Microsoft Windows 8 launches challenge on mobile, thanks to uncontested supremacy on computer software: about 90% of PCs around the world work with Windows.   Change the look, but also the 'soul': the new operating system, on sale tomorrow, is designed to use the 'cloud', a virtual cloud (which will be called Skydrive), which synchronize documents, images and video can be opened from anywhere. The debut of Windows 8 will coincide with the launch of Microsoft Slate tablet: an open challenge to Apple and its iPad last generation, presented on Tuesday, and rivals Amazon and Google. Windows 8 will be available in 109 languages ??and guarantee from Redmond, you will be 'disturbed' by the new graphical user interface, even for those who are accustomed to using the operating system from Bill Gates from the beginning of the PC.

A, I see, then i suppose that at the moment it is not worthwhile for those who work with Windows 7, perform upgrade to version 8. Am I right?

I agree that Windows 7 is more than adequate, and it has proven itself to be an excellent operating system. Nevertheless, Windows 8 has quite a lot to offer and is a very worthwhile upgrade. I am using Windows 8 on my desktop but still have Windows 7 on the laptop.

I downloaded a copy of the Windows 8 Preview sevral months ago and soon changed to a copy of Windows 8 Evaluation. I am very pleased with the new operating system and have been eagerly looking forward to the official release. The interface is a little strange at first, but it does not take very long to become familiar with it and it can be quite useful. I do not have a touch screen monitor, although it works perfectly well with mouse and keyboard. My main concern had been the price because despite so many rumours of a very reasonable cost, Microsoft did not release any categoric pricing structure prior to launch. With the offer available at a great price until the end of January, I expect Windows 8 to become very populer indeed.

I start with stress the moment I hear about another update from a computer operating system. Each new thing means for me learning a new language with wich to be able to communicate in my own native language, the language of men. I like paper books, those awesome black phones that could be used to repell a thief, I like to fall in love face to face. DEar friend: I`m addicted to computer because there`s no way out, but it`s not the best way for me. Down with Windows8, 9, 10 and the rest of the evil creatures that will appear long after I`m gone
