I had been using Windows 8 for the past few weeks. I am really impressed by its features and speed. All is well, except for a few! I don’t want to criticize Microsoft because I am damn sure that this version of Windows is not going to be a total failure like its predecessors Windows Vista and Windows 7. The integration of the Facebook Messenger and the Mail Box to the start screen is an additional cream over the hot delicious porridge that’s served right before me.But the unfortunate thing is the monopoly that Microsoft wants to establish is being reflected in its new OS.
- Microsoft’s Windows 8 doesn’t support Linux to run along with it.
They say that it’s security reasons. But the real business mind and the impacts of the Microsoft’s war that it had been waging for its dominancy for decades against Linux operating systems and its variants is reflected in this crap. Many users who wanted to keep two operating systems are very much affected by this SECURITY UPDATE that Microsoft had added to the new OS.
- The poor support for Google Chrome
The OS prevents Chrome from executing really fast as it does with other operating systems. This compels the Windows 8 users to shift to Internet Explorer for better speeds.
- The need for a Microsoft Account
Windows 8 wants its users to register for a Microsoft account. It’s really hectic to remember what password we had kept for all the email accounts when we have too many accounts here and there. Microsoft would have been looking for a boost up of the users who use their mail portals. I too had created one for it was something that one requires in order to make Windows 8 handier. I am damn sure that many people who had never been looking at live.com or hotmail.com would be having email accounts in either of them now for the same reason.
To win over the world shouldn’t be through a dominant approach. The real tactics and professional mind is one that is required for any company to prosper. I don’t say that Google is everything. But I really like the way they approach the world. They spread their web presence through their social networking site called Google Plus. The craze that the world has towards Facebook gave a blow to their attempts to be established in the field of social networking. Still, I believe that Google has a good stand in the minds of the people.
I don’t think that Adolf Hitler’s way is the right way, when the IT industry is concerned. I welcome diplomatic ideas which are not dominant. I hope that Microsoft will think of this at least by the time they publish their next release.
