Reasons to upgrade to Windows® 8
Debate regarding the modernistic style of Windows® 8 has detracted from the overall enhanced functionalities. Here are our top 8 reasons to move forward with the upgrade:
1) Refresh, Reset, Data Security
The new Windows® 8 operating system is simpler and clearer to use. It allows mobile devices to perform a simple system restart that will set to the factory setting point. The Refresh function clears the system but saves data in the user’s folders. The main advantage of this is that an installation medium is no longer needed since recovery is directly from the default backup located on the system part of the disk. This remains secure since only the administrator has write access on C:/ and system folders.
2) Enhanced GPU Acceleration
Windows® 8 has been optimized for DirectX® 11.1 which leads to quicker JPEG file access. The new modern interface is also based on vector graphics enhancing overall performance.
3) Quick Start
Improved start up speed is one of the most noticeable improvements in Windows® 8. Classic BIOS notebooks take 20 seconds to start. Computers with SSD disks start up in less than 20 seconds.
The new Windows® 8 offers the new functionality of synchronization of settings with mobile devices. Automated synchronization can be set up based on user desires and requirements.
5) Windows® 8 Store
Like Google® and Apple®, Windows® now has its own store that features new applications as well as classic Microsoft Office® products. The goal is for the Windows® store to be the primary source for all installations.
6) Touch Functionality
Windows® 8 offers options that include a virtual keyboard, improved touch algorithm and gestures for display.
7) Easy Migration
It is very simple to switch from the new design into the desktop that does not feature changes but will perform with increased safety, improved speed and stability.
8) Affordable Upgrade Available
An inexpensive upgrade will be available for the first few months following launch to entice users into upgrading. For standard customers, an upgrade will be available for nearly next to nothing.
