Charms – Windows 8.1 preview observations…

Windows 8 introduced the Start Screen, as it did many other things – full screen Windows 8 style apps, Charms, a more intensive touch based interface, the Store, XBOX games for Windows, etc. To me, that’s everything I could do in one package. It, in addition, does what no other touch OS can do – viewing two apps at a time. Of course, Windows 8.1 now changes that to allow a maximum of four apps per screen without any possible disadvantage of the side view. Still, until the latest update gets to it’s full release, most users would have got used to, if not already, the side-snapped view.

Windows 8.1 preview has been made publicly available and after a day of using it we love it more than would to have a stable internet connection; seriously, this post should have been up days ago.

This year at WWDC, Apple unveiled a lot of things they’re bringing out for the rest of the year. Honestly, I’m the most thrilled about the next version of OS X. Sure iOS had a major overhaul, but I won’t be thinking about it until and unless I own an iOS device.
