All new Windows 8 operating system has been already well received by the audience and claims to be working much better than its predecessor. However users seems to be confused over the new metro-style tiled interface. Specially without having the usual ‘Start’ button. But the new OS seems to be working great on tablets.

All new “Windows Store” has been opened to support the new operating system, along with many other features to offer thousands of apps and service in one place for all the customers of over 1000 Windows 8 devices, which lands on markets today.
