Abstract

In July, 2013, Windows 8, an operating system as innovative as it is disjointed, turned the computing world upside down with a boldly reimagined user experience that focused on touch as a first-class citizen. Windows 8 introduced us to the start screen, the charms bar, tiles, and dedicated full screen applications. For many, this was a dream come true, a fast and fluid version of Windows with far fewer hardware requirements, a beautiful touch-first user interface complete with fluid, intuitive edge-driven interaction patterns, and access to the legacy desktop when needed for running old-school Win32 applications.
