    Looks very good in some areas. I think it needs the ability to scale and stack windows vertically, though, not just one after the other in a long line.

    Really nice idea. I hope Microsoft use some ot these concepts. There are some fantastic ones, even Windows Phone have stunning concepts.

    You could be a bit more accurate here. This has absolutely no connection to Microsoft, therefore, it is not a Windows 9 concept since Windows is both a registered trademark and copyrighted intellectual property. I believe they also registered Windows 9 a long time ago. In fact, use of Windows icons, the Windows flag/window logo (even in black), and failure to properly identify anywhere on the page as someone's personal vision (unrelated in any way to Microsoft) could net a cease and desist order from a Microsoft lawyer.

    The very bottom of the page shows it's someone's concept. How do you know this person hasn't sent this to MS? Could just be looking for a job, chill.

    Really don't like it. It looks like a mish mash of OSX, windows 7 and the new PS4 UI.

    It would NEVER work in the business world. That alone makes it DOA.

    Hmm.. so essentially this Windows 9 concept is Windows 8 with an apps dock?

    And is it just me or are all the "d"s and "b"s on the site larger than the rest of the characters?

    its good as a concept... nothing more.
    people complained about an improved start screen because "start men is better and start screen is not for pc users" (whatever that means), imagine if Microsoft changed totally everything like this concept suggests...

    a taskbar really? I can imagine Microsoft improving the way fast switch Works and App previews and such... but someone didnt get the memo that Fullscreen apps arent bad? why would I want to see icons all the time?
    and you know... I would rather Microsoft reverting back to "Windows 7" than and stay in desktop forever than that weird scroll through apps things just to say "Windows arent dead" (whatever that means... again)... and it would be for touch only... I can see how it wouldnt work well with mouse users, start screen is nice to scroll through it, but if you are in an App, and you want to change App... what are you gonna do? the purpose of this concept its to scroll trhough them, it sounds silly to go out of the App just to scroll to the other App, and lets hope the scroll doesnt actvate when you are over an App... but how you are going to use it fast enough if you have to go in an out of apps just to scroll through them?... I dont know.
    oh and what if my apps its the last one in the list? becuase they dont want icons or tiles to show... Microsoft will throw away all the workd they have done with live tiles and such. well it seems it wont even work with many apps installed... becuase you know... with only the apps that would come preinstalled it would take like 3 hours to scroll through those previews or whatever they are.

    again, not a bad concept but Im glad it will stay that way.
