Take a look at what Windows 8 looked like during its early mockup stage (picture)
Curious to see what Windows 8 looked like during its early years? Back in 2010, which was about a year after the release of Windows 7 and the same year the Apple iPad was released, Microsoft held an internal "vision day" to unify the new vision of all Windows team designers. This resulted in the first mockups of Windows 8, codename Pocahontas. Check it out and notice how some features made it to the release of Windows 8 while others were radically re-designed (i'm looking at you Charms Bar!). Hit the source link for more images.
