Oct 4, 2011

According to Laptop Magazine, Microsoft is definitely blurring the line between mobile and desktop operating systems with Windows 8, which combines an attractive Windows Phone-like interface that’s optimized for touch with the versatility of traditional computing (when you want it).

The developer preview is set to release soon; here are just a few of the highlights:

*Touch screen, Mouse or Pen, you decide, how you interact with the OS changes i.e. start button will appear in a different location when using a mouse.

* Windows 8 comes equipped with Internet Explorer 10 allowing for a full screen view of websites.

*Picture Password allow for you to select a photo for your password. Confirming your login will require you to perform 3 simple gestures.

*Smarter touch keyboards similar to that on a windows phone, but with more features i.e. wider display.

* Windows App Store that will promote Metro-style, full-screen applications, Categories shown off included games, social networking apps, productivity, education, and finance. You’ll be able to see screen shots, view descriptions, and try apps before you buy them.
