Even with a steady amount of leaks concerning the next version of Windows, the UI of the operating system is still a mystery. This Windows 9 concept tries to nudge us towards a dreamy looking design.
Several designers have imagined the new features and overall look of the upcoming operating system, and this latest set of images comes from IamFrank, showing a refreshed Modern UI with plenty of icons, a new color scheme and lots and lots of transparency.
Oh, and lots and lots of transparency, in case you did not notice the first time around.
It is very appealing, sure, and even though it will not be too hard for Redmond to create something similar, the chances of this happening are very slim — transparent menus and glossy interface elements are not for everyone.
Still, you can take in the delight of this design below. A full gallery of 10 images is available for your viewing please. Simply click on the screenshots to open them up in a larger view.
And although we have heard nothing that corroborates it, but there is every chance that Windows 9 will come with notable changes to the interface. Almost all previous (major) versions of the operating system had their own distinct look that was different from their preceding release.
Till then, Windows 9 concept images like this will tide us through.
What do you folks think of these new concepts? Bold? Too much gloss, too little functionality? Or are there some good elements in the images above that Microsoft could implement.
