The Microsoft Corporation has come up with its new generation Operating System, to be named Windows 8. The system can be used in a desktop, a laptop and in tablets. The OS has, in its own terms raised the standard of experiencing a desktop or a laptop.
The very first difference one would notice in the Windows 8 OS is the Start menu. To make it even easier for the touch screen laptops or desktop users and tablet owners as well, the programs appear in tabular forms. This upgrade in the interface is obviously very welcome. This update will be providing you information on the fly. To cite an example, one can say that the email tile would be offering a summary on the latest emails received, on the tile itself. It is upon you if you wish to rearrange the tiles depending upon how often they are used.
The Windows 8 OS is also equipped with the Windows Store, which would mean that you should have a chance to purchase applications from your computer itself. Moreover, you can avail a number of applications for no cost at all. The ones, which are to be bought, are inexpensive.
When the Windows 7 was launched, there was not as significant a change in the interface, as it has been in the Windows 8 OS. One might need a bit of time to get accustomed to it. The windows 8 programs do not appear on the task bar. These programs are tablet ready and they run in their own particular full screens. When you wish to switch to the windows 8 applications, you would just require tapping at the right corner of the screen and making your selection. A standard application will run in a familiar window style.
However, in spite of all these updates, there are still a few things that are desired. When you are running a number of programs, you might find it difficult to locate ant one of them. Moreover, if the user is not the owner of a touch screen and instead has a multi touch pad, many operations wouldn’t be supported. The techies will have a hard time to realize that Microsoft has become all the more unclear with the descriptions. For instance, while installation you would be receiving a particular status update, mentioning, “Doping some stuff please wait”. However, what we would actually like to know is what the stuff you are doing is.
However, in spite of these matters, it might be suggested that Windows 8 would be worthy investment. But, one must remember that there is no guarantee of the upgrade version. Its performance would depend.
Every program would eventually get installed, however while sometimes it would boot and sometimes it wouldn’t. It might stop working at all. The best thing would be to put up a back up and reinstall it afresh. It can be expected of Windows 8 to give a better experience.
