Introduction to Windows 8
Windows 8 is a personal computer operating system developed by Microsoft as part of Windows NT family of operating systems.
Development of Windows 8 started before the release of its predecessor, Windows 7, in 2009.
It was announced at CES 2011, and followed by the release of three pre-release versions from September 2011 to May 2012.
The operating system was released to manufacturing on August 1, 2012, and was released for general availability on October 26, 2012.
Windows 8 introduced major changes to the operating system's platform and user interface to improve its user experience on tablets,
where Windows was now competing with mobile operating systems, including Android and iOS.
In particular, these changes included a touch-optimized Windows shell based on Microsoft's "Metro" design language, the Start screen
(which displays programs and dynamically updated content on a grid of tiles), a new platform for developing apps with an emphasis on touchscreen input,
integration with online services (including the ability to sync apps and settings between devices), and Windows Store, an online store for downloading
and purchasing new software. Windows 8 added support for USB 3.0, Advanced Format hard drives, near field communications, and cloud computing.
Additional security features were introduced, such as built-in antivirus software, integration with Microsoft SmartScreen phishing filtering service
and support for UEFI Secure Boot on supported devices with UEFI firmware, to prevent malware from infecting the boot process.
Windows 8 was released to a mixed reception. Although reaction towards its performance improvements, security enhancements, and improved support for
touchscreen devices was positive, the new user interface of the operating system was widely criticized for being potentially confusing and difficult to
learn (especially when used with a keyboard and mouse instead of a touchscreen). Despite these shortcomings, 60 million Windows 8 licenses have been sold
through January 2013, a number which included both upgrades and sales to OEMs for new PCs.
On October 17, 2013, Microsoft released Windows 8.1. It addresses some aspects of Windows 8 that were criticized by reviewers and early adopters and
incorporates additional improvements to various aspects of the operating system.
