The release of Microsoft Corp.’s Windows 8 is getting closer. Users of Microsoft Corp.‘s operating systems might be in shock as Windows 8 brings revolutionary changes. New Windows 8 has got a completely new look that will force Microsoft Corp.’s customers to learn how to use it.

Break with the past

Microsoft Corp. is certainly making a revolutionary break with the past as it is struggling to stay relevant in a world where smartphones and tablets have dominated the market. New Windows 8 operating system is expected to tie together Microsoft Corp.’s PC, tablet and smartphone software with one look. One question remains: “Are users ready for this radical change?”

The new Microsoft Corp.’s Windows 8 operating system brings radical changes that represent a departure from Windows Vista, Windows Me and the recent version, Windows 7.

Those users of Microsoft Corp., who decided to install a free preview version of the new Windows 8 operating system, have learned that working with this software requires throwing away a lot of what they know about Windows.

Certainly new Windows 8 is the biggest revision of Microsoft Corp.’s operating systems since Windows 95 was introduced. Operating systems of the company make its former chief executive officer, Bill Gates, one of the richest man on Earth.

However due to growing popularity of smartphones and tablets, the personal computer industry is in big troubles. These days computer companies are looking for something revolutionary which will get sales increasing again. According to IHS iSuppli, a market research firm, PC sales are expected to decrease this year for the first time in 11 years.

In this ongoing battle Microsoft Corp. has designed an operating system that works on tablets, personal computers and laptops. Microsoft Corp. has decided to release Windows 8 and Windows RT. By launching them the company, however, is taking much riskier way than Apple Inc. Apple Inc., the Curpertino-based company, markets separate operating systems for Macintosh computers and for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Not ready for Windows 8

Michael Mace, chief executive officer at Cera Technology, noted: “I am very worried that Microsoft may be about to shoot itself in the foot spectacularly,” adding that Windows users might feel lost.

The release of Microsoft Corp.’s Windows 8 operating system is expected to be the savior of the computer industry. However both PC makers and analysts are skeptical that new Widows 8 will lure users away from smartphones and tablets. Paul Otellini, chief executive officer at Intel Corp., expects the bounce in PC sale during the holiday shopping season to be half of what it usually is in spite of the release of Microsoft Corp.’s Windows 8.

But Mary Jo Foley, an analyst at UBS, says that nothing is sure when it comes to new Windows 8. Microsoft Corp.’s Windows 8 operating system could either be a big success or it could be a big failure. Microsoft Corp., however, will do whatever it takes to make a success of the release of new Windows 8. The launch of Microsoft Corp.’s new operating system will be supported with $1 billion in advertising.
