Windows has been reimagined to focus on your business and life. Windows has a new beautiful, fast, and fluid design. Behind the new look of Windows 8 is the rock-solid foundation you’ve come to expect from Windows 7. Just like Windows 7, security and reliability features are built into Windows 8. Everything that was great about Windows 7 is even better.
The new Start screen has all of the information you care about in one place, such as your contacts, the weather, and the next appointment on your calendar. Windows 8 is truly yours: websites, news, people, contacts, and your favorite apps are front and center. Because you decide how to organize and group things on the screen, viewing and interacting with content is faster than ever. The tiles on your Start screen are brimming with content, and they change and update in real time so you can see what’s going on and stay on top of things.
Windows 8 is hands-on and designed to eliminate the need to choose between this and that.. Between consumption and productivity, between powerful capabilities and long battery life. … between touch and mouse and keyboard, for example. Because you work in different ways depending on which app you’re using, Windows 8 makes it easy to use touch or mouse and keyboard, whichever method works best.
