A new OS expected to be launched
This is the new unofficial web page for the Windows 9 beta Operating System. There’s finally some news about the new Windows 9 we and you are heavily anticipating. According to brains behind Microsoft, the operating system will be launched in about 4 years and it will feature considerable changes.
First of all, the 9th version will feature a standardized interface towards which all of Microsoft’s devices will be moved. As an example, the Launchpad will be added in OS X Lion; this one is very useful, since its aim is to arrange the user’s icons in a grid pattern the same way they are arranged on the iPad. Experts don’t think it’s a good idea and view it as just a poor alternative to the current dock featured on OS X.
The improvements and features
Secondly, Windows 9 will be the first operating system to support only the 64-bit version. Thirdly, manufacturers will move all of their systems to this version, which translates into one OS and much improved security (we can’t wait to experience that, since Windows 7 is among the most secure ones nowadays).
Fourthly, Windows 9 won’t have to feature legacy support because of the move to the 64-bit version.
Finally, the future Windows 9 is rumored to provide excellent speed, attracting new features and overall superior performance to those on its predecessors.
However, the engineers from Microsoft has just launched the beta version of Win 8, with a totally changed interface and a lot of impressive features.
