Windows 8 Modern UI is AOL 1996 UI [Proof]
Windows 8 was unveiled by Microsoft on 29 February 2012 with Windows 8 Developer Preview. It got bug fixes and more till it upgraded to Consumer Preview, then to Release Preview and the finally to RTM which is the retail version
Modern UI was in use on the Windows Phone 7 with the name Metro UI. Many tech geeks love the UI a lot as it is so simple to use and mainly focused on Touch Based Devices. It was then brought to Windows 8 to start a new generation of Ultrabooks and Tablets.
AOL was released long ago as a website. Today we have noticed that the UI of AOL’s site in 1996 was the Modern User Interface. This was a shocking news for me. This means Windows Modern UI was in use from 1996 and if it was used in 1996 then it would have been released even earlier.
See the compare of the “Kids Only” AOL in 1996 and Windows 8 Start Screen in 2012
So we have the History back. Modern UI will be the main Interface till Microsoft Develops a new UI which I think would take more than a decade or even two ad people do not accept changes easily and Microsoft wants customers so they have to listen to the demand.
So Are you happy that History is back or you are sad that Microsoft uses the old AOL UI in Windows 8 by making some changes like graphics and more.
