Hahaha, thanks for the laugh!

 

To the OP; nice way of blending in Mac menu, windows 8 icons and keeping the glass UI. Looks a bit bloated tho. Nice try!

It's just a rough concept, I'll probably keep tweaking it (mostly at the top).

If i were to make a Windows 9 concept, I would make one that had some chance of being released.

Not bad. But for me personally, the top bar needs to go. Maybe move the wifi/speaker icons over to the right where they should be, an condense the skype/xbox stuff down to the bottom bar? Also the explorer window has way too much wasted space for a file manager to be usable on a day to day basis.

I'm confused as to what I'm looking at. There's no clear definition... of anything on this concept.

Everything... What I mean is, you've thrown everything at the screen.  Bits from every OS - it's crowded, cluttered and there is no cohesion between it all.

Hello,

 

I just swallowed my barf. How are you doing today?

Visually it's rather unappealing, in large part due to the dark colour scheme. The Explorer mock-up is just horrible. The only aspect I like is the use of square tiles for applications on the taskbar.

I'm a PC and I hope some of these aesthetic/functional elements from my Windows 9 concept carry over to the real thing. 

 

Please leave any feedback.

edit:  Added some changes to second pic.  

 

 

There's a lot going on at the top.  How about taking that and aligning it to the left hand side, have it Auto hide, and make an arrow so that people who aren't as Tech Savvy will know that there is something there.

I'm so sorry if it's bad...it's my first concept piece.  Just wanting some constructive feedback from everyone.  

Thanks.  :)

Hmmm...Scrap it. Start over. Yes, the whole thing is a regurgitation. No offense :)

Looks like an XP theme from about 2004.

Hint. When you demo your concept, use a background that people can see the entire screen.  Black background hides the concept.  Black background with a gray task bar is a no-no also.  Your concept scatter all over the screen.  Simplify the modularity and keep colors in check.

after looking back at it, it does looks a bit...off.

So... The titlebar is invisible? The whole concept is still too busy. Microsoft would never include Explorer backgrounds that would add unnecessary visual clutter. This concept doesn't even follow the basic Windows 8 design guidelines, let alone any other guidelines that I know of. Screen elements are too tiny to be of any use to anything but a mouse (remember, Microsoft is pushing for more neutral input methods). Also, multiple desktops are a concept that is most likely never coming to Windows.

Ok, that was a failure lol.

Wasn't expecting such bad reception, but thanks for all the input.  

 

I think I'll just stick to doing other, non-concept stuff lol.

Can I suggest:  These are just photoshops of random elements.  Not a concept.  A concept relied upon an architecture, an idea.  Start with that and evolve it - don't just take "Nice features" from other OS's and put them together.
