I think you must have heard of Windows 8, a new version of Windows. According to the Windows Design Team, Windows 8 has been “reimagined from the chipset to the user experience.”In fact, more information about Windows 8 has been trickling out as the Oct. 26 release date for Microsoft’s next operating system comes closer.Next you can know something about Windows 8 in the following passage, which can give you a general knowledge of this Windows OS briefly.

It seemed that we’ve learned a lot about this Windows version through the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and Release Preview, at this time I would like to take Release Preview as an example. As a matter of fact, for this new operating system, there are many improvements and refinements that folks will see right away, while others are under the hood. There is an example for you to understand thatin the so-called Start screen, we could find more individual optionsincluding more colors, improved multi-monitor support, and new Family Safety features to name just a few. Besides, the improvements to the Mail, Photos, and People apps will be noticed and enjoyedby us consumers and new Bing-powered Travel, News and Sports apps will also be seen by us.Actually Windows 8’s Start screen aimed for a unified experience for PC, laptop, tablet, and smartphone users.Windows Server 2012, as Windows 8’s server counterpart, will be developed with Windows 8 at the same time. Internet Explorer 10 also has new capabilities in the Windows 8 Release Preview like “flip ahead” and a fully integrated secure and power-optimized Adobe Flash Player. IE10 is also the first browser to feature Do Not Track “on” by default. All of these improvements and refinements can be seen in the Windows 8 Release Preview, which make us fell the great development.

What’s more, Windows 8 has a new user interface based on Microsoft’s Metro design language, which is said by Microsoft that this new interface is designed to better suit touchscreen input, along with traditional mouse and keyboard input.The Metro environment will feature a new tile-based Start screen similar to that of the Windows Phone operating system. Each tile will represent an application, and will be able to display relevant information on the tile for an e-mail app or the current temperature on a weather application. It seems convenient for us. Somebody said that Windows 8 Release Preview marks the final phase of development before releasing to manufacturing, however it has not yet finished up until now and there is more work to be done to get powerful Windows 8.

When the Windows 8 is released, will you want to change your operating system to it? If you will have done like this, maybe you can have a good and bran-new experience. Moreover, if you want to strengthen the security of your computer, you can set up a password. In the meantime, I highly recommend you create a password reset disk to get Windows password recovery.
