Windows 8 vs Windows 10: Which One Is The Saner Version?
Microsoft has finally unwrapped their newest Windows version. With this, you'll have the ability to install an unfinished, free "technical preview" version which as released just this week. Its final form will be released next year and it's to be called "Windows 10".
A lot of people have been asking why it's called Windows 10 and not Windows 9? While this question makes a lot of sense, knowing the answer is just like solving a puzzle that has taken a special pattern. So far, we've got this: Windows 1, Windows 2, Windows 3, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
Today's Windows 8 was a superimposition of two operating systems that featured a TileWorld interface. In some instances, Microsoft has referred to this as Metro or Modern, though both terms have retired, already. Then, there's the typical desktop.
These two environments are different. Each one has its own "Help" system, its very own "Web Browser", email program, control panel, gestures, conventions, and programs. The regular programs of Windows open at desktops; however, the TileWorld applications only open in the TileWorld, without menus that overlap windows, such as iPad applications.
At that time, sometime in 2012, Microsoft believed that everyone was going "touchscreen-crazy" and that sooner, all PCs would have a "touch screen" interface.
Windows 10, today, has eliminated all "unwanted" things that came with Windows 8, namely:
- Keyboard & Mouse Mode: The Start Menu is brought back; TileWorld is gone to block the rest of the monitor.
- Tablet Mode: If you're not using a keyboard and mouse, you'll still have the TileWorld- a "Start" screen and blocs of applications that fill the entire screen.
- Brand New Features: There are a number of useful features, also. The search results will present a list which entries are generated from both the computer and the web. There, also, is a brand new task" view that shown miniatures of all opened windows. This can be accessed when you hit a taskbar button.
