  • Windows “8”: Better or the Best Ever?

    Though Microsoft has offered several sneak peeks at Windows 8, there are still many mysteries surrounding the new, radically re-designed, touch-driven operating system.

    Microsoft is widely expected to unveil Windows 8, the follow-up to its Windows 7 operating system, on Tuesday afternoon at the BUILD Conference in Anaheim, California.

    Though Microsoft has offered several sneak peeks at Windows 8, there are still many mysteries surrounding the new, radically re-designed, touch-driven operating system.

    Here’s what we do know about Windows 8: It will definitely be released some time in 2012, according to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. It was first shown off in public at the All Things Digital D9 Conference in early June, and the design was radically different from its predecessor’s (See a slideshow of screenshots below). Windows 8 looked much more like the Windows Phone OS, with the interface having been designed for what Microsoft is calling an “all new touch-centric user experience.” That is, Windows 8 has apparently been optimized for touchscreen usage on tablets and touchscreen-PCs so that you can slide and zoom on your PC or slate like you would on your Samsung Focus or HTC Titan.

    But aside from these glimpses at what may have been an early design, we know very little about Windows 8.

    Who knows how much may have changed since June? A preview of its new, very busy toolbar drew heavy criticism for inaccessibility, while its ability to boot in 8 seconds drew praise.
