Windows 8 Developer Preview: The “Start Menu”


Start Menu is in quotations because it’s received a complete redesign.  It appears to have been completely replaced with the new “tiles” (aka Metro UI). Which fairs a striking resemblance to Windows Phone 7, hmm, wonder why?   Windows Phone 7 was highly based of the Zune interface, and now is seeking relations with Windows 8.

Here is the first screen you’ll run into. Like it or not, it’s here to stay.

Here are some of the “Apps” Microsoft has included in this Developer Preview.

So far, so good, but these are some awfully odd Apps to include: 

And this is the end of that screen, but never fret! I will be running some of the Apps and putting up even more of the Screenshots on this site! So stay tuned
