The early design changes tell us that Microsoft will likely be looking for further inspiration for Windows 8 from its mobile and office software — and perhaps elsewhere as well. Windows 7, for the most part, looks like a more polished version of the much reviled Vista. Now it seems like Microsoft may be aiming for a fresh start in Windows 8.
