GREENSBORO, N.C. - Aug. 18, 2013 - PRLog -- Windows 8 is the highly anticipated update to the most popular operating system in the world. As Windows transitions from computer system to also having mobile phones and tablet devices, Windows 8 is a fully encorporated system that will sync across all of your devices. That said, there are many positives and a few negatives to be understood about the latest update. Here is a list of what you may like and dislike about Windows 8.

Flawless Integration Between Devices
Without wasting any time, its important to mention how smooth and perfect Windows 8 runs on multiple devices. This update of Windows was a major overhaul and it’s proving to be worth any wait. Once you acclimate yourself to how Windows operates on any of your devices, you’ll notice that the same layout works throughout all devices. This is especially true if your computer system has a touchscreen, as it is nearly identical to the tablet version of Windows.

Program Management
Windows 8 steps aside from the business aspect that Windows has offered, but now has a more modern setup that makes it fun to play with. The way that programs are managed is unique and creative. Now instead of just clicking on an application, you can see how all of your apps are managed to match up with other similar apps. Furthermore, background apps run smoothly without slowing down the entire system.

Lightening Quick
Windows 8 is the fastest operating system to date for Microsoft. Within seconds of booting up, your computer will be ready to go and launch programs. This runs well even with programs you have set to automatically start on startup.

Multi-Monitor Support
If you’re someone who runs two or more monitors with your computer, Windows 8 really shows how to maximize your real estate when you hook up your devices. No matter what screen your using, you’ll find helpful taskbars and applications that you can launch, without finding your way back to your home screen to search through your list of programs.

Adjustment Period
If you are someone who has been using a Windows operating system since the first time you ever turned on a computer, you may have a hard time adjusting to Windows 8. To say it’s different is an understatement and it certainly will take some time getting used to. However, once you learn how the system works, there’s no reason that you shouldn’t enjoy it and see how easy it is to use.

Lack Of Older System Support
Windows 8 doesn’t work well on older systems, which can be a shame for people who recently updated to a new computer or those who simply have no reason to upgrade anytime soon. This can be a major problem when it comes to supporting old computers while still trying to integrate the new features that 8 has to offer.

In all, Microsoft Windows 8 has a lot to offer and is a great operating system. Its completely new and edgy for Microsoft and establishes their position as the most popular operating system in the world. And once 8 catches on and is on more devices, more people will learn to love the ease and convenience that Windows 8 offers.
