Microsoft recently launched its next version of Windows 8 along with the Microsoft Surface tablet at an event in New York as it looks to crawl back some of the market share from Apple who currently dominate the market.
Microsoft’s new operating system which will run on tablets, computers and hybrids is a completely new system which has been built from the ground up and has been designed to work with other Microsoft devices as well as touch screen devices.
Windows 8 will go on sale from 30 October and will cost as little as £14.99 in the UK if you already have a computer running Windows and is eligible for an upgrade.
The operating system will otherwise cost you £24.99 from the Microsoft website or high street retailers such PC World.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer confidently claimed that:
“Windows 8 brings together the best of the PC and the tablet. It works perfect for work and play and it is alive with your world. Every one of our customers will find a PC that they will absolutely love.”
