After more than a year of speculation, sneak peeks and early development releases, Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system will be announced and available this week. The new OS is completely different from the company’s previous products especially in terms of the user interface, touch integration and interactivity among the different elements of the software. It also more intensely integrates a user’s social activities, allowing for more collaboration and a wider flow of Web-based information across a user’s desktop and within the applications themselves.
