Windows 8

On February 29th, 2012, Microsoft released Windows 8’s consumer preview, which is simply a beta version of Windows 8.
Immediately following its release, consumers began noticing that for the first time since Windows 95, the start button had been removed from the bottom left corner of the windows menu. Why? Because Windows is attempting to adopt their metro-style user interface- a new interface which focuses on touch screen capabilities.
Metro-Style applications run full screen, and will be purchasable through the windows store.

Does it feel like windows keeps upgrading on you? Well, perhapse that is because it is.
Take a look at the current time tables:
October 25th, 2001, Windows XP was released.
January 30th, 2007, Windows Vista was released.
October 22nd, 2009, Windows 7 was released.
February 29th, 2012, Windows 8 consumer preview released.

What’s going on at Microsoft?
