Microsoft was among the first software companies to bring a graphical interface to file management. With Windows 8, users will be able to navigate through files with touches, drags, swipes and pinches.
The new user interface works particularly well with photos, which can be automatically synced with your other PCs as well as cloud-based services like Facebook and Flickr. That means photos uploaded to Facebook or stored on another computer will immediately populate on all of that user's Windows 8 devices.
Windows 8 is coming soon -- and it looks nothing like the Windows you're used to.
