PROS and CONS of Windows 8 OS
Windows 8 is a new OS and still haven’t released in the market, but it’s developer preview version is already released.After trying that version I have pointed out some Advantages and Disadvantages of Windows 8 Operating system.Here are some of them
- Super Fast Bootup. (But its definitely not 8 seconds.)
- Clean and elegant look.
- Metro UI is awesome for touch enabled devices.
- Compatible with old Windows 7 softwares.
- HTML5 based apps mean easy virtualization over networks.
- Simple Social Network and Syncing Integration.
- Upcoming App Store will help bring more innovative apps to this platform.
- Touch Friendly IE is fun to use. But no flash support for that !
- Apps don’t really close in Metro UI, they are suspended after a certain interval of idleness.
- Since the Apps are based on scripting languges, it consumes more resources.
- Power user will miss the main menu.
- Metro UI is awesome for touch, and sometimes feels clumsy without it. The gestures are generally not intuitive using a mouse.
