Microsoft Doubles Down on Modern UI with Windows Blue
Still stuck in this century? Microsoft is definitely doubling down on the Modern UI enhanements found in Windows 8, with more consistency for areas like "PC Settings", that often lacked the desktop-based Control Panel settings. Consistent with this emphasis on touch screen compatibility is the capability to resize tiles, move them around differently, share stuff from Modern UI apps like you've been able to do on Android OS for the last five years, and they've even included a calculator.
The leak being discussed hit the Internet globally as Windows Build 9364 and includes Internet Explorer 11. Windows Blue: a video preview of what's next for Windows 8 | The Verge
Stuck with a 70:000 to 1 contrast ratio flat screen monitor and don't know why you'd need a touch screen-enabled system? Me neither! There is a company called CycloTouch that will let you turn your existing monitor into a touch screen monitor. Of course, depending on monitor size, you'd likely need to fork over anywhere from $600-$1000 USD. The technology uses infrared sensors, as long as you have your industrial-level double sided adhesive tape on hand.
