In today`s blog 4pm would like to try and help you with your decision on whether or not to go for Windows 8.
Every time a new product is launched, especially in the IT world, almost immediately there are thousands of negative reviews. Obviously, for some people it might be hard to switch to a new system, which is totally understandable. A lot of people do not welcome change. Sometimes it’s difficult trying to figure out whether it’s worth getting this new product and if it will really benefit you. First of all, you should be warned: If you are 100% happy with your Windows 7, then going for the new one won’t really make much sense for you. It takes a lot of getting used to. There is a new surface and a Windows Store (which is not very intuitive to use). On top of this, the controls of the new operating system definitely work much better on touch screen than on an average PC.
Upgrading to the new system might be quite painful if your computer is not one of the latest models, which means not more than 1 or 2 years old. Older computers are not able to take full advantage of the special features of Windows 8.
However, if you have enough time and patience to adapt to the new system and its features and if you just want to use your OS (operating system) for fun then Windows 8 could make you happy. Your patience will be definitely be rewarded.
Besides the system`s ultrafast boot times, Windows 8 also feels much smarter, faster and better than Windows 7. But to be honest it is not a necessity, especially when you consider the relatively high price of an upgrade. Something which immediately attracted our attention is the large array of Start screen customization options Windows 8 offers. Furthermore, Windows 8 comes with a bunch of highly useful apps, such as a Facebook app, the People app, to which all your social media accounts can be linked, the Weather app, News, Financial and Sports apps, the Bing app and so on and so forth. In general, Windows 8 is quite easy to use, especially for multitasking.
