Windows 8 will be released in the second half of next year, probably in September, in advance, and Microsoft is trying to attract attention to the novelty.
At this time, the company reported that the new operating system can be purchased online and download the installer, which has already introduced 25-digit serial number. To install the downloaded files will need to burn to DVD, or copied to a USB stick – need 3 GB of disk space. Microsoft has worked seriously hard to simplify the procedure for upgrading the OS. We claim that Windows 8 will require only 11 mouse clicks, so that even the most novice user can install the operating system. As usual, you can upgrade to Windows 7, the eighth version, or install a new copy on another partition. Of course, to boot from the flash need to change your BIOS, but it’s not the most difficult action. A nice feature would also report on what applications will work after the update, so the lack of compatibility becomes an important program as an unpleasant surprise.
