Windows 8 screenshots show off new user interface

Microsoft on Tuesday took the wraps off Windows 8, its forthcoming operating system for PCs and tablets, with the president of its Windows and Windows Live division describing it as a “reimagination of Windows”.

The new operating system, which is expected to make its debut in the first half of 2012, includes a redesigned user interface calls Metro, touch-browsing for tablets, a new browser in Internet Explorer 10, and a Windows Store for application purchases. (See accompanying story.)
