Posted Date: 19-May-2011
Windows 8 is going to come in the market next year in 2012 . A number of new features are going to be launched in the Windows 8 computer. It will provide better user experience in comparison to the previous versions like Windows XP, Windows Vista and even Windows 7. In this resource I will discuss the new features present in Windows 8 operating system.
Here are some of the expected new features in Windows 8 OS
New Taskbar in Windows 8
In windows 7 Microsoft made the task bar more useful and easy to use. Everyone is believing for the same reasons that it will be again repeated this time with the introduction of a new taskbar in Windows 8 with more features. I just hope that Microsoft provides a taskbar useful enough to live upto the expectations of the people.
Compatibility with Previous Windows
The reason for Windows Vista failing to make a mark in the market was that it had the demerit that it was not able to run various applications of Windows XP. However it is expected that Windows 8 will not have any such problem and will run the applications for older Window versions without any problem.
128 Bit Operating System in Windows 8
It is also expected that that Windows 8 will be a 128 bit Operating System. It is believed that Microsoft is in alliance with intel for developing 128 processors. If this came true there is no doubt that it will be the most significant usp for Windows 8. This is because of the reason that no other operating system has such technology till now.
512 GB RAM support in Windows 8
Sounds starange but in case Windows 8 came with 128 bit operating system than this can be a reality. This will be an boom for the servers and ensure their effective use.
New looks of Windows 8
Windows 8 new looks had been leaked on the internet and they show that the look of Windows 8 will be as awesome as the OS itself. Thus Microsoft has done all its homework even regarding the looks of Windows 8. Whether the leaked pictures are true or not and whether the news is reality or a rumour will be confirmed once the new Windows is in the market.
New libraries in Windows 8
There will be far more libraries in Windows 8 in comparison to Windows 7. All these libraries will provide a lot of features to the users and ensure easy functioning. This feature also makes Windows 8 worth buying.
Windows 8 Security
There can not be two opinions that one of the reasons of the success of Windows 7 was inclusion of more security features in it in comparison to previous versions. Thus it is expected that Windows 8 will come with even better security features and enhanced firewall. It is expected to give more control to the users.
