It’s a giant NEWS for all of us. A big day for Microsoft indeed, having more than 1000 certified PCs with Windows 8 in it sold up till now.

With Windows 8 another big thing that was launched today was Windows Store, full of applications paid and Free. Microsoft believes to turn tables with this start-up. Microsoft even claims about Windows 8 to be supporting more than 500 Million old peripherals and gadgets.

If we look back at Windows 7 we come to know that 670 Licenses were sold. Windows 7 was known for its fastest adoption. I am still a big fan of this OS. Loved the way it optimized my work flow.

Hi Ahmad,

I just want to ask that will it be available for every one ? Or will it has a price for this window ?
I have seen that windows 8 has a lot of features in it so i don’t think that it will be free ?

Thank you

I impressed by one thing which you mentioned in this post “”Windows 8 went through 1,240,000,000 hours of testing in public “” this statics will prove trust of users who all had used it.
