Windows 8 is an upcoming version of Microsoft Windows, a series of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, Microsoft Tablet PCs, and Home theater PCs.
Unlike Windows 7, which was intended to be a more focused, incremental upgrade to the Windows line, Windows 8 has been "reimagined from the chipset to the user experience" to connect more with the user. It features the Metro interface that is designed for touchscreen input similar to that in Windows Phone and on the Xbox 360. See more for video.
From now on, few select partners and testers will likely be provided privately with some more release candidate/release preview builds so they can see the final set of tweaks the Softies make to Windows 8 before the operating system is released to manufacturing. and of course, they are preparing a competent windows Market, so get ready for a new way to spend your money.
The most interesting thing I saw until now is that windows 8 will be driver friendly with windows 7. What that means? You can use all the drivers from windows seven to widows 8.
So first testing before releasing. The release date for Windows 8 has been set for October 2012. Until then you can take a look on the official video presentation from Microsoft HERE, or a more detailed presentation down.
