It’s nice to be back again with something special every time for all of you.  Am an operating system freak may it be mobile version or desktop version. To completely erase my love on Music am trying to divert myself to work upon reliable source. Personal things apart, there are a lot of buzzes everywhere in www about what will be unfilled in the new upcoming Windows 8; numerous of its features look cool and inspiring. At this juncture I would like to enlighten you with 10 of them, not in particular order that I really like.

1. User Account Roaming

Well, this is not innovative but what is innovative in Windows 8 is that you can roam your user profile to the cloud along with your own Windows Live account. still undisputable how much successful it would be to address the business network, but it does sound like the Windows Live cloud might be able to work as a domain controller in a way to move corporate to the cloud computing.

 2. The New Windows Explorer

The Ribbon lastly arrives in Windows Explorer, subsequently years ago when it was firstly presented in Office 2007. Whether you like it or not, Ribbon appears to be the method to go as a Windows user edge. I like it. The fresh Windows Explorer also finally permits you to drag a file and drop it to a folder itemised in the address bar. A missing piece has finally been found.

Ribbon is becoming the standard UI on Windows system. I myself like it a lot.

The innovative design was prepared based on the usage survey Microsoft team steered. Apparently, only 2 out of the top 10 commands the end users invoke in Explorer are available in the Command Bar, the chief UI element for invoking commands. This seems to be a bad failure in current Windows 7 but also means a big improvement that can be made in Windows 8.

 3. Restore to Factory Settings

Restoring Windows system back to factory settings is nothing new. Almost all manufactories have included the recovery disc in every new computer sold that can already to do that. But an option restoring back to factory settings on only systems not user data is what I am really looking forward to.

4. ISO mounting

Lastly, one more long time misplaced piece has been found. Why took so long? Now, one more 3rd party tool will be eliminated on my computer.

 5. Smart Screen on Windows

Smart Screen built in Internet Explorer 8 & 9 look like will be arisen not only in IE but in OS itself as well. This will be stimulating to see whether or not this will be the anti-virus software out of the box. It also can be used as a File Download Verifier.

6. History Vault

This Microsoft version of Time Machine is a better version of Shadow Copy? Sound like it is. Windows rumours

7. Better Reading Experience

Not only does Microsoft finally develop its own version of PDF reader, but is the modern reader also an e-Reader that utilizes the new AppX application package type.

8. Portable Workspace

Fundamentally, it’s a feature that allows user to run Windows system right from a USB storage device. An portable office indeed. Really, if you can have all your application and data stored on an encrypted flash drive and are able to run on any computers why would you still need a cloud service?

9. Xbox Media Service in Windows

No surprise at all, considering the huge success Microsoft made on Gaming area with their extremely demanded Xbox.

10. App store

Well, even though I am not a huge fan of this, an Windows app store seems inevitable, all because of the huge success on Apple’s App Store.

* I will come back to you all once I study them in very elaborate way, till then happy reading *
