Windows 8 - Review

The windows 8 consumer preview is out to public and it does feel different, rather it is different. This windows is more made with touchscreen users in mind than the PC users. This version of windows has integrated with multiple services like facebook, google, linkedin, flickr. Using these new apps and hubs with a touchscreen can be a joy.
