Windows 8 expected to launch this month
Is is too soon? Microsoft plans to release its new operating system Windows 8 by October 26. Windows 7 for the most part was a significant improvement over Windows Vista, and with XP support coming to a close in the next 2 years most companies will have to upgrade to Windows 7 or Windows 8. Thus far, Windows 7 has proved itself an effective and improved OS, however the question remains are we ready for OS 8 and the changes it will bring?
Microsoft states Windows 8 is the company’s largest overhaul of their operating systems in over a decade and Bill Gates said in an interview with The Associated Press “a very exciting new product … a very big deal …. I’m very pleased with it”
I guess we will have to wait and see how much of an improvement it is and if users are pleased or not. As of now, Windows 7 is a very functional system and we haven’t heard too many complaints from users.
