Windows 8 is built on the
rock-solid foundation of Windows 7, but it is been improved on all fronts. You
can install Windows 8 on the same hardware that powers Windows Vista and
Windows 7, and you will love how it works on new devices, too. Windows 8 was designed
with Windows 7 apps in mind, because you probably have older apps you need to
In addition to the new look of the Start
Screen, Windows 8 incorporates the desktop that you are familiar with. Think of
the desktop as one of the many apps you can run in Windows 8. In the desktop,
you will see all the settings, devices, and features you used in Windows 7 and
you can run the desktop apps you ran in Windows 7, too.
Sign in to your Windows 8 device with
your Microsoft account and you are immediately connected to the people, files,
and settings you care about. Your PC comes to life with all the things that
make Windows yours, including your Start page, themes, language preferences,
browsing history, and browser favorites. You can connect your favorite services
to your Microsoft account, too, like Hotmail, Messenger, Facebook, LinkedIn,
Twitter, and more. And you can immediately get to your photos, docs, and other
files, whether they are on SkyDrive, Facebook, Flickr, or other services.
In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse great apps, all grouped in
easy-to-find categories. We highlight great apps for you and provide quick
access to frequently downloaded apps. You can also see how other people have
rated apps. You will always know what is interesting, new, and popular. You won't
have to worry about buying something you don't want because you can try before
you buy, if the app supports it. If you try an app and like it, you can buy it
and continue using the full app with no interruption. You won't waste time or
lose your place.
