So far the latest predictions show that the new Operating System from Microsoft is not going to be that great for the average desktop user. The new OS is Microsoft’s first attempt at an operating system built for PCs and mobile devices. It will offer many of the same functions as Windows 7 as well as a few new ones for the mobile side. All in all, it’s not going to be that big of a deal for the average user. Few if any upgrades from Windows 7 are predicted.
