Microsoft® drops ‘Aero Glass’ User Interface in Windows® 8
Dubbing the ‘Aero Glass’ User Interface as “chessy” and “dated, software giant Microsoft Corporation has announced that it is abandoning the User Interface from Windows 8. The interface made its debut in Windows Vista and continued in Windows 7.
In a long 11,300-word blog post, Jensen Harris, the director of program management for Windows 8′s user experience team, said that the new operating system’s look-and-feel, its graphics user interface, or GUI, would be “clean and crisp”, and would do away with the “glass and reflections” that marked Aero.
Windows 8 will instead move to incorporate the new ‘Metro’ user interface. Windows 8 is designed from the ground up for a touchscreen experience. The Metro UI is familiar from the Windows Phone mobile operating system, and is particularly well-suited to touchscreen devices like a wide range of Windows 8 tablets that are expected to debut later this year after the release of Windows 8 OS is announced officially.
