Microsoft Planning To Integrate Metro UI With Windows 8

Posted Aug 31, 2011

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows chief Steven Sinofsky has written on the Windows 8 blog about how the company is planning to keep two interfaces for Windows’ desktop user interface and the phone/tablet-friendly Metro user interface.

Some of you are probably wondering how these parts work together to create a harmonious experience. Are there two user interfaces? Why not move on to a Metro style experience everywhere? On the other hand, others have been suggesting that Metro is only for tablets and touch, and we should avoid ?dumbing down? Windows 8 with that design.

Microsoft plans on giving a more detailed preview at the Microsoft Build developer conference in September.
