Windows 8 is finally here. People who have been following the product during its development and tried its Release Preview will not be surprised as the Release Preview is not that different from the RTM. The only major difference is the cancellation of Aero Glass transparency from the Window’s desktop, instead, the RTM is on DNT (Do Not Track) as its default settings. The best thing about this version is that following the testing and the preview release stage, it is smooth and polished and it managed to fix all of the rough edges and bugs that came up during the preview and the testing stage.

Windows 8 has revolutionized the meaning of Windows and how it operates, it changed the fundamentals of how it works and how users interact with it. For instance, Windows 8 is oriented to be used for tablets and touch screen, far more than previous versions of Windows.

Windows 8 also features better versions of the Modern UI styled applications such as Messaging, Mail and Calender. Although these apps along others are more sleek and useful instead of frustrating but Microsoft knows that there is more work to be done in enhancing these apps. Microsoft has also released a 170 MegaBytes update for Windows 8 in order to enhance its battery efficiency, power management and its performance.

As for the requirements, users are going to need 1 GHz CPU, 1 GB Ram, 20 GB of disk space alongside a Direct X9 graphics card and a WDDM driver.
