Windows 8 Topic

I will try and keep this updated with news about Windows 8 whenever i can but for the first piece of news look below

While we’ve not seen the anticipated Windows 8 first peak at CES, which was unlikely anyway given the raft of WIndows 7 tablets being launched there, new details about the OS have emerged.

 

Technology blogger Paul Thurrott is reporting that the new OS will feature a tile-based interface called Mosh (presumably because you can dive right in).  This won’t be a new mainstream interface however, and will be one specifically for devices such as tablets, slates and other Windows embedded devices.  It also sounds initially rather like the custom Windows 7 interface for the ExoPC.

 

It is also rumoured that there will be a new applications model codenamed Jupiter, presumably accompanying the expected Windows app store.  This app model is expected to be based around Silverlight and will be delivered at .appx packages.

 

There’s no more information but both of these are believable and, frankly, were to be expected.  We’ll provide you with more news as we get it.

Tbh, Windows 7 is perfection, well for me at least.

All they could improve on it is.. maybe speed and some small changes. However, maybe Windows  8 will be good for touch screens and needs to be almost calibrated and designed for touch screens

I just hope they don't muck it up.

Apperently an app store might become a reality in Windows 8, also sources have said that Microsoft are apprently taking a big risk with Windows 8. And that they may be no 32 bit versions just 64 bit and 128 bit (still has to be confirmed).

Vista wasn't as much of a 'fail' as everyone seems to think. It was just over-protective, which is never bad in my eyes.

Yea I agree, Vista was actually a key step to acheiving Windows 7. Also the press destroyed Vista at launch before it was really understood.

I had some major issues with Vista with the over-protection etc. With Windows 7, I prefer the layout entirely, much more user friendly and can be more easily personalised to your liking!

The overprotection is what could be the difference to installing malware or not.
