MULTI-TASKING SPECIAL: WINDOWS 8

Windows 8 OS

Windows 8 is the next thing to look out for by those who prefer sliding through many tasks at once with just a touch.

The technological advancement we have been hearing is being developed since 2009 by the Windows people is finally being launched in June this year. The enigma I am talking about here, which bids the collaboration of the "best-of" features of tablets as well as PC, is the Windows 8 operating system, including a tool that allows users to run full-screen Metro apps across multiple monitors.This OS is supposed to be easy to use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, net-books, tablet PCs, and media center PCs.

The OS has been specially developed to provide a full "user-experience", so that a connect to the user can be formed. It features the Metro interface that is designed for touchscreen input similar to that in Windows Phone and on the Xbox 360.A version of Windows 8, called Windows RT, also adds support for the ARM processor architecture in addition to the previously supported microprocessors from Intel and AMD.

Drag and Drop becomes the new game for the users as many Metro apps can be easily dragged and dropped on the multiple screens. A user can also access the start menu and configuration of the task-bar can be done to run through the multiple-screens. The cosmetic changes that can be applied to the Windows, gives the user the experience of different background on each new screen.

Secondary monitors will show hard corners that help make sure mouse users don't overshoot screen boundaries. The corners are designed to provide help when one needs it and to get out of the way when one doesn't.
