Video: preview Windows 8 – support for tablets

The tablet market is booming nowadays, but the Windows user is still waiting for tablet support. In the video below you can see that Microsoft is working on Windows 8 with tablets support. This version, which may be released next year, is intended to be used on tablets, laptops and desktops.

The tablet support appears to be a separate menu system with large square areas that have been laid over the original Windows system. At the end of the movie you can see that the familiar windows file system suddenly appears, plus the Excel spreadsheet. So the idea is to get the best of both worlds.

Wouldn’t it be cool to run your favourite music software for Windows on a tablet with touchscreen? Let’s hope the music software developers will take advantage of these interesting possibilities.
