Manual window management is awful. Windows 8 ditched windows in favor of fullscreen apps. Traditional desktop window paradigms are powerful but obsolete.

Windows 9 unifies previous contrasting paradigms, taking design cues from all platforms and recent innovations.

Just an unofficial design concept, but damn, this is sexy. This is exactly what Windows needs - a combination of the old and new, leading to something seemingly far more usable than the monstrosity that is Metro in Windows 8.

Can't we just get normal windows? I can resize/organize them just fine.

Also, I know it's hard to believe, but there are applications that use more than four huge-ass buttons to do stuff.

People complained about FisherPrice UI when Windows XP came out. THIS is a true babys-first-computer UI. You CAN create a visually attractive dekstop without removing functionality, apple somehow manages to pull this off (not everyone is a fan of osx but you can't deny it's elegant and does not limit functionality the same way metro or this design does).
