Now before we move on to the details of this problem, I would like to give a small introduction about the new operating of Microsoft.
Windows 8 is the upcoming operating system from Microsoft. This means that it hasn’t been released yet. There are rumors in the tech world saying that it will be released by the end of 2012, but the exact date isn’t confirmed yet. Meanwhile, Microsoft has released the beta version of the OS known as the consumer preview. This version was made available to download in the website of Microsoft. Millions of people have already downloaded the consumer preview and this was expected because of the kind of anxiety Windows 8 has created among the techies and ordinary users. Now, what makes windows 8 so special to catch so much attention?
The obvious answer will be its new features and interface. Microsoft has equipped it with the new user interface called Metro which will make it more suitable for touch screen devices. Users will also be able to access the traditional desktop interface in Windows 8. This means that you can use Windows 8 on your desktop, laptop and your tablet devices. Some of the other features in Windows 8 include the cloud integration, Windows 8 application store, Windows 8 transfer etc.
