Microsoft has today announced availability of the Windows 8 Release Preview, what is expected to be the final milestone before the highly anticipated Windows 8 operating system is released. Windows 8 has become the most tested Microsoft operating system of all time, and with today’s release, it enters its final phase of development before it releases to manufacturing.
Acer and Asus netbooks will continue to produce and design new models in anticipation of the arrival of Windows 8 with updated and improved versions of Intel Atom Cedar Trail. Despite the striking decline in netbook segment, with a dramatic drop in sales by 34% over the previous year, the Taiwanese manufacturers appear to have more confidence in low-cost laptops.
Windows 8 is the latest Operating system launched by Microsoft. Microsoft has shocked the people with all new Windows 8 Metro UI. Command Prompt is an essential tool in Windows OS to tweak and change system settings. The new metro style UI is very important and you won’t notice the secret old interface anywhere, unless and until you click on the desktop. When you click on the Start Menu, it will take you back to the previous screen though it is in the same old position. There is no classic or program menu like we saw in Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP that we were using as shortcut to find application. But that is missing in Windows 8.
Acer has no plans for the moment, to announce any notebooks based on ARM processors. The Taiwanese giant, in fact, decided to wait for the official launch of Windows 8. The consequence of this decision has been made more concrete at the annual meeting with the IFA in Berlin, where the manufacturer has confirmed these intentions.
Steve Ballmer had a few weeks ago, issued a statement announcing the arrival of Windows 8 in 2012, only to be denied publicly by Microsoft. The information, however, is now confirmed by another manager, who stated that the new operating system Windows 8 will be introduced next year (2012), probably in the fall.
