Dear Microsoft, please hire this guy!

That’s assuming “Sputnik8” is a guy. A couple of days ago, he (or she) posted a series of Windows UI concept designs on The Verge. They’re chock-full of elegant new interface ideas, yet they clearly build on existing Microsoft design conventions, most notably “Metro“. Despite (possibly unintentionally) using Ubuntu’s default color scheme, they show a possible direction for Windows. And I love it.

I think it looks amazing. Windows 7, despite its design “fresh-up” in my opinion looks outdated and lacks a certain elegance. It works, the new taskbar is just enough of an improvement, the overall stability is now pretty good, but there’s nothing to really love. A redesign like this could finally make Windows a truly desirable platform. Not just the reliable way to launch programs (that runs well on cheap hardware), but something users would enjoy working with. So please Redmond, do this. Do this now.

  1. This is way too good for Microsoft, still I would love this. I myself run on XP, but my cousin upgraded to 7. In fact I was disappointed when I saw the newest version. So dumb…
