Windows Windows 8 will be one of the most significant releases for Microsoft ever, since it pretty much rethinks the entire graphical user interface. One of the problems I personally see with Metro is that it doesn't appear to be particularly conducive to getting actual work done. In an interview with The Verge, Microsoft design director Steve Kaneko confirmed that it's hard to adapt applications like Office to use Metro.

Android is doing something pretty close in ICS. It's a column of apps with window previews, so not totally Expose-like, but a similar idea modified for the limited screen real estate.


Looks pretty cool. Didn't see it before, so thank you for mentioning it.
