Microsoft launched the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 on February 29


Microsoft launched the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 on February 29.

By going with the “Consumer Preview” name rather than the traditional beta, they are emphasizing that the operating system ready for everyday users to try on their x86/x64 PCs and tablets.

What the Windows 8 CP has to offer?

Microsoft officials acknowledged that the the early Developer Preview bits were not optimally navigable using a mouse and keyboard — despite the fact that Microsoft is touting Windows 8 as a “no compromises” experience that will work equally well on touch tablets and PCs and regular laptops and desktops. Microsoft officials said last October that there would likely be improvements coming in the future around mouse scrolling, app-switching and how app-search results are displayed.

Testers using the Developer Preview haven’t gotten a good perspective on how Metro-style apps will work on Windows 8 because only a few sample apps were available in conjunction with the preview bits. Microsoft is expected to release more Metro-style apps with the Windows 8 CP — and to open its promised Windows 8 app store at the same time.

For those users who have no experience with the Developer Preview version — Windows 8 is going to look very different and feel unlike previous versions of Windows.

First-time Windows 8 testers downloading the bits will have different experiences depending on what kind of devices they’re using the operating system. Windows 8 is designed to be a touch-centric operating system, meaning it will be best experienced and appreciated on a touch tablet or touch-enabled PC.

The x86/x64 version of Windows 8 allows legacy apps (with any associated browser plug-ins) to run on the Desktop. The ARM version of Windows 8 will allow only a few Microsoft apps to run on the Desktop and no plug-ins. But Microsoft isn’t making the ARM bits available to testers to download; instead it will provide them some time, starting in the coming weeks, to select partners and developers preloaded on ARM-based testing devices.

Below are photos from the Hotel Miramar in Barcelona where they announced the latest operating system - Windows 8 (Consumer Preview).

I've been surfing olinne more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more
