Windows 8 developer preview has been launched
Microsoft has just launched its new operating system's beta version in continuing its legacy. "Windows 8 Developer Preview."
Windows 8, just like its predecessor not only looks sleek and beautiful but, also performs amazingly.
Windows 8's new features include:
- Personalized lock screens
- Metro style apps
- Touch based user interface
- Better security features
- Commendable start screen

Developer preview comes with developer tools, basically because, Microsoft is giving this edition for developers to design and create apps for Windows 8.
The new metro style apps not just look good but, they also work together and consume less system memory. When you bootup your system you will see your personalized lock screen, here you can select your user account.
Once you login you see the beautiful start screen which allows quick access to all your applications. From here, either you can directly start your desired application or start the windows explorer or desktop to see your files.
