Everyone knows how important Windows 8 is, not just to Microsoft but the world enterprise world. The OS which is billed to be released next year will be the first full-blown version of Windows that will be able to run on the non-Intel Corp. processors that go into today’s tablet computers, like the iPad. That could help Microsoft catch up in this nascent market, which is starting to make a dent in PC sales. Here is the preview of Windows 8 from Microsoft.
A Windows 8-based PC is really a new kind of device, one that scales from touch-only small screens through to large screens, with or without a keyboard and mouse.
And this isn’t just about touch PCs. The new Windows experience will ultimately be powered by application and device developers around the world — one experience across a tremendous variety of PCs. The user interface and new apps will work with or without a keyboard and mouse on a broad range of screen sizes and pixel densities, from small slates to laptops, desktops, all-in-ones, and even classroom-sized displays. Hundreds of millions of PCs will run the new Windows 8 user interface. This breadth of hardware choice is unique to Windows and central to how we see Windows evolving.
