Windows 8 developer preview has been released by Microsoft for windows 8 beta test. Microsoft release this preview for get some feedback from the users before the final version launch. No wonder if it have some problem or uncompleted, because this is preview version. However I’m too curious and try to download before can install it. This is my experience when I tested this newest (will) microsoft’s operation system . below are the plus and minus of windows 8 developer preview:
Fast Installation progress. Like the previous on windows 7, windows 8 installation. I’m not faced any big problems after few hours like hang,crash and lag. I use Pentium 4.2 GHz with 2 GB ram.
Maybe this is the most interesting also for selling point on windows 8. The appearance just like windows phone 7 home screen. Colorful box that contained applications that already installed.
Just need 1 click to access the shortcut. Its look more simple, because you must double clicked it on other OS (that’s what I know) to open an application on your desktop shortcut.
When the application has opened, don’t shock when facing full screen without title bar, window frame, or task bar. This only happened on application that has been bundled on windows 8, then don’t worry about application by your own install. Just push windows button to back to home screen, and push again to go back to the application.
This home screen are unique because different from the previous windows, even from the others OS. The start menu actually not disabled, it just hiding. Pointing your mouse to the down-left corner, the start menu will appear.
DRAG AND SLIDE
I’m not sure, but this feature also interesting. How to do it? Just pointing the cursor on the left (CLICK + HOLD) until application window review, then drag to the centre, just wait what will happen…
Windows 8 can accepted some old applications and programs. Much apps and programs for windows 7 can run well on windows 8.
Annoyed with the home screen mode? You can switch it with your beloved classics desktop ( :P) by push window + D on the keyboard (remember window+D, not ctr + D,but you can press ctrl+D for this blog….lol).
BAD BUNDLED INTERNET EXPLORER 10
i try it on facebook, almost cant doing status update because the keyboard became not responsive, even some alphabet not appear.
Just one way/direction slide
When I try to doing opposite drag and I hope can back to the previous apps, but sadly nothing happen. Drag only can doing to the right side.
NO WAYS FOR CARELESS
What? No ways to the “careless” person on this windows. You will found your file on the bin with out permission when you deleted a file, on the other word "no delete warning"
ok, that's my review about this OS
see you on my future reviews...
