Windows Operating Systems
We all know that Windows 8 operating system was a big flop. The operating system had many flaws like the absence of a few features, difficulties in accessing some features etc. that made the operating system a failure. So, is the operating system really a big flop? According to experts, it is not as big a failure as Windows Vista operating system that was released before Windows 7.
According to Windows live support, one of the major points to keep in mind is that Windows 8 operating system works well only with touch screen devices. However, majority of the users who had a bitter experience with the operating system were working on the traditional PCs, which do not have touch screen capabilities. That means, if you use mouse and keyboard to input things to the PC, you may not fall in love with this operating system. However, those users who use touch screen devices along with this operating system say that they do not wish to switch back to any of the traditional operating systems.
With the touch screen interface being the major attraction of the operating system, you need to harness it to fully understand and experience the features of the operating system. Many experts are also of this view. There are many supporters for the operating system. Jim Wong, the president of Acer, has a similar opinion. He says, “Personally, I have found the touchscreen to be a welcome addition to personal computers and I”ve often find myself wishing I could touch my MacBook Air”s screen to flip through photo galleries and play iOS-style touchscreen games.” The new OS provides all these functionalities to the users.
Windows OS Upgrade
Therefore, with all the features of Windows 8 operating system, it cannot be even compared to the Windows Vista operating system. Keep in mind that Windows Vista is considered as the worst operating system from Microsoft. After the release of Windows 8, many people were comparing Windows 8 to Windows Vista. Now, Microsoft released Windows 7 to rectify the faults with Windows Vista. Similarly, Microsoft has come up with Windows 8.1, with many changes and additions to the program. With the introduction of an updated OS, Microsoft has been successful in addressing some major issues with the program. This includes the ability to boot to any interface the user wants and the addition of the Start button etc.

Leave a reply Features Of Windows 8
This year, we all saw the release of the Windows 8 successor, Windows 8.1. You might be wondering why Microsoft was so eager to release another operating system just one year after the release of Windows 8. The reason is quite simple. Microsoft released Windows 8.1, as majority of Windows 8 users were disappointed with the operating system and wanted many changes in it. It did not have a Start button and had major flaws in the design. The Windows 8 versions available for purchase were Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro. Similarly, we have two versions of Windows 8.1 in the market, which are Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Pro.
Windows 8 versions came with a price tag of $119.99 and $199.99 and the two versions of Windows 8.1 have a similar price tag. Windows 8.1 is designed for home users, while Windows 8.1 Pro for professionals who require higher operating capabilities with their machines. Some of the major changes in Windows 8.1 include the return of the Start button and simpler navigation techniques. However, a few users are still disappointed, as the Start button does not take them to the Start menu.
Windows 8 Operating System
Users of Windows 8 versions are allowed to make free upgrade to Windows 8.1. Now, as per the latest reports, Microsoft does not seem to stop the major updates for the operating system and we might see Windows 8.1 update 1 by next year, which is code-named as ‘Threshold’. The new updates will cover devices like Xbox, Windows Phone and Windows RT. It is also hoped that with ‘Threshold’, you might see the Start menu back on the operating system.
If the experts guessed it right, the second quarter of 2014 will see Windows RT 8.1.1 and mobile operating system Windows 8.1 with high API unity. With this, a Smartphone running on Windows Phone operating system and a Windows RT device will have the functions to share apps between them, by bringing together Windows Phone Store and Windows Store apps.
With the new updates getting ready in the background, it is advised that users of Windows 8 versions make updates to Windows 8.1 so that you can make use of these updates when they are released. However, keep in mind that there is still no official word from Microsoft on the updates. Therefore, you may not get more information on these updates from Microsoft chat support or other official sources.
