As long as Windows 8 released, Windows phone Apollo 8 is coming out soon properly in October or Christmas’ day. But the real release date is not told by Microsoft yet. I believe all of us will keep our eyes on the accurate date to come. Here is the latest information about Window phone 8.

Here are three remarkable new features for Windows Phone 8.

1. Changes of Start Screen

Microsoft has officially announced that the new Start screen of Windows phone 8 in details. The Start screen keeps live tiles that show a lot of information for you in one screen but have more options for the size of tiles and the ways you arrange them.

2. Support for dual-core CPU based mobile phones

Windows Phone 8 will be able to run on dual-core CPU based mobile phones, supporting for multi-core hardware.

Since Windows phone 7 leased in 2010, 1GHz was the minimum mobile operating system requirement which updated to run on chipsets lower than 1GHz. Microsoft newly announced set of Windows Phone 8 manufacturers: Samsung, Huawei, HTC and Nokia. And there is no doubt that Nokia will be the first to support the new hardware using dual-core processors.

3. Removable storage supported

Windows Phone 7 needs 8GB (the minimum specification for internal storage) to run the OS but no support for portable micro SD cards. However, as Windows Phone finally sorts out its SD card support, WP8 supports for removable storage like micro SD cards.

The Micro SD cards can be used to store music, photos and video, along with the installation of apps. So, Windows phone 8 might have the internal storage requirements dropped to be 1GB or less might be the new standard.

At last, I think Windows Phone still needs to catch up with the other smartphone operating systems (like Android) on features. We’re still getting our ears on a proper release date of Windows Phone 8.

We have so many personal data on our mobile phone that we also have choices that losing all files on it. So, what if you accidentally deleted some photos you took on your phone, or something you need just gone missing? Is there any way to recover data from Windows phone? Look at this Windows phone data recovery solution.

As you may know, Microsoft company is going to make a big announcement June 16, 2012. A tablet running Windows RT will be the main topic. I’ll tell you what I knew just now.

So, what is Windows RT?

You may have heard that Windows 8 and Windows RT are different. Microsoft is going to make a part of the latest Windows 8 version to run on ARM processors called Windows RT. As with Windows NT, what does “RT” actually mean? Why on it is named similar to WinRT ( the shortened name for Windows Runtime)? I believe that most of us people can’t understand it. Hold on! WinRT is not the abbreviation for Windows RT? They are not the same thing? No! Do not mistake WinRT for Windows RT!

Windows Runtime (which is called WinRT) runs on both Windows 8 and Windows RT. I refers to the collection of APIs that developers can write software interacted with hardware. But Windows RT is named for Windows 8 on ARM but is a special edition of Windows 8.

Windows RT tablet

What is ARM?

ARM processors power virtually all iOS, Android, and other mobile devices on the market. ARM has gained so much traction in large part because of its better battery management.

So, how to distinguish Windows 8 and Windows RT?

There are several differences between Windows 8 and Windows RT which may cause Windows RT to fail while Windows 8 succeeds.

1.Windows RT can run only on ARM-powered devices.

2.Windows RT has a Desktop mode, but it will be restricted to pre-installed, Microsoft-produced software.

3. As Windows RT comes device encryption.

4.None of x86/x64 apps runs on Windows RT.

What apps can run on Windows RT?

If the applications can run on Windows 8 Metro, they can run on Windows RT. It looks like no way to easily distinguish Windows RT based on tablet from Windows 8 based on tablet, which could result in buyer confusion.

It is no doubt that both consumers and manufacturers are interested in Windows RT. Let’s look forward to it’s release.

Windows OS  is a series of graphical interface operating systems developed, marketed, and sold by Microsoft company.  Windows operating system dominates the world’s PC market since it came out till today, overtaking Mac OS (Released 1 year earlier than Windows). As we all know that Windows operating system is available for several version including Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and the latest version Windows 8 so far.

What is the suitable Windows version for your own choice?

Many computer new users may have asked this question for million of times. But the answer to this question can be told easily. It depends on a lot of facts. Theses days, Windows 8, which just came out,  is the latest version available but do not consider it as a perfect version to you. Similarly, Windows 7 is the most flexible Microsoft OS (operating system) to date, but some users will have ample reason to stick with Vista or Windows XP until Windows 7 is on store shelves. A lot depends on what you are using your computer for and on which type of computer you’re using. Gamers, media authors, travel-inclined business people and casual web surfers all have different priorities and will want to choose OSs accordingly.

We’ve provided a brief outline of the basic features and key uses of Windows 7, Vista and Windows XP to give you an idea of which OS is right for you. More detailed information about each of the Windows versions can be found in our hands on reviews above.

