About Windows 8

Windows 8 is the codename for an upcoming version of Microsoft Windows, a series of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, netbooks, tablet PCs, and media center PCs.

The main feature that was shown is the extensively redesigned user interface, optimized for touch as well as use with mice and keyboards. The Start menu is replaced by the new "Start screen", which includes live application tiles. The user can return to the regular desktop by choosing the "Desktop" application, and go back to the start screen by using the start button. Certain tablet computers can use a menu button to switch between the two modes. Examples of applications on the Start screen include a weather application, Windows Store, Investments, RSS news feeds, user’s Personal Page, and user’s Windows Live Account. The new interface is primarily designed for 16:9 screen resolution, with 1366×768 and larger screens able to display two Windows 8 applications using "Snap". 1024×768 screens can display one Windows 8 application in full-screen, and 1024×600 screens can only use the traditional Windows desktop.

Mike Angiulo confirmed at Computex 2011 that Windows 8 will use OEM Activation 3.0 instead of Windows 7 OEM Activation 2.1, which will make it less prone to cracks.

Windows 8 has a new developer platform according to Microsoft Vice President Julie Larson-Green, who described a new weather application and said that the application uses "our new developer platform, which is…based on HTML5 and JavaScript."

Microsoft has confirmed that the system requirements for Windows 8 will be the same as or lower than those of Windows 7
