Preston Gralla, from Computerworld says that it will include a tiled interface, similar to the one employed by Windows Phone 7, and it will include a heavier use of the Ribbon.
Back at the All Things D conference in June, Microsoft unveiled a Windows 8 start screen that looks very much like the Windows Phone 7 tiled interface. Applications are represented as tiles, and those tiles can have information piped into them, such as new e-mails, Twitter feeds, and so on. Microsoft refers to this as Metro.
A few days ago, Microsoft showed a ribbonized version of the Windows Explorer file manager. In a blog post about the new design, Alex Simons, director of program management for Microsoft, says that use of the ribbon will "allow us to create an optimized file manager where commands would have reliable, logical locations in a streamlined experience."
Windows president Steven Sinofsky blogged about how he sees the Metro tiled interface will work with the Ribbon, and he said that "Having both of user interfaces together harmoniously is an important part of Windows 8." He talks about the ways in which he sees the two types of interfaces working with one another. One key is that you'll be able to switch between two types of interfaces -- Metro and the traditional interface. He writes, "If you want to, you can seamlessly switch between Metro style apps and the improved Windows desktop."
Me:I really see this being used in tablets, but I cant say that I will be using the touch optimized UI with a mouse on a PC. I think that it is great how they touch optimized the new windows 8 but I think that it still has a long way to go. Tell me what you think by commenting down below.
