In a bid to make the competition even stiffer, Microsoft has launched its much awaited new Windows 8 operating system for PC’s and tablets on Monday in San Francisco. With this launch, Microsoft plans to take a big chunk of tablet and mobile market that is currently ruled by Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android.

With the launch of new Windows 8 operating system, Microsoft has also launched a new tablet Surface to showcase the operating system and take on the new ipad mini and ipad 4 from Apple. Though there was limited surprise element in the launch as most of the information had already leaked much before, still there were bits of new information came out of Microsoft information which featured cute kids and Jessica Alba.

The new Windows 8 operating system has live updating squares and rectangles called Live Tiles instead of icons that can be customized by the user. Also there is a Kid’s Corner which is a limited mode for the phone that can be customized for the children. There are rooms that allow the user to group with people and share calendars, updates and selected information.

The new Windows 8 operating system is not just an upgrade over its predecessor, but a complete overhaul over the previous system. The new operating system is designed such that user experience and data can become more consistent across the entire line of Windows 8 products.

The operating system has Data Sense that monitors the data consumed and can modify the data usage according to the data plan used by the user. The new operating system also has Microsoft’s Sky Drive feature that the user can use to synchronize photos, videos and office documents across multiple Window devices.
