Microsoft’s New Windows 8 supports touchscreens! I understand the addition/universalisation what with all the increasing number of touchscreen tablets and devices coming up but maybe now they want us to buy touchscreen monitors for our PCs or better still..maybe the ‘MICROSOFT SURFACE’!
“Design IS Beautiful” he says…let me add to that..”but for a Mobile device ie”.
Yes it exactly looks like the Metro/Mango and Design and UI for a PC could be much more attractive and functional than blocks of different colors.
Windows 8 means that ‘gone are the days of wireless mouse and keyboard’… I mean u have to sit at arms length in front of ur monitor to operate it? Yes there is a keyboard and mouse support…THANK GAWD! But still what where they thinking making an OS ‘touch based’? Do all of us have to get ‘KINECT’ now?
Oh btw they are referring to Softwares as APPS now!
I get the subtle and simple designs and icons but did anybody notice that “APP” icons are just symbols and not even the least bit ‘designed’ attractively? (especially the ones on the Media Player!)
All said, done and anathematized…I am still gonna get my hands on Win8 when its out and possibly a touchscreen monitor when its easy on my pockets (or when its even commercial ie) 😛
