Microsoft once again shows how it is moving on with the times when they showed the world a glimpse into their Windows 8 platform at at its Build conference.
For those that are thinking “oh, no another Windows change that may not run all my programs”, rest assured that you have no worries there, because according to Steven Sinofsky, president of the Windows and Windows Live division “Everything that runs on Windows 7 runs on Windows 8.” During the unveiling and showcasing of Windows 8 it was made very clear that Touch has become the preferred user experience which Microsoft will capitalize on through Windows 8.
Touch browsing is fast, fluid and intuitive with Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10.
The system seemed to be using fewer resources while still allowing multiple applications to work together without any lag. Although this was only a preview of what is to come, Windows 8 is clearly touch-based.
