At the Mobile World Congress event held in Barcelona, Microsoft previewed the latest features and design of their upcoming Windows 8 operating system. The new software was showcased on various mobile and desktop devices before it was announced the consumer preview version of the OS would be immediately be available as a free download via their website.
The Windows 8 consumer preview is a follow-up to the Windows 8 Developer Preview, which was released last September. The difference between the two is the consumer preview includes more features such as wall-to-wall web browsing, full touch screen support, and of course the new look of the Windows 8 UI, making the preview closer to final product expected to come out later this year.
Windows 8 represents one of the largest changes we have seen to the operating system since its very first iteration. Hit the source below to check it out for yourself.
