This interface is a nice change of pace. It seems like windows have taken a back seat and lesson to the public about what they want in a next gen tablet and pc. Please take the time to watch the video because if a photo is worth a thousand words then this video will blow your mind. To be honest even if your loyal to Android or Apple this beta tablet will turn heads.
Let’s get started. These are some of the things to expect:

Touch-First User Interface

Windows 8 introduces a new Metrostyle interface built for touch, which shows information important to you. The Metro style UI is equally at home with a mouse and keyboard as well. Touch-first browsing, not just browsing on a touch device.  That means its ready for maximum internet access. Providing a fast and fluid touch-browsing experience, Internet Explorer 10 puts sites at the center on new Windows 8 devices.

More Ways to Engage With Powerful, Connected Apps

Metro style apps built for Windows 8 are the focal point of your experience, filling your entire screen so there are no distractions. Apps can work together. Apps communicate with each other in Windows 8. Your experience syncs across your devices. Live roams all the content from the cloud services you use most — photos, email, calendar and contacts — keeping them up-to-date on your devices. With SkyDrive, you can access your files, photos and documents from virtually anywhere with any browser or with Metro style apps in Windows 8.

Enhanced Fundamentals

They took everything we loved about Windows 7, and made it better. Windows 8 is built on the rock-solid foundation of Windows 7, delivering improvements in performance, security, privacy and system reliability. Windows 8 reduces the memory footprint needed — even on the lowest-end hardware — leaving more room for your apps. Preserving power-user favorites and making them better. For those who push the limits oftheir PC, Windows 8 features an enhanced Task Manager and Windows Explorer and new, flexible options for multimonitor setups.

New Developer Opportunities

The Windows Store will allow developers to sell their apps anywhere Windows is sold worldwide, whether they’re creating new games or familiar productivity tools. Build using more languages. Windows 8 lets you leverage your existing skills and code assets to create great experiences using the programming language you prefer. Rich hardware integration leads to richer experiences —particularly for games. DirectX 11 gaming power underlies Windows 8, allowing the easy creation of full-screen games with smooth, flicker-free action.

New Generation of Hardware

Support forARM-basedchipsets, x86- (as well as x32 and x64) devices, touch and sensors means Windows 8 works beautifully across a spectrum of devices, from 10-inch tablets and laptops to all-in-ones with 27-inch high-definition screens. With Windows 8, new ultrathin PCs and tablets turn on instantly,run all day on a single charge and stay connected to the Internet so yourPC is ready when you are. Next-generation system on a chip (SoC) support will also enable greatly extended standby and low-power states. Tap the full power of your PC. Windows 8 runs on PCs andis compatible withthe devices and programs you use today on Windows 7, without compromise, to deliver the performance you expect ofa PC.
