Windows 8 is here folks! It’s the latest and the greatest operating system (OS) from Microsoft. It has wowed many of us and for few it is not a major upgrade. Windows 8 sure has a lot of new features.
Some of them are:
- Support for both x86 PCs and ARM tablets
- Touch-centric, Tiles-based User Interface (UI)
- Snap Multi-tasking
- Much easier Windows 8 Control Panel
- Web Navigation by Touch
- Two Touch Keyboards
- Enhanced Copy Experience
- Native USB 3.0 Support
- Better Support for Multiple Monitors
- Better Graphics Hardware Acceleration
- Metro UI
- Microsoft Account Integration
- Fast Boot Time
- SkyDrive Integration
- New Task Manager
- Improved Malware Protection
Seems like a lot has changed and in fact it has! But it doesn’t mean you will notice all the changes. If you are a tech savy, you will surely see a lot of changes but if you are just a basic user, you won’t like the new interface at least for a month or so. Upgrading to Windows 8 is suitable for those people who are upgrading their PC itself (with TouchScreen featured Monitors). Windows 8 is optimized for touch screen monitors. If you want to make the most out of your Windows 7 make sure you have got a touch screen Monitor. Also, you will need a active Internet connection all the time to use its premium features. Although the minimum requirement of Windows 8 is same as that of Windows 7, you may want to have a high spec PC to enjoy all the features of Windows 8.
If you have a old Windows 8 PC which has low specs and uses a non-touchscreen PC, then trust me, you won’t enjoy much of Windows 8. The touchscreen optimization itself will trouble you. It will look funny to use your mouse as a finger input to swipe through different Windows panel. Windows 8 uses a lot of gestures and touch options which will surely trouble you.It’s certainly not going to be worth spending 100’s of dollar for just upgrading to Windows 8.
