About Windows 8 Features
So many complaints have been raised about the new interface in Windows 8 that many people have forgotten it looks exactly like the Windows Phone design, and somewhat like their favorite Android OS too. The minimalist user interface in mobile platform is indeed very popular, and Microsoft was simply following the same strategy, when they decided to ditch the old desktop UI in favor of a more touch-screen friendly design.
Windows 8 is the best Microsoft OS
As with any other new OS, it will take some time to get used to the new user interface and figuring out where all the options and functions are. With the previous Windows operating systems, we did not face this inconvenience, because as far the user interface was concerned, they were pretty much all the same. The changes brought in were mostly in the technical or functional aspects of the operating system. But, in the Windows 8 versions, Microsoft has started from scratch coming up with a completely new UI.
Indeed, you have to admit that the small taskbar and the crammed Start Menu are not suitable to use on a touch screen device. So, they were replaced with big icons that you can easily swipe or tap on a touch screen device.This was the whole point of introducing the Metro UI, which was to take Windows platform to the touch screen era. Though Microsoft’s attempt at creating a touch-screen OS did not go well, this can be easily fixed with some minor changes in the user interface in the future Windows 8 versions or updates. Windows 8.1 is a step in that direction.
