Win 8 Vs Win 7

Hello friends…
I have not got the Win 8 still but I am enjoying the Win 7 platform very much. Can anyone suggest me what are the main difference between the Win 7 and Win 8?

Re: Win 8 Vs Win 7

The most immediate and fundamental difference between Windows 7 and Windows 8 is the main interface. The Metro interface looks and feels like a smartphone or tablet OS, and following that theme is the inclusion of the Windows Store in Windows 8.

Yes the first look of the Win 8 is splendid as compare to the Win 7. The themes and the background are perfectly incredible.

Re: Win 8 Vs Win 7

Yeah, it might look good, but about the functionality... The Metro interface is the only good part. I went back to Windows 7 after a few days with 8.

Re: Win 8 Vs Win 7

Windows 8 is Microsoft's first step towards moving into a unifying ecosystem.i.e combining Mobile OS and the Desktop version of the operating system.
So you would see the same start screen on Windows Phone and Windows 8 and same kernel shared among the operating system.

Windows 8 is usable with desktop form factor and laptops as well as for the tablets with touch screens while Windows 7 is not optimised for Touch based usage.Windows 8 has better out of the box security than Windows 7.

Re: Win 8 Vs Win 7

I'd say Windows 8 looks better than Windows 7, however if you don't like change and you do a lot of "business" work I'd say stick with Windows 7. With Windows 8 you have the Metro design, which irradicates the start button. It's good for an all in one or a tablet, but for a PC I feel it's not designed for. It's all down to personal choice.

Well i don't agree on that part!it is designed for every purpose and the Desktop mode is there for a reason!It provides support for all legacy apps which work on Windows 7 just like it works on the older version.Use of Start Screen is optimized for tablets and desktop mode for legacy apps usage so it's not just for tablets but for all form factors.

Hello.

These are some of the key differences in Windows 8 and Windows 7.

Windows 8:
Formatted for tablets or touch screen laptops/desktops. (This is because of the swiping features on the Windows 8 home screen.)

The taskbar is quite a bit different than Windows 7. Being the fact that the start up menu doesn't come up when pressing the Windows icon on the bottom left. Instead, the Windows 8 Home Screen pops up.

Windows 7:
Taskbar is different in being that there is a start menu on the bottom left hand corner that brings up a search bar and lists of your programs.

No Windows 8 Home Screen.


As you can see, there really is no big difference in between these two software systems. They are pretty much the same but they have different formats.
