Windows 8 is innovative!

START Windows 8 is an innovative new software. Windows 7 was good? Windows 8 is even better. Start screen is personalized the way you want, with live tiles that you're able to customize to your benefit. DESKTOP APPEARANCE Used to the old Windows version? No problem. Windows 8 has a 'desktop' live tile/application that brings you right back to the usual desktop model. WINDOWS STORE Windows Store is amazing. Thousands and thousands of applications from tools - entertainment! Browse through and find your best ones! SNAP MULTITASK With Snap Multitask feature, you are able to multitask your tasks. Stay on Calendar while taking notes in the OneNote of your Microsoft Office. WINDOWS MEDIA Camera used for SKYPE is convenient! Photos feature: you are able to customize your background photo to however you would like. XBOX Music is HEAVEN. :)

Microsoft 8 has completely changed my PC experience. I used to think MAC was the way to go. The great apps as well as different programs such as SkyDrive most definitely changed my outlook entirely. I recommended Microsoft 8 so highly, that my mother has in fact invested in it. She now uses it for her job on a daily basis. I know as a rep, it's imperative that we show off Microsoft to the best of our abilities, but I am truly convinced that Microsoft 8 has changed PC systems dramatically in every way, shape, and form. A very interesting thing I discovered was the purchase of Microsoft 8 by one of my friends who owns a MAC. I'm not sure how he went about this but he was able to get the Microsoft Software for his MAC and it's the only system he uses now.

Windows8 is easy to use. It is definitely different from Windows7 and the live tiles take some getting used to. Its like visiting your favorite store but the place just got a makeover. It still has all your favorite things in it [plus a little more] and once you get the hang of it you wonder; how did Microsoft not have live tiles before? It is honestly great. Social media is easy since you are always connected and for those among us who refuse to 'get with the times,' the classic desktop look is always an option that can easily be accessed. It is easy to use, the live tiles are fun, and the windows app store is great. I would definitely recommend Windows8!

The Windows 8 system is very much made for a touch screen device. I especially like the multi-snap feature where you can have two programs running at the same time in the specified format. Some have complained that it is initially difficult to locate the shut down button. That can be found by moving your mouse to the right hand panel and then clicking on the settings button. You will then see several buttons including the power down button, the screen brightness adjustment and volume control. Overall, much faster than Windows 7 and a greater ability to make it unique to you.

Windows 8 has changed my academic and social life completely jus in the short time I've had this product. At first I was a little hesitant with the completely redesigned Windows; however, I soon realized I still had all the great features Microsoft has always provided coupled with endless innovative components, specs, and applications that have morphed my personal and professional life. I always feel two steps ahead of the game now due to the high level of organization and functionality provided by Windows 8. Thanks so much and keep up the innovativeness!
