On the net, in these hours, it has emerged a video of over two minutes published by the German site WinFuture showing how the Start menu works in the next version of Windows. As you can see, there is a mix of traditional software with new applications, complete with a Live Tile. The latter are placed on the right side, while the left one is more traditional. In the Start menu you can also see the account options, as well as the shutdown and restart options, located at the top rather than the bottom.

Everything seems well packaged to us, but it will be the experience of use to form a definitive judgment. In addition to the menu, Microsoft has in fact intervened on the possibility of opening Modern UI applications as traditional software, then move them to the desktop where you want and change the size of the window freely.


As for the debut of Windows 9 - which perhaps will simply be called Windows - we will have to wait until next year. Microsoft should distribute a Technical Preview at the end of the month or at the latest in early October, so that developers and enterprise customers can touch the most important changes, such as the ability to create and manage "virtual desktops" or the integration of a notification center from various applications.
