Windows 8 appears some similar to Windows Phone 7. Microsoft illustrated the next edition of its operating system at the All Things D conference on an archetype touch-screen tablet with laptops with a keyboard and mouse.
The latest Windows is a lot prettier than its well-known precursor. The touch interface is based on customizable live tiles same of what Microsoft has on its smartphones. The latest start screen changes the start button, tiles and taskbar each Windows user has lived with. That further recognizable-looking Windows obviously is not gone for fine though, tap a desktop icon for an Office app like Excel, for instance, and Windows appears, well, similar to Windows.
Steven Sinofsky, the president of the Windows and Windows Live Division at the company said that Windows 8 will consist of a latest set of tools and services developers could get benefit of. However the new operating system could run the entire regular Window 7 applications.
Sinofsky would not fall the beans on when the latest Windows is approaching although it would not be as early as this fall. He says, “Right now we’re focusing on getting a release done.” Microsoft is setting up to expose more at his conference in the fall of the developer.
Microsoft presently gave off a flavor of the latest Windows. There are persistent inquiries having to perform with boot up times, sharing and costing and the kind of irritating “craplet” software that may be preloaded by computer manufacturers, a subject elevated by conference questioner Walt Mossberg. Furthermore inquired by Mossberg concerning security on Windows 8, Sinofsky says “I think it always will be a good idea to run security software.”
