Microsoft Demoes Windows 8[VIDEO]

It's the next version of the Windows Franchise. Microsoft has changed the entire User Interface and it now looks something like Windows Phone 7 on a large screen. The home screen shows block of tiles with pre-installed with apps for weather and business, it can be modified to add other Windows 8 apps. Switching from application to application is a breeze. With a swipe of the finger on the right screen[if you're on a touchscreen device] or a click of the mouse, you can move to the next opened app. You can also resize open apps in the same way, so you can multitask.

Here's a list of some of the features they added:

•Fast launching of apps from a tile-based Start screen, which replaces the Windows Start menu with a customizable, scalable full-screen view of apps.

•Live tiles with notifications, showing always up-to-date information from your apps.

•Fluid, natural switching between running apps.

•Convenient ability to snap and resize an app to the side of the screen, so you can really multitask using the capabilities of Windows.

•Web-connected and Web-powered apps built using HTML5 and JavaScript that have access to the full power of the PC.

•Fully touch-optimized browsing, with all the power of hardware-accelerated Internet Explorer 10.

It is simply beautiful and I won't lie tears were coming out of my eyes as i watched the video below. You can tell that microsoft is ready to port Windows 8 to a multiple range of devices: TV, Tablets, maybe even phones.
