Windows 8 Previewed By Microsoft

Steven Sinofsky took the stage at AllThingsDigital conference and talked about next Windows. It is internally codenamed Windows 8. According to Microsoft’s press release, “Windows 8 is a re-imagining of Windows, from the chip to the interface“. The interface works seamlessly with touch controls and as well as with keyboard and mouse. The key feature of the new interface in Windows 8 are:

1. 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.

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

3. Fluid, natural switching between running apps.

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

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

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

The underlying core in Windows 8 ensures the compatibility with Windows 7 logo PCs, software and peripherals. Windows 8 apps will be developed using HTML5 and JavaScript. The apps will adapt themselves to different  screen resolutions, pixel densities, and controls.

Below is a demonstration video by Microsoft.
