The world of Windows tablet hires may see a brand new operating system within the next few months.
During a press conference in May, Tami Reller (Microsoft Chief Marketing Officer & Chief Financial Officer) announced that the project known as Windows “Blue” would be available by the end of this year. Windows Blue will trade in its name and become Windows 8.1 – a brand new operating system that Reller says will be available as a free update from the Windows store.
Windows 7 was a revolutionary operating system for Microsoft, and gained massive popularity for students, professionals, and home users alike. With the recent release of Windows 8, the world of tablet rentals saw a major evolution. Windows 8 was specifically optimized for use with mobile devices – the operating system has a sleek design, quick response time, and stunning interface.
The Windows Surface Pro tablet is just one of those released with the Windows 8 operating system. An excellent alternative to the iPad, Windows Surface Pro tablet hires run on an Intel processor and include an optional removable type cover that allows users to type faster than on screen.
Technology fans eagerly waited for the opportunity to test drive the Windows 8 operating system, and the responses have been largely positive. Of course, with the release of anything new there are critics, and that’s where Windows 8.1 comes in. Several professionals have sounded off about what changes they would like to see from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. One Forbes writer says that his biggest hope is to see more uniformity with the OS’s Internet Explorer setup. In fact, application consistency between modes appears to be one of the most universally desired features for the Windows 8.1 update.
What can we expect to see in Windows 8.1 tablet hires? While Microsoft is not marketing the system as such, 8.1 will essentially be a Windows 8 service pack that addresses the glitches and works in new features that were lacking in 8.0. However, we will only truly know what changes Windows 8.1 holds when it hits the Windows store in late 2013.
