    Re: Can you tell me what are the five important reason to upgrade older version of Windows to Windows 8?

    Touch Screen Support - The most obvious change is that the Metro interface has been designed with touch control in mind so that anytime it can be installed and used in touchscreen device such as an all in one PC. In the same time traditional keyboard and mouse input is still supported too so you its like a 2 in 1 OS now where you can upgrade the hardware and experience the real usage of the touch in Windows 8 or use it as normal Windows OS in the PC.

    Apps - The OS acts more like a mobile when it comes to apps with the Windows store, where you can browse, download and install the apps designed for the Metro interface of Windows 8. There are very few apps as of now like Maps, Photos, Messaging etc. but there will more apps introduced when Windows 8 comes live.

    Cloud Service - Windows 8 has a cloud focus to it which is very much used in every field now a days. So now in Windows 8 whatever data’s you stored can be accessed from different machine from the cloud.

    Device and Backward Compatibility - Windows 8 works in every machine flawlessly without any problem let it be 27inch PC 15inch Laptop or 10inch tablet it works fine in all those machines properly. The resolution changes accordingly to the hardware which we are going to use so every process are optimized in that way. Backward compatibility is nothing but it as the apps which it work with and also the same old applications which works in Windows 7 too.

    Task and File Management - A couple smaller and handy tweaks have been made to the Task Manager and File Manager where is some real - time graph is shown to display the transfer speed. The app which are running will not be closed but goes to sleep state where it automatically closes when the memory cycle pool needs the resource. This ultimately have payed the way for increase in performance and efficiency.

    So these are some of the important reasons where you can go and check what Windows 8 all about and it’s worth giving a try.

    • Internet Explorer 10 will be included both as a Metro-style app, which will not support plugins or ActiveX components, and a desktop version which will maintain legacy plug-in support.
    • Ability to sign in using a Microsoft account. This will allow for the user's profile and settings to be synchronized over the internet and accessible from other computers running Windows 8, as well as integration with SkyDrive.
    • Two new authentication methods: picture password, which allows users to log in by drawing three gestures in different places on a picture, and PIN log in, which allows users to authenticate using a four digit pin.
    • Windows Explorer will include a ribbon toolbar, and have its file operation progress dialog updated to provide more detailed statistics, the ability to pause file transfers, and improvements in the ability to manage conflicts when copying files.
    • Hybrid Boot will use "advanced hibernation functionality" on shutdown to allow faster startup times.
    • Windows To Go will allow Windows 8 to boot and run from a bootable USB device (such as a flash drive).
    • Two new recovery functions are included, Refresh and Reset. Refresh restores all Windows files to their original state while keeping settings, files, and Metro-Style apps, while reset takes the computer back to factory default condition.

    Re: Can you tell me what are the five important reason to upgrade older version of Windows to Windows 8?

    It's the cheapest upgrade in the history of Windows. Microsoft is offering Windows 8 for the surprisingly low price of just $40 -- at least for the next few months. Even if you don't have any immediate plans to upgrade, at that price, it might make sense to grab a copy now and just put it on the shelf for a few months until you're ready to experiment.

    Sync with the cloud. Windows 8 finally embraces online storage and online synchronization, and it does this in both big and little ways. You might already know that Microsoft's SkyDrive service is now baked into both Office and the Windows file system, so you can save and open online files from pretty much anywhere. But what might be less obvious is that your overall PC settings are synced to the cloud as well. That means if you have more than one computer running Windows 8, they can all share the same personalization settings, so you only need to configure one PC and all the others will fall in line automatically.
    File History lets your open previous versions. Recent editions of Windows have had a little-known feature called Previous Versions, which (on a good day) let you recover older versions of files in case you needed to "roll back" to something you did a week or a month ago. It was well hidden and difficult to use. But Windows 8 has built on the foundation of Previous Versions to give you File History, and it promises to make it much easier to recover older versions of files.
    There's an app store. You might not think this is an especially big deal, but it is. Microsoft doesn't talk about this much, but the Windows ecosystem -- the community of developers writing and releasing new software -- is in decline. Windows might still be the biggest OS on the planet, but developers are abandoning it in droves to release apps for sexier platforms like iOS and Android. By supporting developers with a store, Microsoft hopes to reinvigorate the platform and bring fresh, exciting new software to Windows. Without a store, Windows best days might well be behind it. And that means Windows 7 software will continue to get less and less varied and interesting.
    One paradigm for all your devices. This has been an off-again, on-again strategy for Microsoft since the 1990s, but imagine for a moment how simple life would be if all of your computing devices -- from PC all the way down to your tablet and phone -- worked pretty much the same way, and even shared settings and personality. That's what Windows 8 offers -- assuming you like the experience of using the OS to begin with, you can transition from Windows 8 on the desktop to Windows 8 on a Surface tablet to Windows Phone 8 -- even the Windows 8-like interface on the Xbox home entertainment system.

    Internet Explorer 10 will be included both as a Metro-style app, which will not support plugins or ActiveX components, and a desktop version which will maintain legacy plug-in support.
    Ability to sign in using a Microsoft account. This will allow for the user's profile and settings to be synchronized over the internet and accessible from other computers running Windows 8, as well as integration with SkyDrive.
    Two new authentication methods: picture password, which allows users to log in by drawing three gestures in different places on a picture, and PIN log in, which allows users to authenticate using a four digit pin.
    Windows Explorer will include a ribbon toolbar, and have its file operation progress dialog updated to provide more detailed statistics, the ability to pause file transfers, and improvements in the ability to manage conflicts when copying files.
    Hybrid Boot will use "advanced hibernation functionality" on shutdown to allow faster startup times.
    Windows To Go will allow Windows 8 to boot and run from a bootable USB device (such as a flash drive).
    Two new recovery functions are included, Refresh and Reset. Refresh restores all Windows files to their original state while keeping settings, files, and Metro-Style apps, while reset takes the computer back to factory default condition.
