Microsoft revealed Wednesday the next generation of its OS, internally code-named “Windows 8.” A re-imagining of Windows, the new Windows 8 is built so that interaction can be either by touch or with a mouse and keyboard.
Microsoft says that Windows 8 is “fast, fluid and dynamic, the experience has been transformed while keeping the power, flexibility and connectivity of Windows intact.” New aspects in the new OS highlighted by Microsoft are as follows:
“Although the new user interface is designed and optimized for touch, it works equally well with a mouse and keyboard. Our approach means no compromises — you get to use whatever kind of device you prefer, with peripherals you choose, to run the apps you love. This is sure to inspire a new generation of hardware and software development, improving the experience for PC users around the world,” said Julie Larson Green, Microsoft Vice President, Windows Experience, in a statement.
