“We (…) showed effortless movement between existing Windows programs and new Windows 8 apps. The full capabilities of Windows continue to be available to you, including the Windows Explorer and Desktop, as does compatibility with all Windows 7 logo PCs, software and peripherals,” Larson-Green stated.

The demo included the new Windows 8 Start Screen, Live Tiles, Immersive apps, examples of the new HTML5 / JavaScript and CSS application platform in action, NUI capabilities, Internet Explorer 10, etc.

“Although the new user interface is designed and optimized for touch, it works equally well with a mouse and keyboard,” Larson-Green revealed.

“Our approach means no compromises — you get to use whatever kind of device you prefer, with peripherals you choose, to run the apps you love. This is sure to inspire a new generation of hardware and software development, improving the experience for PC users around the world.”
