Microsoft previews Windows 8

Microsoft offers a preview of the new functions they are bringing to the latest version of the Windows operating system. Microsoft has offered its most extensive preview so far of the forthcoming Windows 8 operating system.

Having learned its lesson the hard way with Windows Vista, Microsoft offered assurances Thursday (02-June-2011) that its upcoming Windows 8 operating system won't require users to buy a new PC.

As it works to bring its touch-enabled Windows 8 operating system to market, Microsoft is trying to extend its influence over PC makers to ensure they build systems that are best able to run its new software.

Demonstrations of Windows 8 running on tablets, phones and desktop computers were given at separate conferences in the US and Taiwan.

As expected, the software can be used via either traditional keyboard and mouse or by gestures on a gadget's touchscreen.

No date has been given for the release of Windows 8 but it is expected to be available before October 2012.
