Windows 8

Windows 8

I would say Windows 8 is vividly amazing and I guess will be the future operating system. Why? Obviously, Microsoft have already predicted the fast-pace, low-cost and now widely accepted touch-screen technology from smartphones, machine interface, and now smart-TV’s. It is clear enough that they expanding out not only to Personal Computer Operating System but to all-in-one OS that will have the ability to communicate each other. Isn’t this what Apple is doing? 😀

Microsoft Windows 8 feature is not really a total new innovation at all. In fact, this kind of technology already exist in our everyday life – in our smartphones. The “slide to open” features, metro ui, windows 8 cloud connection, windows store, and apps (applications) were already in use for quite some time. In my opinion, Windows 8 is basically just an upgrade to my smartphone Windows OS7. Hehe..

One thing for sure, Windows 8 was specifically built for on touch-enabled PCs. If you don’t the have a touch-screen monitor,  then I suggest you stay in Windows 7. Anyway, for those who want to try Windows 8, you may download the consumer preview or the developer version for FREE. Check links below
