Windows 8 vs. Windows 10
Definition of Windows 8
This version of Windows was developed in 2012 by Microsoft after the latest success of Windows 7. There were some issues left to resolve in the previous windows and improvements were made to overcome them. There were also new features such as multiple views and tablet like options to accommodate the multiple devices but lacked the compatibility with other devices. There were significant changes made in the user interface for tablets because Windows now had to compete with Android and Apple for smaller devices. The response to these windows was a mixed one since most of the new features although increased its importance, everything was scattered here and there, and people found it difficult to find the things they needed easily. The very next year Microsoft had to introduce Windows 8.1 which made took into account the criticism labeled on Windows 8. There were many features in this operating system which were different from the previous ones so people found it difficult to get used to them in such a short time.
