This guest post is contributed by Lauren Bailey. With Apple and Amazon making headlines daily for their tablets, fans of Microsoft products might feel a little bit out of the loop. Microsoft’s latest splash in the headlines was their Windows-powered Nokia Lumia smartphone, recently released in the UK to rave reviews from tech and consumer analysts alike. But other than Lumia’s limited release, things have been relatively quiet for the software giant. Microsoft has been steadily introducing updates and patches to Windows 7 OS—most recent updates address key security issues that strengthen the operating system’s code from hackers—but fans already have their hopes heaped on the upcoming OS, Windows 8. The OS is set to be released sometime in 2012, but already tech enthusiasts are waxing poetic on the possible new features offered by the Windows 8. But more realistically, people wonder how the OS will work with the latest hardware. Below is a brief overview of the more dramatic changes Windows 8 is expected to bring to compatible hardware.
