Finally the wait is over and Microsoft has released the almost final build of next generation OS i.e; Windows 8 Release Preview build 8400. It’s Windows reimagined and reinvented from a solid core of Windows 7 speed and reliability. It’s an all-new touch interface. It’s a new Windows for new devices. And it’s easy to try now—whether you’re installing it for the first time, or moving from Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
To answer most important queries that might be striking in your mind let me make it clear that-
- Windows 8 RP still boots with metro UI
- Windows 8 RP still lacks start button
And as this is the almost finalized build one should not expect them to change in coming final release.
Windows 8 is designed to be the first Windows client to support systems on a chip (SoC) architectures, including ARM, and since it will be pre-installed on a range of next generation devices, it will also feature Metro, a NUI + GUI interface on the surface combined with a new application platform under-the-hood designed to enable the creation of immersive experiences.
New improvements and add-ons to Windows 8 Release Preview:
- Additional new apps powered by Bing, including ones for Travel, News and Sports
- Improvements to Mail, Photos and People apps since Consumer Preview
- Increased personalization options for the Start screen
- Improved multi-monitor support
- Refinements to the way people find and download apps through the Windows Store;
- IE10 is also the first browser to enable Do Not Track “on” by default, giving customers more choice and control over their privacy
- More settings and configuration options
- Improved performance and stability
- Integrated Flash in IE10
- More effective Windows repair tools
There are a stack of smaller tweaks and enhancements everywhere and many other things that no one noticed yet. Apps page is now loaded with 44 free applications from sports, news, games and many more other useful system utilities.
Current Release Preview Metro apps are updated with a range of improvements, like Internet Explorer’s “Flip Ahead”, it predicts the next page that you may like to visit, then lets you click a button to jump to it-thus, now you are free from search of tiny links all around the web browser. By default this feature is turned off now due to heavy traffic that may be generated with “most likely” link for every page that you may visit.
