Any laptop or computer is as good as its operating system. I have been using Windows 7 for a long time and was very happy with it. However, recently I saw one of my friends using the latest Windows products Windows 8.1 and I have been inspired enough to change my OS. At work I have used Windows 8 and am completely smitten by the amazing features and technological brilliance of the operating system. Still I have to admit that certain improvements could be made on the same. In fact, I have not changed my home operating system from Windows 7 to windows 8 because I knew that Microsoft will come up with something even better. I was not wrong because Windows 8.1 has eliminated all these minor problems.
If you are still wondering about the benefits of using Windows 8.1 then let me give you a little brief about it.
Windows 8.1 has new applications and the old ones improved
If you have been using Windows 8 then you will know that there are many new applications. But surely some of them could have done better with technical advancements like the Mail and Photos. Windows 8.1 has worked on its own Mail and Photo application making it far better. Take a look at the web interface and enjoy the latest development on a big screen. With the latest developments in this operating system you could run three to four applications at one point of time that too with larger displays. The third party applications that you find in Windows products have also been bettered.
Better storage with the help of Cloud based storage system
My work is such that I need to store a lot of data on my PC. I am also very fond of my music and movies which I again store in my computer. That’s why I am absolutely thrilled with the cloud based storage system of this OS. It is much better integrated with back up and better syncing than that of Windows 8.
A lot of variety and choices for customization
It might not seem very important to a lot of people but I find it interesting and appealing to have many choices for customizing my system’s background. This operating system has better options, many colors, various settings, sizes and images for me to choose from. And I appreciate them all.
Places Skype in the front and center
I am sure like me there are many others who use Skype on a regular basis. If you are one of them then you will absolutely love the prominent position that it has got on Windows 8.1. Now there is much better quality of video and audio calling.
Better search options
Windows 8 already had a new and improved search option. Windows 8.1 tops that. Along with search results from your computer and sky drive you will get a result from Bing as well. The more information the merrier!
All these features and many more makes Windows 8.1 one of the best Windows products, if not the best of them all.
