    Very cool, wonderful design. However, I think your smart menu system needs a little refinement, for example a border or something to let you know where it the edge of the menu is.

    I think one thing shown in this mockup that Microsoft should heavily consider is the fact that the customization options can sometimes make Windows look ugly, thanks to poor design choices by the user.

    Many people pick an ugly wallpaper and sometimes OEMs put ugly commercial wallpapers on, and the window color clashes and the transparency is not well done and sometimes used in the wrong places throughout Windows 8, which is clashing so much as it is with the fight between aero and metro.

    What I like about this mockup is that the transparent aspects (if any in Windows 9) should have a desaturated dark background, or light background. I think OS X Yosemite does this well, and unfortunately it took Apple trying to pull off a Microsoft aero move, to show Microsoft what their transparency vision should have been in the first place.

    That, combined with a nice wallpaper that's not too busy and not too plain with great color, really sells this design.

    Clean, connected, efficient.

    Well i like apples new transparent and blurred concept, but i don't think windows should focus on heavily blurred theme,i am sure they use more CPU and GPU,

    The concept of metro is good, but they have implemented it awfully.

    Wallpaper is a choice by user, leave it to them.

    The mockup i made is a example of how Windows 8 should have been, especially the accent color should have been a part of the desktop.

    I will post some of my new mockups when i have more time.

    Suggest me some good wallpaper, i will be happy to add them

    Nice concept demos! I'm getting a bit of XP nostalgia mixed with windows 8 when I look at the images.

    I think there needs to be a liitle more modern UI love:

    What I would like to see in windows 9 concept.

    In desktop:
    Bigger buttons, I mean everything (close window, minimize, maximize, window bars, menu items etc.)

    In modern UI:

    further refinement of the charms bar.

    In app search back to the charm bar

    Login in the charmsbar.

    Live interactive tiles in the modern UI

    Currently the live tile options are only 1x1, 2x2, 2x4 and 4x4. Would be nice if there were other live tile sizes; 2x1, 1x2, 4x2, 8x8.

    Would be nice if there was an option for transparant live tiles in the modern, UI, just like windows phone.

    Deeper stylus functionality in the modern UI:
    -just like the hover menu in the samsung galaxy note series.
    - option for inline stylus input in search and internet adress bars.
    -option for inline stylus input and ink-to-text recogntion in the email and calendar app
    -notetaking note just by selecting the wacom stylus on the screen for instant notetaking and instantly have the option to save the note either directly as a live tile or as a file. Option to directly attach that note to onenote or an email (could be done via charms bar. Option to paste screen or web snippets to an instant note with the option to paste it with various degree of rotation within that note.

    would be nice if microsoft could make offlice apps for the modern UI.

    would be nice if cortana could be offered as an option. Currently only english and chinese is supported. Untill most other languages are supported, it's best microsoft keeps working on cortana for windows on a later release with full interational language support as a fact, rather than a possibility.

    the file menu in the modern UI needs a functionality upgrade. With many pictures and files the preview icons are too small, with no option to see larger previews. The only way to do it not is to multitask between the file explorer in the desktop and the file explorer in the modern UI. That's a poor end-user experience.
    The whats next function in the modern UI calendar app needs an upgrade. It's only a background image and a small handful of of calender items in the bottom part of the screen as a horizontal scrollbar. Why not use the whole screen real estate? Why not an option to drag and drop calender items to change them to a later time or date?

    Everything is well and good in ur concept,but I don't like how the title bar looks in file explorer and the back button, it doesn't match with your overall file explorer, it feels out of place make it more modern like in office 2013 or Zune.

    I don't know who is working at MS in design department they have the very great Zune at one side and worst design of desktop in windows 8 they should take clues from Zune it looks beautiful and works with touch too, they should make universal apps look like Zune in desktop.

    His concept is nice but i dont think windows should have transparent aspects other than the task bar. if it does it should be a flat transparent darkish colour.

    the window for the explorer should be one flat colour no transparent aspects.... the cortana i dont like , the back and forward buttons are not modern like its too big but most of the UI was done right.

    i like the task bar more than whats in windows now but ill take a stab at doing my own mockup ....

    you are in the right track but what u need to do is think what would MS do for modern UI 2.0 and add a bit more flavor too it

    well i like the transparent effect on windows and i am sure a lot of people would agree with me, but it can be optional, and leave it to user to decide.

    aero is dead, it takes too much cpu power(or gpu), but for higher end hardware it should be optional. some people love it, and it is one of the reason people loved win7.

