Bill Gates talks about Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Surface
We are less than a week the launch of Windows 8, the revolutionary new version of the Microsoft operating system, which comes designed to give life to both tablets and traditional computers. A year ago was presented by Steve Ballmer, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the computer giant, but today Microsoft has released a video of the founder of this company icon talking about upcoming releases, nothing more and nothing less Bill Gates, who now devotes his life to philanthropy, but it has taken a couple of days to comment on Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Surface tablet.
It has been several years since Bill Gates gave the throne, or rather, the baton of leadership of Microsoft to Steve Ballmer, his friend and partner in this company throughout its existence. However, in this interview appears to clarify that you are aware of all launches and events involving the Redmond giant, and above all the support.
The philanthropist says that Windows 8 will revolutionize the technology industry, thanks to its stunning interface that gives new meaning to technology “Touch”, with its scroll and its organization by boxes in addition to the interface inspired look far call “Metro” that they have made native applications for the platform.
Bill Gates says:
“Windows 8 is a critical product of vital importance not only for Microsoft but for the entire market and computer technology in general. The reasons? Suffice to say, gives the user a tactile experience ideal for tablets and even low-cost devices, but without discarding the traditional experience of a personal computer, as well as a tablet computer running the new version of Windows can be used with fingers (if touch) or with a keyboard and a mouse and the PC that have existed over the years. “
Gates said that the importance of Windows 8 goes beyond “just be the new Windows”. There is an update either, it’s a complete renovation and refurbishment, which we can check to see your home screen or new buttons , to name two of their news.
“Windows 8 is a big change compared to what was used in previous versions of Windows. Only with the addition of the new app store and exquisite user interface, I can assure you it is a product focused on the path to where personal computers are heading. “
Bill Gates on mobile devices
On October 26 not only available in the Windows 8 market, but also one of the key products in this great year for Microsoft. Your tablet Surface , the first device of this type developed directly by the Redmond giant. According to Bill Gates, and has his own and could not be happier with the experience provided by this device.
“What I enjoy most is that Surface is a spectacular tablet offers all the benefits that entails, such as mobility, light weight and a beautiful touch screen, but also has what you expect of a PC, such as classic programs and all know, like Office. That is why I think the marriage of products and services we have achieved with Surface is unique. “
Gates also mentioned that Windows Phone 8 is a spectacular fusion of great service and the best possible interface for a smartphone-inspired Windows 8 and the new style that abounds in the Microsoft products (including Xbox). He is particularly proud of what we have achieved with the application store for Windows Phone 8, and they have gotten great support from the developers and their influx not only growing larger, in fact, there are over 100,000 applications for Windows Phone.
If there is something that I totally agree with Bill Gates when he mentions that the user of the new Microsoft products have great advantages. Why? Redmond Because they have devised to offer a great marriage between different platforms, accompanied not only the same, but a great timing. This I can not explain in words much more simple: if you have a Windows Phone 8, a Windows 8 tablet or computer and even an Xbox 360, you will have many benefits, from a similar interface that allows you to make the leap from one device to another easily, until the tablet streaming to the console and synchronization of contacts, services and files with SkyDrive, Skype and People Hub, just to name a few.
Steve Ballmer did not lie in saying that this is a new era for Mirosoft, which will begin on a year that has seen the company.Tags: Bill Gates, Surface, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8
