With the launch of Windows 8, Microsoft was treading a familiar territory, of brickbats and accolades. Although the earlier versions haven’t fared really well, the hope was still on. There are some bases where Windows 8 does score over its predecessor Windows 7.
No doubt the Windows 8 operating system is much smoother and faster than the Windows 7. For a novice, the main concern of the computer starting up faster and shutting down faster is all what matters and the 8 version takes it from the Windows 7.
Windows 7, a mature version though, takes it slightly from Windows 8. The graphic performances of 7 were a shade better than 8, but they more or less match each other.
Windows 8 feature much better in the multimedia division. Managing files, playing music and videos is a better experience than Windows 7.
Browser speed and performance of IE remain more or less the same, but as far as Chrome and Mozilla are concerned, Windows 8 gives a better performance.
With Windows 8 compatible to the earlier programs and apps, upgradation from Windows 7 to 8 is easy as butter. Windows 8 takes the cake and eats it too as far as speed is concerned, which is what matters in the end whether it’s for working or gaming, isn’t it.
