Microsoft has officially unveiled its newest operating system, Windows 8. The software is designed to use single operating system in a variety of systems ranging from tablets to desktops running Intel and ARM processors.
Microsoft’s new "Metro" user interface focuses on touch input and is designed to run applications in full-screen mode, much like the Apps in Apple’s iOS.
Microsoft says that the new browser interface in Internet Explorer 10 provides "a fast and fluid touch-browsing experience." Windows 8 is built on the foundation of Miscrosoft’s popular operating system, Windows 7 – improving it to let it run even in low-end hardware.
With Windows 8, new ultrathin PCs and tablets turn on instantly, run all day on a single charge and stay connected to the Internet so your PC is ready when you are. Next-generation system on a chip (SoC) support will also enable greatly extended standby and low-power states.
