Microsoft is set to release an entirely new version of their Windows operating system. This time around Microsoft has “code named” the OS “Windows 8″. Microsoft has officially announced that the next generation operating system is set to be publicly launched sometime in 2013. But what did Microsoft decide to do with Windows 8 that’s different from Windows 7?
The coolest thing about Windows 8 is that it will look and feel totally different from any previous Windows version. Even with Windows 7 the feel was close to every other version of Windows. With Windows 8, users can expect to interact with a new interface similar to that of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 “Dashboard”. The interface will seem and appear “bubbly” and critics who have demo’d the new OS have all agreed that standard users will enjoy a much richer and more enjoyable, user friendly experience.
As far as technologists, advanced users, and experts go – maybe sticking with Windows 7 would be a good choice. However, the new OS hasn’t been officially released which means Microsoft may still choose to incorporate advanced user features and options, and perhaps sell an “elite” or “pro” version of the new Windows operating system.
