Image representing Windows as depicted in Crun...Image via CrunchBaseThe next generation of Microsoft Window's operating system may be a whole lots more of re-imagining and revolution going than we may have first thought off. The revamp to the current interface and practicality of Windows 7 is just one small line of introduction to welcome the future, while promising the users to whole new experience in running their gadgets.

Currently code-named "Windows 8", the preview to one of the most exquisite and exotically 'new-wave of technology cums experience' operating system was made earlier this month, in conjunction with 2011 D9 Conference. "Windows 8" will powers personal computers like never before, from small hand-held gadgets to the large screen PCs. Adequately, it includes personal computers like home and business desktops, laptops, netbooks, tablet PCs, and media center PCs.

Here is the video to demonstrate it all. We welcome "Windows 8" with much anticipation, watch the embedded video after the jump.

Below are the list of things we can expect from "Windows 8":

New Start Screen will features live tiles for computer apps
New "thumb-layout" touch keyboard 
  1. Start screen will be in a series of mosaic of tiles, replacing the normal Start menu. Live tiles replacing the normal icons, to allow the apps in your computer to show its personalities and to show up-to-date information from your apps.
  2. Supports HTML5 and Java for building web-connected and web-powered apps.
  3. Designed for all kinds of mode of use: not just touch-device, but also keyboard and mouse.
  4. Fast, natural and fluid experience to get in between the running apps - a simple swipe from the side to change the running apps.
  5. "Snap" user interface - positioning and re-sizing two different running windows or apps for multitasking.
  6. Internet Explorer 10 will allow high integration of touch experience and is hardware-accelerated.
  7. Touch keyboard now can be used as a "thumbs layout" keyboard for more ergonomic.
  8. Runs existing Windows programs and apps.
  9. Integrated and revamped file system with the new apps.
That's the slightest taste of what we can expect from the new generation of OS. More updates on the building of "Windows 8" soon.
