The Developer Preview version of the Windows 8 OS is already available for those that are interested in the features of the new Windows 8. Obviously, we are not talking about a final version of the OS, but what we can see right now allows us to get a good impression about what Windows 8 puts on the table.
In this article we are going to talk about at least 10 new Windows 8 features you might like.
A System developed for touchscreens and tablets
Microsoft is working to make Windows 8 a unitary system, to run on both PC and tablets and on other touchscreen devices. The concept is excellent and it is based on a unique interface,the Metro.
Possibility of Sharing Apps
One of the biggest changes Windows 8 brings refers to the possibility of some files manipulated with Windows apps to be shared with other apps from the same operating system.
For example, if you edit a photo with a specific application, you will be able to upload it on Facebook through another application. Basically, there will be a direct dialogue between different apps from different developers.
Applications can be integrated in the OS
The same interaction will take place between apps and the Windows 8 OS. This means that integrating apps in Windows 8 will be extremely easy and will give developers less hassle.
The new Windows 8 OS will offer support for ARM chipsets, used by many mobile devices.
In other words, this type of processor will be able to run native Windows 8 apps without problems, which is a very good news for hardware manufacturers, software developers and users.
The new programming model used by Microsoft for Windows 8 makes native apps extremely secure. This doesn’t mean that Windows 8 will be 100% hacker proof, but in any case things will change for the better and hackers will have to work harder to find security breaches.
Windows Market will become a good source for getting apps. If you will, this will be a store similar to the Windows Phone 7 store.
System Restore – easier to use and configure
Microsoft developed a new tool for Windows 8, extremely useful when you want to bring your system out of the box, but without losing your personal information.
Clearly, not everybody likes cloud solutions. This happens because of security questions. And yet, Windows 8 will b helped by a series of excellent cloud solutions: Automatic sync with dedicated servers, possibility of transferring content between PC and tablets via cloud, etc.
Easier Administration and Settings
The Windows 8 control panel was reduced to the most useful features. The Metro interface offers everything you need for ergonomics. With Windows 8, the user will not have a hard time making new settings.
Just like Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7 set new standards regarding the stability of a operating system, Windows 8 will also do the same.
