Many of you, yesterday shared the feeling of anticipation that has led us to expect the opening of the taps to download Windows 8 Preview Release over the whole day. At the end of the coveted link is here. The Release Candidate of Windows 8 is finally among us and even if it is available in languages from around the world except in Italian, we are all with the download manager active intent to pull it down on our PC. But what can we expect from this nearly final version of the system? And then, when the RTM comes out? If you seek answers to these questions and more, keep reading.
No one expected a revolution compared to what we saw in the Consumer Preview Windows 8, and in fact we can say that this Release Candidate of the new operating system Microsoft has more innovations under that over the "hood". Does not attract the eye of the average user, but fails to meet the needs of the maturity of someone who is streetwise enough to know that you have to do with an almost final version of the product.
To claim the first page in this release are the "light" version of the Flash Player built-in Internet Explorer, which will allow you to view content from sites like Hulu and Zynga also on the tablet, and Windows Store, with the Preview Release has been enriched new app, like Sports, Travel and News, which appear to have been made by Microsoft for developers say "see how it makes a real app Metro" with simple graphics, content, well organized and flawless integration with live tiles.
Still lack the new desktop interface without transparency that Microsoft has reserved for the final version of the OS. Apparently, Steve Ballmer and Co. want us to enjoy the transparency of Aero (that were the last miracle of technology and now have become a nuisance for the user ...) for a few more months.
What is waiting for us?
About a month after trying for a while 'Windows 8 Release Preview brings up a question. How long must we wait to receive the final version of the operating system? When the program is finalizing the RTM of Windows 8.
Unbelievable but true, the answer has already given us the head of Windows at Microsoft, Steven Sinofsky, that Windows 8 Building Blog has revealed that the RTM of Windows 8 will be ready within two months. Practically the same time Windows 7 RTM which was signed July 22, 2009 and that he came out in stores in October.
