Newest Windows OS (Windows 8)

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I've heard that Windows 8, the newest Windows OS, will soon be released.

Has anybody here who actually tried its Developer Preview? Is it better than the Windows 7 version?

Yes the Windows 8 is the latest release of the windows OS. But I am not sure is it released or going to be release. As I know they have released only evaluation copy. When windows 7 came they first release original evaluation copy of the windows 7 OS for the testing purposes.

At that time I was one of the persons who use that copy. Anyway I need to tell you something different. The Microsoft release new version of the OS due to some technical issue or due to some problem with it. But still no such a big problem with windows 7.

Most of the users among windows 7 are happy with the product. So no need of releasing new version quickly. But we don’t know what are the thoughts of the Bill Gates…..

Newest Windows OS (Windows 8)


Windows 8 or Microsoft Windows 8 is an operating system for PC developed by Microsoft as part of the Windows NT series of operating systems. It was released to manufacturing on August 1, 2012 and to general availability on October 26, 2012. This version of Microsoft Windows introduced major changes to the Windows operating system and the UI or its user interface.

Microsoft Windows 8 is aimed for tablets and desktop computers. Microsoft Windows 8.1 is a Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows 8 released on October 17, 2013. This Service Pack update addresses some features that were criticized by reviewers and early adopters. It also included additional enhancements to various parts of the operating system. Microsoft ended support for Windows 8 RTM on January 12, 2016.

And for Microsoft lifecycle policies related to Service Packs, users must install and update to Windows 8.1 to maintain support and receive further updates. Together with having a much different look and feel from its predecessor, Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8 brags faster startup times and better performance. Unfortunately, it failed to reach critical mass among business and users alike.
