Windows 8 - Desktop Edition by RVanhauwere Windows 8 - Desktop Edition by RVanhauwere
Note: this is a concept.


This is my revised and fixed version of how Windows 8 could have looked like if Microsoft made a seperate edition of Windows 8 for desktops, where you get the new metro theme and still have the start menu: on the left you have a vertical group of live tiles you have recently used and on the right you can navigate to folders. The 'user' icon has been moved to the taskbar (down right), when you click it user options will come up, which include the ability to manage other accounts, swith to another account, change your user picture, and many others.

Just wondering: why are there 2 Power buttons?
Other than that, a great idea! Send it to Microsoft!

yeah definitely agree. The should have focused more on metrnizing and adding new features and visuals to the desktop in a separate os version for mouse users.

BTW Ive start to metronize all the cool software icons out there. Ill make them systematically, releasing big pack for each software category. Ive started "bashfully" with 3D software field. They came out awesome and ultimate quality Check them here [link]

Now Im focused on Office , Productivity, OCR, Desktop publishing stuff

Integrating Windows 8 Mobile Phone Interface is an amazing idea. Would love it on my desktop.

I like this start button and menu concept. It don't break the aesthetics of Windows 8 like so many others do.

This is an amazing concept, with Aero back on the default interface. If Windows 8 have this interface, surely sell more.
