Coinciding with Microsoft Windows president Steven Sinofsky’s keynote at D9 Conference, Microsoft has released a video that gives a quick sample of the user interface in the next windows release being called “Windows 8” which expected to be released sometime in mid 2012. The video features Jensen Harris who is the Director of Program Management for the Windows User Experience Team. This is the first a many videos expected from Microsoft covering the various aspects of Windows 8 and more videos will be released up until the final product ships. Excerpt from the release and video below for your reading and viewing pleasure.
Today, at the D9 Conference, we demonstrated the next generation of Windows, internally code-named “Windows 8,” for the first time. Windows 8 is a re-imagining of Windows, from the chip to the interface. A Windows 8-based PC is really a new kind of device, one that scales from touch-only small screens through to large screens, with or without a keyboard and mouse.
The demo showed some of the ways we’ve reimagined the interface for a new generation of touch-centric hardware. Fast, fluid and dynamic, the experience has been transformed while keeping the power, flexibility and connectivity of Windows intact.
