Windows 8 Welcome Screen Looks Very Metro

autospa (2003166) writes "Microsoft is apparently using some recent design innovations from Windows Phone 7 and Office in early test versions of Windows 8, including aspects of its mobile Metro user interface and Office’s Ribbon. The early design changes tell us that Microsoft will likely be looking for further inspiration for Windows 8 from its mobile and office software — and perhaps elsewhere as well. Windows 7, for the most part, looks like a more polished version of the much reviled Vista. Now it seems like Microsoft may be aiming for a fresh start in Windows 8."

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
