I give the image 10 out of 10 stars. I'd use this OS.
We all know what Windows 10 will look like on it's release in the fall of 2015. We know how it will operate because of their Jan 21 conference. And how it supports Microsoft's new Cortana chat bot along with DirectX-12 virtual goggles. But is everything set in stone? Is Microsoft tightening up and closing their senses to the spectacular visual concepts of p0isonParadise and his community? What will StarDock WindowBlinds bring to the table, and are third party utilities the only way to have your way with Windows? It's 2015 and Linux is still a niche OS only a few use. OSX is crawling along with a minimal code base and limited devices. Only Android and iPhones have amazing huge app stores. Windows only recently got an app store, and personally I find it cumbersome and counter-productive.
Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for Windows 7 and 8.1, for one year. Do we pay for it after that year..? Some say Windows 10 will be the last version, as version numbers will no longer be used. There may likely be a streaming-video version simply called Bing OS. Microsoft shy's away from it's dorky past as it reinvents itself for the next generation.
Next generation means better, faster, stronger, all those qualities Daft Punk drilled into our skulls. What qualities? AERO. BLUR. The glow of natural glass as we saw it in Windows 7. The fluid movement of menus. the sharp direct connection we have with our intimate files. Microsoft may have flattened the visual AERO glass look out of Windows 10, but I say it's time to bring it back. It's time to let digitally-savvy artists enlighten our file navigation.
Windows 10 Final Preview by p0isonParadise, is one of many looks into how an OS can be organic, contemporary, clean, fun, light hearted, and most importantly: Let's us get work done professionaly and instantly. The multi-tabs in the image are a must-have feature. This clean yet informative art allows you to work while not losing track of your desktop art. Seeing the desktop slideshow through your work-flow, helps relax the mind. Soft glowing backdrops to your folders, with sharp organized edges, feel like you're in a exoric car rather than a mess of Microsoft code. It feels more "Bing" and less "Bill Gates".
What I'd like to see happen with this image, is to be in 4K download size. I like all icons to be one solid color. I'd like an optional rainbow-lense-flair when a window opens. I'd like to see more of what the Control Panel could do, I'd like to dive in and watch a video of this OS in use. Or at least a vector mock-up of what the OS would look like as windows overlapped and menus opened. I'd like a very very slight transparency, perhaps 10% to 20%, to the peach color background of a window. Perhaps a window can be 70% transparent in areas which have no text or labels, and 10 transparent where there is text to read. As if only opaque solid-colors where text must be read clearly and comfortably.
I'm going out on a branch here, but an OS should be integrated into your car, your home automation, your wardrobe and fridge, your various audio chat bots. Your OS is you. You are the AI and the OS is your toolbox. Windows 10 files often live in the "cloud", so cloud folders are a must.
Perhaps this is just me, but I'd love to see a 2 inch Britney Spears dancing on my start menu. It would be an opt-in feature, but she'd dance to my music and be my Cortana.
