The long anticipated release of Windows 8 happened, and the launch was done in true Microsoft style on 26th October in New York City, and is quoted by Mr. Ballmer as being “the best Windows release ever”. It takes Windows to the next level in regards to user experiences as it is a brand new interface to the Windows platform. For Windows Phone users, the ’tiles’ are now extended to the Windows OS, and have received a colour palette uplift – the earlier versions of the Windows Mobile OS was primarily blue.
Users who prefer to go back to the classic Windows OS mode can certainly chose to do so. Not too sure what classic Windows means; for me classic means Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 look ‘n ‘feel, but that would likely be considered ancient by most.
One of the key questions repeatedly asked is, what will Windows 8 offer organisations and what is the upgrade path?
