Improvements to Windows 8….
Gartner Inc., a leading info tech research and advisory company, is giving the thumbs up to the soon-to-be released Windows 8.1, crediting the operating system refresh with overcoming the major downsides of Windows 8. Improvements include the ability to boot directly to the desktop rather than the Windows 8 Start screen & the restoration of a Start button on the desktop. Ready access to the desktop should make it easier for users to find a familiar interface, much like Windows 7. While Microsoft has been mum on many details, analysts expect little change to the Windows desktop, which would ensure high levels of compatibility with legacy Win32 desktop applications.
