Written by on October 27, 2012 in Operating Systems - 5 Comments

Since the release of the developer preview of Windows 8, Microsoft has acknowledged that the era of being tied to a single desktop computer is over. Windows 8 is the boldest, biggest redesign in Microsoft’s history. This strategy was important in order for Microsoft to catch up in the tablet and mobile market.

Windows 8 differ from previous editions in many aspects.
