Windows 8: Good for laptops and tablets

Bookmark and Share

Microsoft recently held its Conference generation, an only developer event in which the highlight was the revelation of Windows 8. Was not exactly a reveal shock; There has been a lot of information about Windows 8 available in fragments, but this was Microsoft first peek under the curtain at the heart of Windows 8, Yes. As expected, expected Windows 8 to run faster than their predecessors, but then, the very unlikely Microsoft reveal that it would be slower. Emerged from a lot of small details, such as the fact that NFC (near field communications) support will be built in Windows 8, as most simple configurations for updating a system before selling, elimination of more efficient malware and modernization of some sections of the user interface of standard Windows like Task Manager. Cloud synchronization and a very Apple application as warehouse for Windows will also feature with applications in the desktop client complete, which at first glance seems a lot like Windows 7 does now. That might well change, but much of the meat real what Microsoft had to wear was seen in how you can adapt Windows 8 for the Tablet PC market.

Microsoft had leanings in the Tablet PC market for years, but outside of certain specialized niches, has never had much success - especially in the age of the iPad. Windows 8 has a lot of Tablet PC- features specific, including a user interface complete tablet called Metro Microsoft showed at the Conference to build on a Samsung supplied tablet that all attendees arrived to take with them. Microsoft built on the ideas of interface first taught with its Windows Phone 7 devices, and the results are quite spectacular. Also worth noting that while Windows Tablet PCs to date have all run on Intel hardware, Windows 8 will also run on ARM processors more efficient energy, although there will be compensation for arm models, which do not run legacy Windows applications, only the specialized touchscreen the. If at any time launches Windows 8 will be able to make dent in iPads near dominance of the Tablet PC market remains to be seen; a good half dozen Android Tablet PCs had failed, and the rest seem to be bogged down in legal battles with Apple.

Microsoft has not announced a timeline for when Windows 8 will be sent (except to say that I am sending you "when it is done"); at a guess I would say would be lucky enough to see it in stores and on laptops, desktops and Tablets earlier to less than half of next year.
