Designer Reinvented a Stunning Windows XP for 2018
Windows users have had the Windows XP interface for nearly two decades at this point, and during that time, it's evolved to accommodate various designs. However, a few things just don't change, and fans of the Windows XP system certainly have their favorite elements. One such fan is Kamer Kaan Avdan's redesign of the Windows XP system for 2018.
The imaginative video only lasts one minute and 30 seconds, but it's enough to pack in a ton of unique ideas. Avadan throws in extensive contemporary styles throughout the welcome screen and the window toolbars. He also adds the Windows 10 app search experience.
Avdan also isn't afraid to bring back some classic elements of previous Microsoft iterations. Rather than Cortana's simple circle, Avdan uses a throwback of Rover -- the animated dog from Microsoft -- to fill in as the internal AI's avatar.
A 15-year-old study led by the Carnegie Institution for Science has cataloged the origins and diversity of every known mineral on Earth, like never before. It could help reconstruct the history of life.
