By now everybody with even a little bit of interest in technology must have noticed that WINDOWS 8 is out. The advertising is almost everywhere as much so as being in your face.
Windows 8 will be available in 109 languages across 231 markets worldwide.
Reviews and comparisons from people who already have used this product mentions useful features like not needing a antivirus anymore due to the Window’s antivirus “windows Defender” already built in , the operating system being more snappy and loading faster , and the desktop search being much better than windows 7. With most Australian Technology retailers now advertising and retailing windows 8, expect some hot competition and advertising to flog this product.
Microsoft also said PC makers such as Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Samsung and Sony were also now taking pre-orders for machines with Windows 8 pre-installed. Expect price comparisons to bring down the price of this software by retailers as time goes by .
