Windows 8 Released

Today marks the release of Microsoft’s new operating system, Windows 8. If you where thinking that you’re looking forward to the latest release, wondering what the new start menu or taskbar might look like? Well you’re in for a big surprise.

It’s well publicised that there is no love lost between me and Windows 8. This is mainly because of the vast different between Windows 8 and it’s predecessors. It’s just so much different from everything else Microsoft have released before. So if you’re looking for familiarity then maybe you should stick with Windows 7.

It’s not all bad

Microsoft have historically charged a small fortune for Windows, usually costing anywhere between £100 and £300 depending on version. They have completely changed this up for Windows 8 though. If you want to upgrade to Windows 8 then it can cost you as little as £14.99 and with the full DVD version costing less than £50.00 then it is cheap enough for you to take punt.

There are things you can do to make Windows 8 work like a traditional version of Windows (this is what I will probably be doing if I run Windows 8), this coupled with the cheap price tag associated with Windows 8 then you may want to consider upgrading. Personally, I qualify for the £14.99 upgrade offer so I might buy a copy just to play around with. You can buy Windows 8 from the Windows 8 website.
