Microsoft Windows 8

Windows 8 is a personal computer operating system developed by Microsoft as part of Windows NT family of operating systems. Development of Windows 8 started before the release of its predecessor, Windows 7, in 2009. Windows 8 introduced major changes to the operating system’s platform and user interface to improve its user experience on tablets. In particular, these changes included a touch-optimized Windows shell based on Microsoft’s “Metro” design language, the Start screen (which displays programs and dynamically updated content on a grid of tiles), a new platform for developing apps with an emphasis on touchscreen input, integration with online services (including the ability to sync apps and settings between devices), and Windows Store, an online store for downloading and purchasing new software.

N version means that the windows version doesn’t include media application(Camera, Music, dan Video). K version means that the windows version doesn’t include communication application (Calendar, Mail, Messaging, dan People). User may download the media and communication application separately.

Released as part of a shift by Microsoft towards regular, yearly updates for its platforms and services, Windows 8.1 was primarily intended to address complaints which Windows 8 faced from users and reviewers on launch. Visible enhancements includes an upgraded Start screen, additional snap views, additional bundled apps, tighter SkyDrive integration, Internet Explorer 11, a Bing-powered unified search system, restoration of a visible Start button on the taskbar to open the Start screen, and the ability to restore the previous behavior of opening the user’s desktop on login instead of the Start screen. Windows 8.1 also added support for emerging technologies such as high resolution displays, 3D printing, Wi-Fi Direct, and Miracast streaming.
