If you still don’t want to stop using Windows 7, the next operating from Microsoft code named Treshold which is probably a code name for Windows 9 is then meant for you.
This operating system will be coming in three modes – desktop, tablet and mobile, and it will feature possibility to recognize your hardware in order to adjust user experience according to the platform.
So if you are using the traditional desktop configuration with mouse and keyboard, the Treshold will start in the Windows desktop mode.
Start screen with metro interface will be available to users who are starting Windows 9 on the devices who are touch sensitive like tablets, but there will be an option to transfer from tablet to desktop mode once the OS detects attached keyboard.
We are expecting that the Windows 9 will be launched next spring, and the public will probably have the opportunity to see some of the new stuff it brings, already during the fall.
