BATTLE OF THE OS: Windows 8 vs Windows 10

BATTLE OF THE OS – Windows 8 vs Windows 10: THIS IS A FACEOFF BATTLE BETWEEN THE TWO OS GIANTS.. BE PREPARED FOR BLOOD SHED..

It would be interesting to note that so many Windows users still use Windows 7, Vista and YES even the XP however, when the Windows 8 was launched, some of us (including me) were disappointed and we aired out our opinions. Apparently, Windows listened to us by providing us a beautiful update to the Windows 8 OS … Meet the Windows 10.

According to Tech Radar, The Windows 10 OS could officially launch as early as June 2015, but before the official release, Please read and of course tell me your opinions

1. THE RETURN OF THE START MENU

Remember when Windows 8 was launched and people were really talking about the lack of a start menu?, most people complained (like me) and we had no choice but to manage it like that, anyways to all the Windows 7, Vista and of course our XP users out there, Windows 10 kicked the Windows 8 in the chin by going back to the start menu approach. Whoopie!

What this means is you won’t have all those awkward big fat tiles taking over your screen.. can I hear an Amen! The anticipated windows 10 comes with a start menu bar just like the Window 7, though instead of those big fat tiles taking over the screen you now have them nicely placed on your start menu bar….. smooth 😉

2. GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER??? CORTANA!!!

Remember Cortana, well the Windows 10 slyed its junior brother (Windows 8 ) by having the Almighty ( well not so almighty based on this article)  Cortana feature. With the Cortana feature, you can now get a powerful search and personal assistant that Microsoft first introduced on its phones.

3. WINDOW 10 USERS GET READY TO BE NOTIFIED

Yes! If you have ever used a Mac laptop, you’d appreciate this feature. The Windows 10 is going to feature a notification bar where you can get alerts for new emails, Windows updates or security flags, just like your smartphones notification. The Notification appears neatly on your taskbar .. making it very easy to be  well notified 😀

4. KICK THE INTERNET EXPLORER’S ASS OUT.. IN COMES THE SPARTAN BROWSER

Remember the annoying browser called Internet Explorer??? well you won’t have to deal with it anymore as Microsoft is launching a new web browser for Windows 10, which is currently called “Spartacu.. sorry Spartan” :D, This browser comes with an annotation feature, a reading mode and of course it would be integrated with the Cortana app.

5.BANG BANG TO THE PASSWORD LOGIN

Microsoft has confirmed Windows 10 will support the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) standard. This means users will be able to sign into commonly used apps like Outlook using a variety of biometric tools from fingerprint readers to retina scanners.

6. SAY HELLO TO THE MULTI WINDOW

I am beginning to feel sorry for the Windows 8 because the Windows 10 can in no way be compared with the Windows 8 .. like no way!.. anyways, now users would be able create different desktops view on the same device, this would help separate your work life from your personal life this feature was gotten from the Mac OS.

7. GET READY TO BE MANAGED BY A BEAUTIFUL TASK VIEW.

If you a Windows user, theTask-manager feature won’t be a new thing for you, I am referring to the Windows 8, 7, Vista and even XP, well Get ready for the ride of your life with the Task view on the Windows 10, now you don’t need to press the CTRL ALT DEL to activate the task manager now the  Task View spreads out all your processes and running applications, even across multiple desktops, so you can easily move between active programs.
