It’s pretty clear that users expect a major visual revamp in Windows 9 and the plethora of concepts that reach the web these days are living proof that Microsoft must bring us improvements for both the desktop and the controversial touch screen.
This concept created by Martin Androvich already does this and turns Microsoft’s modern platform into a beautiful operating system that can be easily used on both desktop computers and tablets, while also addressing complaints over the lack of a Start Menu for example.
