Windows 8 is just around the corner. Microsoft is making good on their promise of upgrading Windows at a more timely manner. Now designed to keep up with newer technology, and giving emphasis to quick access, Windows 8 improves on Windows 7 in a lot of ways.
The guys at windows8beta.com posted several screenshots and some tidbits. While not much has been made public about the new OS, it is said to be more friendly to touch devices. Hence, the adoption of a tile layout similar to Windows Phone 7 Metro UI. Other than this, the ribbon will make its appearance in the OS itself and not just in Microsoft Office.
Windows 8 will bring a new mobile experience to those who use tablets and eventually when touch screen monitors become a big thing. While they've been hyping the advantages of its touch friendly layout, the OS still works great with the traditional keyboard and mouse.
Windows 8 build 7989 screenshots have already been leaked and the betta fish bootscreen captured.
