Windows 8.1 is getting ready to hit the market

While Microsoft© is struggling to move users off Windows XP, They are working hard on their next major update for Windows 8 called Windows 8.1 (code named as Windows blue).
Win 8.1
Windows 8.1 makes sense because people did not receive Windows 8 as happier as they did it with Windows 7.Windows 8 is still on the lower side in market share with just around 3%.Windows 8.1 will provide more customization features in start screen (metro UI) and is expected to bring Internet explorer 11 which implements a lot of new features and a more safer web browsing.There are some news about the option of selecting start screen or start menu,but there is no confirmation from Microsoft about this.Microsoft will typically want users to get used to start screen instead of relying in the good old Start menu.Start screen is not bad either it’s a big better place to start with really.It’s the big learning curve which keeps the users away from Windows 8.
Windows 8.1 is expected to hit the market this summer.Microsoft has not announced about the type of upgrade for Windows users,It is ought to be like a Service pack with a bunch of new features.Some of the articles from internet state that this will be given as free upgrade for Windows users but the redmond giant has kept quite in this matter.
Windows 8 Start Menu
However, If you use Windows 8 then this may be a must upgrade for a better windows experience.Let’s see if it can change the current trend set by Windows 8.

Microsoft Windows XP is going to XPire soon.

It is one of the hardest thing for some people while it is a boon for Microsoft to get rid of the most vulnerable OS. We are just 365 odd days away from the day when XP will get expired.
Windows XP has crossed many years with us and has achieved a number of milestones too. It was the one only OS which had the market share of 90% and above. But old things get rough and XP is not a exception too. This OS has been suffering with high level of security vulnerabilities.

Good bye XP it is time to move on to a better and newer standard compliant OS like Windows 7 or Windows 8...................
