Windows 8 is one operating system that’s faced its fair share of malignance in the two years it’s been in the market. Right now people have something to diffuse their anger at the way the platform failed to heed traditional PC users – Windows 8.1. This update allows users better interfacing with the OS, bringing back such iconic and principal elements as the Start button.
Moving on to the functional aspects of Windows 8, there are a few questions you’ll get from users that aren’t overly bothered about interfacing. For some of them compatibility takes a higher priority. If a user’s outlook is performance oriented, then they’d probably ask “is Microsoft Office 2010 compatible with Windows 8″. If not, what productivity applications work in this OS?
As it happens, the majority of Office 2010 versions work just fine on Windows 8. Despite its other flaws, the OS does actually step up a lot of the computing possibilities, and take away little of actual worth. Marketing of this product failed mainly because it took away what people were used to, and not because it wasn’t worth transitioning to. Its main aspect is that it can speed up computing, in several different ways. And with regards to cloud connectivity and operations, there’s no Windows OS which can beat it.
Microsoft has held the reins over the laptop market for a long time, but failed to hold on after Google brought out its android tablets. It took more to convince users that computing was still stronger on their old PCs, when they actually thought they didn’t need this anymore. But few people can manage with just a tablet device and no PC. And there’s quite a big
portion of computer and tablet users concerned with the question, “”is Microsoft Office 2010 compatible with Windows 8″. This signifies that some of them have actual work to do on their machines, and that comes with the need for a sufficient setup.
Windows 8 can run on the more powerful ARM devices, which is a change from the previous tablet version of Windows, which had to run the OS on Intel processors. But it’s being overshadowed right now by its successor Windows 10, which is still in preview stage. People love it, and they can’t wait for it to come out, mainly because it looks more like Windows 7.
