Windows 9: User Experience Evolved?
So if your like me you didn’t necessarily dig Windows 8 or its upgrade Windows 8.1 but Microsoft is trying a gutsy move: An operating system that adjusts its visual appearance and user interface to accommodate the hardware its on. So what exactly does that mean for the average joe? Well if your using a laptop or desktop where a keyboard and mouse are present Windows 9 will bypass the metro style interface and take you straight to the tried and true Windows Desktop screen, if you have a Windows Tablet it will use a touch screen styled interface like Metro and if you have a Tabtop (Tablet/Laptop Hybrid) then it will allow you to switch be the Metro interface and traditional desktop style when a keyboard is detected. Windows 9 is reported to be coming out in the Spring next year and the public preview will be available in the fall so we may see, sooner rather than later, if this will be the shot in the arm Microsoft and Windows or yet another poison.
