The MSDN blog have released a nice blog post detailing the past and future of the Windows OS. The post shows of all the native features brought to us by earlier version of Windows and that goes all the way back to Windows 1, with each new version of Windows bringing along with it new features that still live on today. In fact, if we were to look at Windows 1, we can still see similar layouts to it and the current version of Windows 7. Now the fact that Windows 1 was release back in 1985, it’s no doubt a wonderful milestone to see such innovation inspire all versions of Windows thereafter.
Now we are looking forward to the newest version of Windows and that is Windows 8. This version brings with it the newest UI designed for touch interface and it’s called metro. It’s a the newest layout that goes beyond any previous version of Windows. So what are Microsoft’s goals for Windows 8. Well the blog post has detailed each one for nicely. Let’s take a look at each one.
- Fast and fluid
- Long battery life
- Windows 8 apps
- Live tiles
- Apps work together to save you time.
- Roam your experience between PCs
- Make your PC work like a device, not a computer
These goals are being focused on for Windows 8 and with its launch this October, Microsoft are now putting the finishing touches on Windows 8 and getting ready for their biggest release yet.
