Windows 8 will have a completely new interface. This has been confirmed by now. Rumors say that they will even replace the Windows Explorer with something totally new. Because the Windows 7 filesystem is very slow they also plan to include a brand new filesystem. Tests showed that the current Windows 7 filesystem is even slower than XP.
Windows 7 is using a lightweight kernel called “MinWin”, which will be used in Windows 8 as well. According to an interview with Eric Traut (Microsoft Engineer) the Windows kernel is by now 12-15 years old. It will have to be replaced at some point in time.
Not many know that Microsoft has been working on a completely new OS (for nearly two years now) that includes a brand new kernel and is written entirely in managed code (more secure).
