Windows 8 - Possible Features

Microsoft may still be plugging away at selling Windows 7 to consumers and the enterprise, but rumors have already started about the next version of the popular operating system—dubbed "Windows 8" by many in the media.

Perhaps people are overloaded on Apple rumors because the rumor mill has shifted to Microsoft and its next operating system, now referred to in the blogosphere as Windows 8.

Microsoft seems to be giving a design overhaul to its next major operating system Windows 8. Images from a pre-beta version of Windows 8 reveal that Microsoft is apparently expanding its use of the ribbon interface to replace traditional pull-down menus and toolbars.

The Internet Explorer is expected to work in full screen and shows browser history in the form of tiles. The Windows 8 UI is termed as Immersive and seems difficult to unlock for performing any checks or changes. This new Immersive UI is aimed at tablets and mobile phones.

Microsoft, however has stays tight-lipped about a possible release date for the next version of Windows.
