Microsoft is all about Windows 10 these days, however it doesn’t suggest the world has already left out the prior Windows versions.
Even though a lot of people still love Windows 7 as well as Windows XP, Zee-Al-Eid Ahmad Rana, who already created several pretty cool concepts, decided to give Windows 98 a contemporary touch together with his very own facelift.
What exactly we have here is a Windows 98 refresh according to Fluent Design, the design language that Microsoft uses in Windows 10 and in several other products.
The concept imagines a redesign UI for many core Windows 98 components, including Windows Explorer, the Start menu, and Microsoft Edge (as a matter of fact, Microsoft Edge didn’t appear in the Windows 98 era; this is a browser that Microsoft produced for Windows 10, and Windows 98 shipped with Internet Explorer as the default browser).
The clean Start menu
Obviously, this can very well be only a skin for Windows 10 because, let’s be honest about it, really looks great. The Start menu itself is apt to be the one thing a lot of people love, especially thanks to its clean design which reminds from the Windows 7 version.
The Start menu has evolved in Windows 10, now coming with live tiles and other elements, but those upgrading from Windows 7 prefer to stick with a more simplified and cleaner look similar to the one in the 2009 operating-system.
After your day, it’s remember this case an idea and there’s basically no chance to determine something like that ever going live in Windows 10. Microsoft rarely uses these concepts as the supply of inspiration for its visual updates, even though the organization would actually do itself a favor to check out such ideas from time to time.
