No need to talk this and that, just watch the benefits, problems, and conclusions from my view and common people’s view (expert IT one)
- Windows 8 represents a fundamental shift in the way Windows works and is far more touchscreen-orientated for use on tablets as well as traditional PCs. If you’re completely new to Windows 8 and haven’t used a preview version, we’d recommend you check out our guide to the new features you’ll find in Windows 8 vs Windows 7 and Windows 8: what you’ll need to relearn.
- If you have a touchscreen, it also shows you how to swipe for the charm bar, but only if you have the right screen – so an older tablet PC with only an active digitiser just shows the mouse tutorial.
If you’ve picked a colour scheme, the tutorial uses that for the image of the screen – a little thing, but it’s a subtle way of making it feel more like your PC.
- Once the mini tutorial has played a few times, the set up screen starts switching between various different colours – presumably to show you the other colour choices as well as reassuring you that it’s still working.
- There’s at least one Windows 8 product that provides an experience on par with the iPad’s, and that’s the Microsoft Surface
- Windows 8 is a dramatic departure from Windows 7, blowing up the Start menu into a vibrant Start Screen that’s electric with activity and well suited for touch devices like tablets. Despite some inconsistencies (particularly with the traditional desktop, which still exists), the new interface is powerful, fast and convenient.
- If you’re thinking of upgrading your PC to the new Windows 8, be prepared for hassles and disappointment, especially if the computer is more than a year or two old—even if it technically meets the basic requirements to run the new version.
- Certainly, some people are downloading Windows 8 for upgrades without buying new hardware, but let’s get real: Windows 8 is all about the hardware. The new OS is tailor-made for touch screens, and touch-screen PCs — the multi-finger kind that Windows 8 was designed to work with — have only been available since Oct. 26. As we all know, Microsoft went so far as to build its own tablet to showcase the platform.
- Windows 8 is a powerful operating system, but it’s also perplexing to new users. The built-in tutorial is very brief, amounting to a few instructions on how to perform some basic actions with a mouse or finger. If you want to engage snap mode or scroll through apps running in the background, good luck figuring them out without someone holding your hand. Even finding the restart button is a little challenging. It all amounts to a pretty steep learning curve, even for longtime Windows users.
If you like to learn about technology and don’t do many stuff, just office, I think you may like this future feels in Windows 8, and include that damn Microsoft Surface. But if you don’t have time to look it up, or don’t like to take a big effort of learning, you may think twice for having this OS. I’ll let you choose