Windows 8

Similar with the other versions of Windows OS, downloading Windows 8 Preview version just takes a few minutes for a 4 GB download. Comparing to other versions, the installation of Windows 8 is easier and needs less keyboard typing. It’s main layout is surrounded by ther interface of Metro. So we can tell that Metro is the biggest difference on the visible layout of Windows 8. It is built around a tablet model with large buttons showing the most used applications of each windows users. All the functions and settings for Windows 7 are hiding but you can easily get back to the Windows 7 interface by click “Desktop”.

Windows-8

However, it is a pity that the typical start menu of  Windows is gone in Windows 8 so that, to open or run a particular program, you have to pin the program’s name into the task bar. In my own opinion, Microsoft Windows seems to be under the lead of Mac OS to develope something that appeals to the novice. For the computer begainner, Windows 8 is much more easy-to-use, which allows them to look at the local weather, their stocks or their Facebook information, twitter, etc. by clicking on a big icon.

In a word, for most of us that familiar with Windows 7, Windows 8 hides the things that makes Win 7 so amazing. However, for those of us who want to use computers to make documents, worksheets, programing and drawing, we are not satisfied by Windows 8 performance. The one last thing I can say, I’m looking forward to Windows 9, or Windows 10?

Windows 7

Windows 7 has hit the computer world with a bang and is turning heads around the world. One thing that stands out about Windows 7 is the ability to personalize and make it your own in layout, alongside this comes new and advanced features such as Snap, Shake, Pin, Windows Search and much more. We are in a new age so a new fresh interface and look of Windows 7 are welcome changes, especially compared to Vista.

Windows-7

Windows 7 has some highlight features that the earlier versions do not have, including plug and play capability with hardware and peripheral devices, Completely customizable task bar, Jump lists, Homegroup networking, Low memory footprint.

Windows Vista

We all know how bumpy Vista’s release was. Vista operating system was demanding, awkward and aggravating. But do not think Vista is a bad operating system just because it’s failure at release . Many Vista users prefer to continue using Vista even Windows 7 and 8 released.

In comparison with XP, Vista contains many changes and new features, including an updated graphical user interface and visual style dubbed Aero, advanced protection from malware, parental control options, a redesigned search function, multimedia tools including Windows Media Center, Windows DVD Maker, Windows sidebar and redesigned networking, audio, print, and display sub-systems. Vista aims to increase the level of communication between machines on a home network, using peer-to-peer technology to simplify sharing files and media between computers and devices.

Windows XP

Despite the fact that XP has been around for years, it is relatively forgiving on older machines and netbooks. XP continues to have a great reputation amongst gamers due to its low impact idling and compatibility with both old and new programs. Users with specific multimedia demands that don’t want to upgrade their hardware will find XP an appealing alternative to the more demanding Vista. As of April 2012, Windows XP market share is at 27.3% after having peaked at 76.1% in January 2007. All of us have to commit that Windows XP dominates the world’s personal computer maket for years since it came out.

Windows XP OS

Windows XP still owns several classic features that the above versions can’t overtake, including: Faster start-up, Driver rollback, Low system requirements, Low memory footprint.

Why You Choose this Windows Version?

When determining which version of Microsoft Windows OS is most suitable one for you, you need to consider more about what you use the computer for. After all, the aim to choose a operating system that fits you most is to make your life and work more comfortable.

After reading this article about Windows Review, I think you can make up your mind that which Windows is the best choice for you.

Error messages like missing xxx.DLL files, NTLDR is missing, BOOTMGR is missing or other indications that there is a problem. Here are some helpful information to help you out restoring the lost or corrupted system files with System File Checker (SFC).

System File Checker is a built-in utility Windows operating system that allows computer users to look for lost system files and restore corrupted system files in Windows. It is available on Windows 98/2000/XP/server 2003/7/8. As one part of Windows NT OS families, Vista scans lost/corrupted system files via Windows Resource Protection. It will scan all protected system files and replace incorrect or damaged versions with copies from a backup cache or from an installation disk or folder.

Malware infections are one source of this type of problem so make sure your system is clean before trying repairs. Also, System Restore is easier to use and should be tried first if possible.

1.    Open a command prompt on “Start”.
2.    Type “SFC/scannow” and enter to start scanning.

What you need to do after restoring your WIndows
In order to ensure that you have the latest Windows versions, You’d better to check out whether it is a Windows Update available for your current Windows OS after you had restored the lost or corrupted system files.

What’s more, for my own experience, preventing from corrupted Windows OS is regular backups for your whole operating system. However, when helping other people (who didn’t back up) System File Checker does a good job and every Windows user can get it for free.
