Even though Microsoft recently released its new operating system Windows 8, its predecessor will be around for a long time. Windows 7 was released in October of 2009, it was intended to be a focused, incremental upgrade to the Windows line, with the goal of being compatible with applications and hardware with which Windows Vista and earlier operating systems were already compatible.
Windows 8 is a completely redesigned operating system that’s been developed from the ground up with touch screen use in mind as well as near-instant-on capabilities that enable a Windows 8 PC to load and start up in a matter of seconds rather than in minutes. Windows 8 will replace the more traditional Microsoft Windows OS look and feel with a new “Metro” design system interface that first debuted in the Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system. The Metro user interface primarily consists of a “Start screen” made up of “Live Tiles,” which are links to applications and features that are dynamic and update in real time. Windows 8 supports both x86 PCs and ARM processors.
