Microsoft’s magnificent revelation the Windows 8, which is not even launched, has taken up the market with its consumer preview. Just after an impressive success of Windows 7, now Microsoft has given up another remarkable version. Smartearningmethods.com was keen enough to share some best HD Wallpapers1 and top 10 Desktop Pictures 2, for this incredible Piece, most awaited round the globe.
However, surveys have shown that there is a mixed feeling observed within the customers and they are still confused about why they should upgrade their Windows 7(which has made lives of many consumers easier as compared to their use of XP) to Windows 8.
For the consumers who still have doubts about why to upgrade to this soon would be released Windows 8, here are 7 Genuine Reasons to switch over.
1) Metro UI
We observe in the consumer preview that windows 8 offers a Metro-style interface which resembles to the one we saw in Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7. It has totally replaced the old style of icons being tiled on your desktop. The applications will be launched like an icon. One of the best features is the live information like new- email and weather updates will be prompt up.
As the Preview has shown, the interface is too eye- catching and with a growing trend of Tablets, the Windows 8 interface is easy to use with touch screens.
2) Windows 8 – Love to Touch!
As Mentioned above, Windows 8 provides best support touch Screen Devices. The Metro –Style has been developed keeping in view, the usability compatible to the touch Screen Devices. Its important to include here that windows 8 works completely fine with the traditional mouse and keyboard input devices, yet the grace that is seen with touch Screens is surely something no one would like to miss.
3) Windows 8 Applications – the Store!
When Nokia can have Ovi and Android enjoys the Google Play, how can Microsoft stay behind? Windows 8 has its own Application store where the users can browse, download and install applications. If you search applications for Windows 8 at the moment, you will find that the store is limited, but a huge increase is expected as Microsoft releases Windows 8.
4) Cloud services
Windows 8 has something beyond your expectations, simply! Now you can keep all your settings and customization stored into your machine that will be restored even when you re-plug it. You can pull your emails form Gmail as well as can view photos from Facebook.
5) High Security – Decent View
Windows 8 allows you to keep your machine secured with a high quality of user interface. You can use picture lock screen, as you have one in your cell phone, say bye to the traditional typed password and enjoy your own customized pictures as screen saver with a password to access their machine.
6) Backward compatibility
Microsoft is keen enough not to overlook the most important aspect. Consumers like you and me, might show some resistance in switching to the windows 8, if there is no Backward Compatibility available, but fortunately, this OS is compatible with windows 7. You can always shift to the “classic view” if Metro – style becomes boring or unappealing to you.
7) Device compatibility of Windows 8
Microsoft know its place in the market and so windows 8 is not specifically design for a particular device, but for different ones. Windows 8 works great equally for your PC, Laptop and Tablet.
I am sure Microsoft will have a lot more as a surprise for its consumers so just keep your fingers Crossed,
