It used to be that any release of a new operating system by Microsoft was an event that would be shouted from the rooftops. Who remembers the heady days of Windows 95 when stores opened at one minute past midnight to queues of hundreds of geeks ready to be enlightened. For the last few years Apple Mac have been the top dogs and grabbed all the headlines. Steve Jobs sad passing was the Tipping Point that sent apple into overdrive with tablets and mobile touch technology revolutionizing how we interact with our computer. Now some say that for the last few years that most of Microsoft's 'innovations' have been merely copies of things Mac have been doing for years. So what does Microsoft's new Windows 8 operating system have to offer that makes it worth upgrading to? My Windows 8 is an Android application that tells you everything you need to know.
 
Windows 8 is an operating system by Microsoft that has just been made available but has been in evolution since before the previous version was introduced in 2009. .MyWindows8.org aims to provide Windows 8 tutorials,themes and updates as well as giving you all the information on the latest Windows 8 gadgets, Windows 8 apps, Windows 8 upgrade offers and much more. Windows 8 heralds a number of changes that will impact the way you use your computer. The new touch-optimised start screen is the most visible change as it replaces the traditional start menu. On a non touch device, getting accustomed to it might take a while, but on a touch device it is a joy to use, thanks to gestures. The underlying explorer interface has undergone its share of changes too. You get the Ribbon menu bar interface, Charms bar, a new file copy progress bar, improved search and a revamped control panel. The boot and load times for Windows 8 are much faster than Windows 7 as well.
 
It was about time that Microsoft updated what was becoming a bit of a clunky Windows 7 system but, with it's main changes involving touch screen technology and syncing, I can hear Mac users from here raising an eyebrow as both have been Mac staples for years. But that is not the only changes for Windows 8 and many are great improvements on previous systems. My Windows 8 details all the new features and shows you how to get the best out of them as well as keeping you updated with all things Windows8 including great new free and paid apps.
