With the new frenzy created by the new version of the Windows operating system, Windows 8, we will surely experience the same things as in the case of iPhone 5. Every week will probably come with new rumors not only about what this version brings but about its release date.
Having been previewed for the first time at the annual Microsoft’s Build developer conference in Califoria, this week, Windows 8 is said to be a “reimagining of Windows from the chipset to the experience” according to the president of Microsoft’s Windows division, Steve Sinofsky.
Windows 8 is rumoured to be released next year if we take into account the fact that Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, stated that this vesrion of the Windows operating system will come next year and the fact that Microsoft seems to release a new version of the operating system once every three years, the last release of this kind having had place back in 2009. When exactly next year?
If we are to take into account the fact that Mary Jane-Foley from ZDNet has claimed that she has received “new information from a trusted source that Microsoft is actually on track to release to manufacturing all Windows 8 versions by April 2012″ we can assume that Windows 8 will be available to consumers somewhere in the summer or fall of 2012.
One of the big differences is that Windows 8 will work on tablets, desktops and laptops bringing support for touchscreens. Practically, the operating system will work on almost any device no matter if this one comes with a keyboard or with a touchscreen, with an Intel, ARM or AMD processor. With features like this, Windows 8 will surely be more than successful.
Other Windows 8 features include performance improvements, Metro interface and a Windows Store for applications. This seems like a great deal, so we are eager for Windows 8 to be released.
