Windows 8: Good for Laptop and Tablet Microsoft recently held its conference BUILD, a developer event in which only the highlights was the presentation of Windows 8. Not exactly a surprise reveal, has been a lot of information available to Windows 8 bits and pieces, but this was a first peek at Microsoft under the shade at the heart of the issue of Windows 8 itself. As expected, Windows 8 is expected to run faster than their predecessors, but then Microsoft is unlikely to reveal that he had run slower. A lot of little details emerged, including the fact that support for NFC (Near Field Communications) will be integrated into Windows 8, as the simplest configurations for a system update before its sale, disposal malware with greater efficiency and a reform of a standard windows user interface sections, such as Task Manager. Cloud syncronisation and well as Apple application store for Windows applications will also be present in the full desktop client, which at first glance seems an awful lot like Windows 7 does now. That could change, but much of the real meat of what Microsoft had to show was seen in the way that Windows 8 will adapt to the market for tablets. Microsoft was leaning on the market for tablets of years, but outside of certain specialized niches, which has never been so successful - especially in the era of the iPad. Windows 8 has a lot of pills, specific features, including a complete user interface tablet called Metro that Microsoft showed at the conference to build on a Samsung tablet supplied to all attendees who have to carry with them. Microsoft is built on the ideas of interface that first showed off their Windows Phone 7 devices, and the results are spectacular. It is also worth noting that while tablets Windows yet run on Intel hardware, Windows 8 will also run on ARM processors more energy efficient, but there will be differences for models of ARM, will not run legacy applications Windows, only specialized touch screen. Whether the time Windows 8 releases that will be able to make a dent in the domain near the iPad tabletmarket remains to be seen, a good half dozen Android pills that have failed, and the rest seem to be stuck in legal battles with Apple. Microsoft has not announced a timetable for Windows 8 will ship (except to say that you will send "when you"), to eye I'd say we'd be lucky to see it in stores and on laptops, desktops and tablets before at least half of next year.
