Microsoft Analyzing Linux To Improve Windows 8

Microsoft has it’s own team to analyze competing operating systems, such as Linux and Mac.

They also research new features by analyzing other systems and user feedback. One of the major key elements will be a completely new GUI.

On a Linkedin Profile it reads:

I work with other User Experience Directors and User Experience Designers deciding on successful feature possibilities by analyzing competing operating systems (Mac and Linux). Research customer reactions to these features in Windows 8 themes and planning for long-term products such as Windows 9 User Interfacing.

You can find this on “Ming Yun-Fat Chow’s” Linkedin profile. Ming Yun is a Manager of Windows 8 User Interface Designers at Microsoft:

Managing and Improving software usability for over 10 years, designing, researching, and developing multi-tier distributed applications for Windows 8 focusing on customers using ecommerce, general consumers, and banking companies.

Unsurprisingly, many of the Linkedin profiles that give us a little insight into Windows 8 have been removed.

Further on, I found this on Ming Yun’s profile:

Ming Yun-Fat Chow’s Summary

Managing and Improving software usability for over 10 years, designing, researching, and developing multi-tier distributed applications for Windows 8 focusing on customers using ecommerce, general consumers, and banking companies.

So, Microsoft will continue to split Windows into groups. Is that a first clue that we will see a Windows 8 Professional again? Probably.

I don’t think they want to confuse us again by adding new Windows 8 editions.
