Windows 8 Exclusive Video
Microsoft recently presented Windows 8 developer preview in which it showcased its future operating system which will be compatible with PCs, netbooks, laptops and even tablets. The new UI is called metro which has been built for supporting touch devices as well as other devices.
“We re-imagined Windows,” said Steven Sinofsky, president of the Windows and Windows Live Division at Microsoft, in his keynote address to the thousands of developers in attendance. “From the chipset to the user experience, Windows 8 brings a new range of capabilities without compromise.”
Let’s have a quick glance what Windows 8 has to offer
- Metro UI
- Full support for both touch and non-touch devices
- Applications communicate (e.g. photos can be mailed from a number of apps)
- App Store
- Sync with cloud
- Based on the reliability of Windows 7
- Supports ARM-based, x86, x32 & x64 chipsets
- Minimum battery consumption
- Same compatibility with hardware and programs as Windows 7
