Windows 8, Windows 8, Windows 8
Day 2 Keynote seemed all
about Windows 8. Fast, fluid, windows reimagined! Microsoft has determined that we
don't use our PCs like we used to. Heck, we don't use PCs anymore (at least not
as much) like we did when Windows 95 first came out. Wait, what? Who uses
Windows 95 anymore? Well, according to Microsoft, Windows 7 is pretty much based
on Windows 95. Huh!
So, today, instead of PCs,
now we use laptops and smart phones and tablets. Time for a "reimagined" OS. Windows 8 and Metro apps.
Windows 8 will have its very
own App Store (hmmmm, sounds
Everything's touch based and
will be smart enough to run well on these many different devices. Windows 8 will
also take advantage of the fact these devices are mostly connected to the
Internet. Connected communications. Store data, not locally, but in many
different places, in the Cloud. It all seems very promising...
