Recently, Microsoft showed the world in greater detail what their latest operating system -- codenamed Windows 8 -- will look like, and how it works.
From the reports that are swirling around the web, there is one thing we can be sure of. Windows 8 is extremely versatile.
The gist of it is that Windows 8 is built to work in multiple environments. It will be at home on a tablet, a laptop or a desktop.
There's also an app store where users can download programs, just like Apple's app store.
Mashable also stated that everything will be faster, and that includes start-up, shutdown times, launching of apps and so on.
It also uses a smaller footprint that even Windows 7, allowing it to be used on any machine that can handle Vista.
