Microsoft has finally taken the wraps off of the upcoming Windows 8 which is due out in 2012 and I must say there are some amazing innovations. Using a new HTML5 driven application development, Microsoft has shown that it is definitely willing and able to compete in the current and future market. Developing an operating system that can easily run on both standard desktops and laptops as well as tablets is something that only Microsoft would tackle, and looking at the preview of Windows 8, it looks like they are headed in the right direction.
Of course, all the old familiar Windows apps will still work which makes it even better – the ability to use the programs that people are used to, combined with the new cutting edge technology that enhances our ability to consume and produce information just about anywhere.
Following is a video from Microsoft which highlights some of the new features they are working on for Windows 8:
Pensacola Computers has been Microsoft Beta Testers since 2002 and was heavily involved in both Windows Vista and Windows 7 development – we are expecting to be fully involved in the testing for Windows 8 and will be able to help individuals and organizations with any questions in the upcoming months.
