Windows 8.1: The Operating System in Demand

Microsoft has tried to bring revolutionary changes in the tablet, pc and laptop market by bringing its first ever touch version of operating system called as Windows 8. From September 2011 to May 2012 it has brought about three pre-release versions of the ever awaited operating system. Finally it was released on 26th of October 2012. Windows 8 has brought about significant changes in the operating system’s platform stating rival to other mobile operating system like Android and DOS.

Review: Windows 8

Windows 8 has got mixed response from the technology world. It has got a very positive response towards the performance, security enhancement and improved support for touchscreen, while the new user interface has a very steep curve and it has been widely criticized for that. As predicted by the people, world over it hasn’t got so much sympathy and response. But Microsoft must take a very bold step and bring about significant changes in the operating system before it sinks down.

Step by step enhancement in operating system

Before the release of windows-95, there was point step increment in operating system such as there was Windows 3 and Windows 3.1. There were even Windows 3.11 and 3.2 and this was all due to fine tuning of Windows as it lacked many of the features, user demands and needs. After release of windows XP and VISTA, this type of tinkering lost its value as there was no numbering scheme. The point step upgrade was forgotten by people and there were no weekly patches. The Microsoft executives might have forgotten that there was this numbering system upgrade which brought Microsoft to the top. There was introduction of windows 7 which could have been upgraded to 7.1 or 7.2 but of course it never happened. The point step change as seen by the user’s psychological point of view is much active as there is always work done on new ideas and recompilation. Here the introduction of new patches and service packs makes it look like someone is repairing the damaged parts. To get latest updates about windows please visit

What should Windows 8.1 have?

The windows 8.1 version of windows 8 should have software changes which could pour out the glitches that are in the clunky touch screen version of windows 8. It will be helpful for the people using touch screen as it will help them to toggle it on or off as they want and also the problem of windows full screen application will be eliminated. It is obvious that for running the full screen application people would not go and buy the new 27 inches monitor for that. We all know that full screen is only wanted when we are watching any movie. Here the only idea is to have new compiled windows instead of having numerous patches. Google is much better in this Android version of operating system as they have a very old fashioned and double point upgrade system such as Android 3.1 or 3.2. Microsoft still has much opportunity to release a sensible and established version of windows 8 by bringing windows 8.1 in the market.
