Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT) is providing the first significant look at Windows 8, the next generation of the company's operating system that will run on tablet and desktop computers and can be used with a keyboard and mouse or on a mobile device's touchscreen.


Windows 8 operating system is designed to work with touch-centric hardware with the capability to work across both x86 and ARM-based mobile devices. With its touch-gesture interface, observers noted that Windows 8 in some ways more closely resembles Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system than the current Windows 7 designed for desktop PCs.

That's like nothing at all I expected. Wow!

One interface on every device, laptops, desktops, phones and tablets.
Good luck Microsoft. You might be on to something.
