My thoughts about Windows 8.

I have recently tried out Windows 8 and have been using it very regularly. I really like how it has changed, comparing it to the previous version of Windows, Windows 7. Windows 8, for me, totally changed how I look at and think about Windows anymore. It still has the old Windows desktop with the icons but the only thing that changed, not including some minor and major updates to the UI, was the new Metro start menu. Microsoft believes in better UI and user experience. Their also trying to catch up to the growing tablet market, by making Windows 8, the “next” version of Windows, touch compatible. Microsoft sees an opportunity for apps, games, and developers. One of the biggest things in Windows 8 is the Windows Application Store. (Not the official name) It seems like Windows wants to also go into the app market too. Microsoft is slowly catching up to the growing advantages and technologies. It’s not about what Microsoft says their going to put in Windows 8, it’s about is it going to actually work well and are the consumers going to like the features.

Windows 8 Developer Preview has been available for download for a quiet amount of time. Microsoft said that the next preview, “Windows 8 Consumers Preview” will be release during an event in Barcelona on February 29th, 2012. This is going to be a big milestone for Windows 8. I’m just wondering why are they calling it “Consumers Preview” and not “beta”.

Do you would want to try out Windows 8 Consumers Preview when it comes out?

What’s the best features or thing you really like in Windows 8?

What do you think the next version after Windows 8 is going to be called?

***I’ll try to blog live from the Barcelona event about the Windows 8 Consumers Preview so please stay tuned to my blog page and I appreciate and thank my readers.
