Microsoft (finally) hits reboot on Windows 8
Starting now, anyone can download a preview version of the new operating system to see what all the fuss is about.
For starters, the Start button in Windows 8.1 is making a return, letting users get access to their apps and files through a hierarchical click of the button.
Also, Microsoft is letting users boot their computer straight to the Desktop – the way most people are familiar with loading their computers.
Search is also being ramped up – becoming more universal for apps and the Internet (powered by Microsoft’s Bing, no less).
At their Build developer’s conference, MS execs also said apps such as Facebook and Flipboard are coming to Windows. These are two popular apps that are long overdue for Windows 8.
Do you think these moves will help Windows 8 succeed?- Maurice Cacho, MSN Tech & Gadgets
