     Windows 8 has been released and is expected to be drastically better in terms of performance—has the new operating system lived up to its hype? In a new two-part (https://blog.tune-up.com/news/windows-8-versus-windows-7-performance-shootout/) blog post series (https://blog.tune-up.com/news/windows-8-stress-test-how-3rd-party-programs-ruin-the-new-oss-performance-2/), TuneUp determines that Microsoft’s “biggest bet” actually does boast performance and reliability improvements over Windows 7. However, TuneUp’s benchmark findings show that third-party programs weaken Windows 8 performance, tripling the total boot time and decreasing battery life by more than a quarter. The outcome suggests that all computers, no matter how advanced the operating system, become sluggish with each additional application added, and that TuneUp Utilities 2013 (http://www.tune-up.com/products/tuneup-utilities/features/) can help bring PC performance back to normal.
