Windows 7 Coming Update or Windows 9 Preview?
Posted on 13th April 2014
Now that the Windows 7 Update 1 has begun to make its rounds, could Microsoft be getting ready to push yet another update with GUI changes?
Engadget reports that Microsoft Asia is working on testing some new ideas with the tiles in the MetroUI interface. Some of the features they are testing include the ability to interact with the tile without having to launch the program. Microsoft Asia is looking at better integration with desktop apps and the interfacing with tiles.
It is unknown if these new ideas will become part of some future release of Windows, either Update 2 for 8.1 or Windows 9. It does add “interesting” to the vocabulary of what might become part of the Windows ecosystem.
Head on over to Engadget to see a few videos on the new ideas.
