Microsoft already released the early version of Windows 8 . Those who would like to taste and experience the all new Windows 8 can download the Developer Preview, which is currently in pre-beta version. The developer version shows off the current stage of the OS. It is available for free download, and comes in three different packages:

    (1) 64-bit version – Only the OS
    (2) 32-bit version – Only the OS
    (3) 64-bit version with developer tools

Requirements needed to install windows 8 os

System requirements

    1 GHz or faster processor
    1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
    16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
    DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
    1024 x 768 minimum screen resolution
    In order to use the Snap feature, you will need a PC with a 1366×768 resolution or higher.
    If you want to use touch, you’ll need a multitouch-capable laptop, tablet, or display.

Windows 8 Features

Windows 8 offers a number of new Windows 8 features from its all new UI to Windows App Store and improvised security features. Here’s a list of new features and improvements which will arrive with Windows 8:
Support for both x86 PCs and ARM tablets

Windows 8 is the first edition of Windows which will work on both ARM based tablets and traditional x86 (as well as x32 and x64) PCs based on ARM processors from Intel and AMD.

“Support for ARM-based chipsets, touch, and sensors makes Windows 8 work beautifully on your choice of a full spectrum of devices, such as 10-inch slates with all-day battery life, ultra-lightweight laptops, and powerful all-in-ones with 27-inch high-definition screens,” Microsoft contends, in a Windows 8 Guide distributed with Windows Developer Preview
Windows To Go

The “Windows To Go” seems to be an exciting feature that basically allows Windows 8 to boot from a USB device (called as Live USB), including user’s programs, settings and files. The feature is designed to work with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, and on both legacy NIOS and UDFI firmware. However, Microsoft says that a user will not be able to “Hibernate” with this feature.

Windows 8“Windows To Go is a new feature in Windows 8 that enables enterprise administrators to create USB drives containing complete, managed Windows images that users can use to boot and run Windows on any Windows 7 or Windows 8 capable computer. Windows To Go makes it possible for employees to use a managed device whether they work from home, a client office or in a free seating environment. This session will discuss Windows To Go, its hardware requirements and building compatible and complementary software.”

Another interesting thing about this feature is that, if the USB drive is removed, Windows will automatically freeze, but will continue to operate if the USB drive is inserted back in the next 60 seconds after removal.
Windows Store

It is not yet available in the market for now but Microsoft is said to finish working on Windows 8 by this summer and  its launch in October this year. Those who are running a personal computer with a Windows 7 OS logo sticker on it will be ok for Windows 8. Here are the basic hardware recommendations by Microsoft:

1GHz or faster processor

1GB RAM (32-bit) / 2GB RAM (64-bit)

16GB available hard disk space (32-bit) / 20 GB (64-bit)

DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver 

Windows 8 is not at all like the previous Windows operating systems, instead, it is a totally different one, designed around touch screens. Just like the Apple’s OS, Windows 8 integrates both mobile devices and personal computers.
