Hi there,

Yea that’s right. Windows 8 are getting released in October a new version of Microsoft windows. They are a demo version of windows 8 is already available in the market. I collected it and using right now. 

It is good and well organized operating system. The system mostly looks like windows 7. I did not find any major change between windows 7 and 8. The change shows in color and themes. Windows 8 has some gorgeous themes that will impress all users.

Besides windows 8 is an improvement of windows 7. There are so many lack in windows 7. In windows 8 they recover those lacks. Though I have only demo version of windows 8, there might be a big change in full version. We will find it out quickly.

Hi Charles,

Windows 8 looks different from Windows 7. The UI (User Interface) of Windows 8 is also designed to work with touch screen tablets and computers. As you can see, when you log in to Windows 8, you can see the new Start Screen which is known as “Metro”. Instead of icons, the Start Screen has Tiles.



Compare to Windows 7, Windows 8 doesn’t have a Start Menu. Instead, it has a bar called “Charms Bar” , where you go to shut down and use some tools like “Search”.

Although the margin of their difference is small when it comes in performance it is said that the Windows 8 is much more faster about 1.5%

If you are already using Microsoft Windows 7 and thinking of shifting or upgrading to Windows 8, think again. Before the release of Microsoft Windows 8, many are excited to have their hands on this new operating system. But when users start using it, different issues start to arise.

According to a post in ITworld on November 16, 2011 by Sandro Villinger titled “Windows 8: The 10 biggest problems so far”, the most notorious pain that users may encounter in Windows 8 is the new Start screen. The new Start screen is Microsoft’s new way of starting and managing applications. Users tend to find themselves frequently switching between the classic Windows 7 desktop and the new Start screen.

One good example is when you are checking an email using Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 which is a traditional desktop application. One of your contacts requires a particular document. The next thing you need to do is to start a file search. Here comes the problem.

As soon as you click on the Start orb to start the search feature or to initiate a search, the classic desktop disappears with a huge swoosh and you are back on the new Start screen. When you find the file you are looking for and you open it, with another swoosh it throws you back to the good old classic desktop.

If you still wish to upgrade to Windows 8, here are the hardware requirements:

  • * At least 1 GHz or faster processor with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2
  • * 1 GB RAM for 32-bit and 2 GB RAM for 64-bit
  • * Requires 16 GB free hard drive space for 32-bit and 20 GB for 64-bit
  • * Microsoft DirectX 9-compatible graphics adapter with WDDM driver