    Explorer is fully flat (except the icon shadow). I love the shadow effects, see the apple's new design they are marvellous. Currently windows is too flat(see the wp), fonts are either too big or too small to read, accent color is a joke, and the start menu for win 8.1 is biggest flaw. This design represent what windows 8 should have been from the start, a desktop pc, no tablet. and also not fully flat not fully ugly 3d, but a beautiful blending of this two option.

    as for cortana, i agree with you, it needs a complete makeover, but hey it is still in beta ;)

    the back and forward button are taken from IE11, and it looks good, and yes the buttons are big for a reason, hope you know it by now (......touch).... and it does not look bad at all.

    modern UI 2.0 and add a bit more flavor too it
    what is modern ui 2.0???? flavour?? a new wallpaper should probably do the trick :)

    LOL the buttons are big for a reason yes but to me i just don't like it ..

    i would stick to this or some variation of it and apply your accent colour on it too keep with the design.

    seems like MS is thinking along your train of thought ... i takes me a while to appreciate stuff so i keep coming back to your post to see what i like or whats grown and mostly u got it right as i said before.

    What i like .
    - Using accent colours in the explorer UI for the back / forward buttons and other elements is an excellent touch.
    - The left side with favorite,s libraries and this computer yada yada is again well done wont change it in fact MS should just steal that as is.
    - the drop shaddow effect is nice.
    - The frame less window design i like as well
    - I love your icons its flat, sticks to one colour with some hints of accent colours if needed MS should look into doing some icons like that.
    - I like the counters for the apps the circle with the number in it. (i did this for my windows phone edit i think windows needs more accent circles as i like to call them.
    - Xbox music i love one or two minor changes needed. *it should replace windows media player*
    - The app switcher is cool.
    - Start is cool but i think you have a better one up your sleeve.

    What could change.
    - I said your shadows are nice but too me too exaggerated. i like what Google has done with their shadows one flat colour transparent grey maybe you can do that along with a short fade at the end so its flat with a hint of chrome to keep the UI flat without being stale ???
    also the MSN preview site has it as well.
    asa.png
    on closer inspection its a fade but a very short one that looks kinda flat ....
    - In the explorer windows you have videos with extra above it in blue it looks good but coming near to videos you added a gradient fade which is considered chrome. i would stick to the transparent blue colour with the solid dark blue dash above to give emphasis.
    ** if you insist on the fade i would have it less prominent I.E small faster fade.
    - Minimize, Maximize and Close buttons i would have them colour less like what MS has in their most recent leak of Windows 9. Only when one hovers they get their accent color or red in the case of close.

    buttons.png
    buttons2.png

    - I would have the stars for rating a yellow orange colour.
    - xbox music i would move the media scrubber bar above the controls bar, play rewind and forward should be the windows standard icons enclosed in circles that looks appealing to me idk why and last the scrubber bar is too bright a green in my eyes but that's not an issue.
    - i really wanna like the control panel but sumthing about it screams no to me i rather the PC settings MS has if they added all control panel stuff and maybe some flat colourful icons like what you designed. but your design is well executed.
    - rework the file or explorer icon.

    What i miss.
    - The blue highlight on file on the extreme left.
    - differentiation of the search / file path bar.

    what i want you to consider.

    in the leaked images and videos we see two need flat icons next to start search and the new scene (multidesktop mode) icon ...
    my train of though if MS put search there i'm thinking it can be ripped out of explorer completely so if i'm in an explorer window it would search inside of the window in that location. but if i have no windows open it would open up a general search UI that pools local content, online results and stuff from within your / a companies network / intranet. just a thought like context aware search.

    i would like to see your take on MS notification center. (im thinking a bit of notification tiles / cards like what i did with WP see image).

    overall MS could learn from you and this dude kgbstyle (phyek) on deviantART.
