Microsoft Introduces Windows 8

Microsoft has introduced an early look of its next version of windows at the 2011 Inernational Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 5, 2011.

This new version supports System on a chip architecture (SoC). This means that windows 8 will work very fine on Arm based machines and handhelds.

It should be noted that neither Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer nor Steven Sinofsky(president of Windows and Windows live division at Microsoft) has used the term Windows 8. Instead they called it the next version of Windows. Actual brand of the product is yet to be decided. But since the term Windows 8 is widely used over Internet for the upcoming version of windows, I have labelled it as Windows 8.

The new version is expected to support 128 bit computing. We only had upto 64 bit OS till Windows 7. Both Intel and AMD (Processor manufacturers) are working hard with Microsoft to make a new improved system for the users.

I hope they soon release this version for public use. People are eagerly waiting for its new version. I guess and am pretty sure about it that the name will be Windows 8. Its already popular !
