This came about after the company released their final test version of the product overnight.
This new Windows 8 OS is considered by many as the biggest change in the company’s operating system. The Windows 8 displays applications in a mosaic of tiles and is designed to run on laptops, desktop computer, tablets and smartphones.
Sales of desktop computers have declined in the US as individuals opt to buy mobile devices.
The recently released version of the Windows 8 has 14 languages and has seen improvements from the version released about 3 months ago. The update includes additional ways to connect to other Microsoft services, better security controls and touch screen features.
The company has not revealed the release date of the Windows 8, though some analysts believe that this will most probably come on September or October.
Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, shows signs of optimism with their new baby. He said in a speech, “It’s really, in some senses, a dawning of the rebirth of MS Windows… It’s certainly the most important piece of work we’ve done.”
He also describes this new OS as “deepest, broadest and most impactful” Windows software created.
