This news is about the Windows 8 which is becoming ready to release in near future. The news was leaked out from Microsoft itself .
Nowadays we have to wait for sometime after switching on the computer to make it ready for working. But the future will not be so. Immediately after switching the power it may be ready to work! The new generation operating systems will be the king behind this ability. Booting will be completed within a moment in such operating systems. Foreseeing this in advance, Microsoft also had decided to test new innovations in this field. The facial recognition system that recognize the face of the user , U S B 3.0 , Blue tooth 3.0 etc will be supported by the new operating system. The display technology may also change in such systems. It is said that the new OS will include a simple technology to stream TV Shows and cinema in any type of screen.
Microsoft is the giants in software fields. Their latest operating system is Windows 7 which was released in 2009 October. Prior to release of Windows 7 Microsoft was in a doubt about the public acceptance of the new OS. But the response from the customers were very good which made Microsoft to introduce more advanced OS. Microsoft had declared that more than 1500 lakhs of Windows 7 had already sold out all over the world. This is the statistics before migration of many Microsoft clients including the business clients who hadn't migrated from Windows XP to new OS so far. Those who are migrating to Windows 7 is also in a doubtful state. In midst of this there comes the news of Windows 8.
When a software is changed in most cases hardware also is to be changed in accordance with the software. If not changed the softwares will not work properly and hence customer care support may not be available. So when a new software comes people had to spend for software as well as hardware which will make financial burden over the customer. That is why some people looked this release of new software with some anxiety. Moreover , to popularize the new OS , Microsoft had withdrawn the support to earlier OSs. From July 13, 2010 onwards the support to Windows 2000 and Windows XP SP2 have been stopped.
