Just 2 days ago, I was sharing about Windows 8 and its features in my blog article “The Next Generation of Technology – Windows 8“. But Today, Tech Gaint Microsoft announced today a launch date for a “consumer preview” version of Windows 8, the long-awaited update to its flagship operating system. Microsoft will take the wraps off the new OS on February 29, 2012, during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Windows 8 will get its own separate event, at a local hotel – the better, presumably, to cater to a small army of curious reporters.
The introduction of a test, or beta, version of Windows 8 to the public is expected to be accompanied by the opening of an “app store” stocked with mini-programs tailored for the next-generation operating system. Windows 8 will also support multiple monitors with the new ability to natively display different background images on each display and customized taskbar(s) on each of the connected displays.
Windows in particular has added support for ARM microprocessors in addition to the previously supported x86 microprocessors from Intel and AMD. Microsoft had announced this on January 2011, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES)
As discussed in my previous blog, removal of start button, customized task bar, a new user interface based on Microsoft’s design language which it calls as “Metro” and many…
