm more looking forward to screenshot of the GUI instead of the NUI.

For the App Model codenamed Jupiter... *reads* Oh gawd, don't turn Windows into a Mac OS X-like idea. It will make Windows users sad.

Agreed.

I find 7 to be very polished and near perfect in most respects. I am hoping that they don't mess things up with 8.

If we go by their track record, the odds are against Win8.

Hope they can buck the trend this time.

Would be nice to have something like OSX, I mean, programs, that doesn't screw up the whole system. If they were bundled like OSX, that would be nice... :shock:
