Surface Tablets On The RunJuly 5, 2013
I do not know how many of you made use of the special introductory Windows 8 upgrade offer that was in place for a while. I think it has expired by now. Anyway, you should know that was a limited period offer. Those who are going for the Windows 8 OS upgrade now would have to shell out the full price for the software. And yes, this is not at all cheap.
Well, let me give you the full picture of what I am talking about. The introductory price allowed the Windows 7 users to upgrade to Windows 8 for just one quarter of its price. But, now that the offer period has expired, you would have to pay four times that amount. So, now you see. You could have saved so many dollars had you decided to do upgrade earlier.
Why upgrade to Windows 8 OS?
By the way, I did not mean that since it has become more expensive, you should not bother about Windows 8 upgrade. On the contrary, the Windows 8 OS is the best Microsoft OS out there. Well, look at it this way. Windows OS is the most widely used operating system in the world. Touch screen interface is fast gaining popularity. And obviously, the Windows 8 is the only Microsoft operating system available that supports the touch-based interface.
I can say more. The metro tiles user interface is really revolutionary. However, some of the old Windows users found the complete change from the desktop interface to the tile-based UI confusing, I am sure they can very easily get used to it.
In fact, I felt the complete overhaul of the user interface a welcome change and a much-needed one after so many years of the same desktop interface. Yes, some of you may not agree with me on this. But, you could clearly see how the tile-based interface comes handy on a mobile or tablet device.
It was the intention of Microsoft to make the interface the same across multiple platforms. In other words, the interface that you found comfortable on the mobile device would be same on your desktop. This would really make the transition from one device to the other easier.
Moreover, there are many other features like the Windows Defender antivirus, the charm bar, the App store, etc. I suggest you visit the Windows 8 website to find out more.
