Windows 8

Another technology upgrade that has not gone as well as the developers expected its Microsoft’s Windows 8

Pretty much an operating system designed for touch devices, Microsoft has taken the unusual step of releasing a major update only a short time after the initial product release (v8.1). This is because many users don’t actually have touch screens and many more don’t want to use them, preferring more traditional keyboard and mouse. Users also did not like the opening screen layout, preferring the more traditional Windows screen layout and functionality.

Apparently Microsoft will be releasing more updates soon to cater for these preferences. Somewhat of a backward step for them but good that they are listening to users – doesn’t happen often from the big corporations like Google and Microsoft.
