Windows 10 Design Changes?!
The changes in Project Neon will be seen throughout Windows 10, MSPowerUser has examples in Outlook Mail, Calendar and says the taskbar will change in future as well. While there’s more significant response to simple actions like a mouse pointer passing over different elements of the UI.
Furthermore, despite the preview build, the early word is the new animations and effects are extremely smooth. Though there’s no information yet regarding the power requirements/performance hit involved.
Needless to say, until the alterations are part of an official final release much could change. When will that release be? MSPowerUser says the first alterations will appear in the (horribly named) ‘Creators Update’, which follows last year’s (equally horribly named) ‘Anniversary Update’. Seriously Microsoft, what’s wrong with Windows 10.1 and 10.2?
The Creators Update will appear in April with a full rollout of Project Neon not due until ‘Redstone 3’ (which Microsoft won’t sensibly call Windows 10.3) in the latter half of 2017. But from what we see here, good things come to those who wait…
