Windows 8 Is Really Just Around the Corner

Many people that use home based computers are shocked when I tell them that Windows 8 is just around the corner; then, to really put it into perspective, I even have people ask me, “Is there a Windows 7?”. I often have to pinch myself back into reality and realize that people really do not care about Windows versions; they just want a computer that is super easy to use, gets them on the internet, Facebook, Twitter, and blah, blah, blah…

Windows 8

Then to top it off, I am reading “do not buy a computer this year”, Windows 8 is just around the corner. Then furthermore, Microsoft is playing catch up with the tablet PC world by offering Windows 8 as an operating system that will be geared to run on anything from a tablet PC to a desktop PC. By the time they do catch up, the iPad will be several version models ahead.

Also, so far the Windows 8 desktop looks like the tiled user interface that is similar to the Windows 7 phone. I always did say that PC’s would get simpler and the end user would click on pretty graphics (or tiled images) to launch their apps.  I really do think we are in the midst of a transition from desktop PC models to the more portable tablet models. Again, goes back to what I said before, people just want a computer that is super easy to use, gets them to the internet, Facebook, Twitter, and blah, blah, blah…  Microsoft and all the big players out there know this!

Windows 8 is really just around the corner…  How do I know?  It is called competition and the competition has turned it up a notch; PLUS, all you have to do is Google Windows 8 and you will see results like below (for your reading enjoyment):

  1. Rick,

    If it’s easier, faster, more secure, cleaner, reasonably priced, ……, then I’m all for. If, on the other hand, it means upgrading hardware (again!), then MS can stick where the sun don’t shine. 🙂

    1. Bill,

      I’m reading where this may be a major overhaul on the Windows OS and that Microsoft is taking a gamble with the change. In a sense, they are being forced to make the change due to market changes. Everyone is into portability.

      Thanks for dropping by.
