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.

you always need different user interfaces for phones, tablets and the desktop.

Couldn't agree with you more!

Personally I love using Android on my SGS3, but I would also hate it on my laptop! Even with touchscreen, it seems counter productive to touch the screen when a mouse or trackpad is so much more precise and easy to use. Even when my kids were about 1 or 2, they were able to grasp the idea of a mouse moving the cursor with some relative precision. If it's that easy then why do we need to change it?
