    An early model for Microsoft's next operating system, codenamed Windows 8, was demonstrated very recently. It seems this latest permutation is set to largely imitate the way in which mobile device systems operate. 'App' tiles to replace program icons and the expansion of touch screen operations appear to be a certainty.

    In many ways it makes perfect sense for Microsoft to take full advantage of the burgeoning mobile device market and make the latest OS more appealing for 'younger' consumers. Which is exactly what they will achieve if Windows 8 is a natural extension of the systems already being utilised in tablets and high end cell phones.

    Here is a Windows 8 preview video which has been put together by Jensen Harris, the Director of Program Management for Windows:
