Windows 8 developer preview hand on.....

Windows 8 is probably an official new name to the new version of Microsoft windows, a series of operating system product by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops; netbooks, tablet PCs, and media center PCs. According to unofficial sources, the release date for Windows 8 has been set for October 2012, three years after the release of its predecessor, Windows 7. Windows 8's server counterpart, Windows Server 2012, is in development concurrently with Windows 8. The most recent officially released pre-release version is the Consumer Preview, which was released on February 29, 2012. An almost-complete Release Preview is scheduled for the first week of June 2012.
So if we talk about installing a new operating system first we got to consider the basic hardware support required….Windows 8 Consumer Preview should run on the same hardware that powers Windows 7 today. In general, you can expect Windows 8 Consumer Preview to run on a PC with the following:
  • 1 GHz or faster processor
  • 1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
  • 1024 x 768 minimum screen resolutions.
So now captivating you to whatever I have observed, as you can see from the video that there is a tile sort of view which is really nice and initiative, if u has the windows 8 on a tablet you can possibly move the screen with touch, but for desktop you can use mouse and scroll it over. Well really working on tile is really fun as we can kill or start the application at just on touch or a hit…..
Okay the task manger is also put on to shortcut by pressing {cntrl+shift+esc} that will directly take you to task manager and the pleasant feature is that you can see all the details regarding the ‘running tasks’ by just clicking on ‘more detail’ will probably get a lot out of it, the most crucial stuff is windows 8 lacking the ‘star button’ so shutting down and many other things really get into trouble to the users….but don’t you worry…. The shutting down or logging off is provided in the settings option to the bottom right on the desktop, and searching for a particular app when you don’t find on desktop window can be done through same. If being precise all the settings regarding your p.c are basically found at the ‘settings bar’.
Actually windows 8 is really fun in all and all but it will take a little time to user to get immune to it and be a frequent speedy user. Yes in my opinion its really next generation…..
