Since the release of Windows 7, Microsoft has been working hard on the follow up Windows installment, today we have some new info about it. According to the news that have been going for some time, it seems that Microsoft has begun to ship the first test versions of its new operating system Windows 8, to PC manufacturers.
It seems that Microsoft is putting a lot of effort into Windows 8, and according to leaked news, Windows 8 will have features especially made for tablets. In addition to that, Windows 8 will be the first operating system from Microsoft that will be able to run on low-powered ARM processors which again are usually found in tablets. Additionally, Windows 8 will boast improved designs that will be optimised for touchscreen displays.

At the CeBIT Global Conference in Hannover, Germany, Intel Manager Steve Peterson, attending said that USB 3.0 would become mainstream with the implementation of the next iteration of the Windows client operating system, Windows8. Intel is working with Microsoft to make sure that the hardware will work with Windows 8. It will fully support USB 3.0 Windows 8 integration. Although products featuring the USB3.0 technology have been release after the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the current expectations for USB 3.0 are that only high-end PCs will feature USB 3.0, as a general rule.
Intel expects Windows8 and the continuing evolution of computers to make USB 3.0 readily available. But, Intel, however, is not optimistic when it relates to the mainstream adoption of the technology. Apparently the technical details and specification to overcome are still problematic.
