This maybe a step towards ‘unifying’ the interface in all of their upcoming devices
Win8China reports that the upcoming Windows 8 might have the classic ‘Windows Explorer’ changed to ‘File Explorer.’ Subtle changes are seen, as the upcoming Windows 8 is reaching close to the RTM (Release To Manufacturing) phase.
This maybe a step towards ‘unifying’ the interface in all of their upcoming devices, discussed last week in TechED 2012. Having a minimalist feel to it, Windows 8 may really shine on tablets. Full-screen interface (that gives priority to content over chrome) have replaced toolbars, start menus & other features.
It will be now interesting to see whether Microsoft changes the name other applications such as Windows Media Player, the Windows Update, the Windows Media Center, Windows Defender, Windows Journal, Windows Speech Recognition & the likes.
