After installing Windows 8 Consumer Preview you will notice it’s not at all like the Windows operating systems you’ve come to know over the past 25 years. The next version of Microsoft’s operating system (“Windows 8″ is just a codename) is designed around touch screens.
The new lock screen has a lot of information at just a glance. Although this was designed for using touch screen tablets Windows 8 will work on both tablets and traditional PCs. The operating system’s home screen is filled with big, touchable panels, like the live tiles in Windows Phone 7, and from there you can tap and swipe your way to other touch-based applications. But underneath that touchy layer is plain old Windows, with a task bar, file manager, app icons–everything.
