Tech Kings at CES 2013 - The Future of Windows

 

Looking Back


 For a better idea of what goes on at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), have a look at some of the cool stuff we saw last year.

 

The Future of Windows

 

Windows 8

Details on the next generation of Windows continue to trickle in, often bringing up more questions than answers. Luckily, Microsoft gave CES attendees a very thorough demo of the OS at their CES booth, showcasing previously unseen features of the Metro interface. One very exciting bit of news is that Windows 8 will have support for ARM microprocessors in addition to the traditional x86 platforms we are all used to. But the new ARM systems will be hampered by a locked bootloader, leaving fans of open-source software out of luck.

By now you all know about Microsoft's latest OS and have possibly bought a brand new machine. Rest assured, the flood of new Windows machines has just begun, and some of the new form-factors are mind boggling. Sadly, Microsoft has all but eliminated its presence from CES with no booth or keynote, so our focus this year will be set on the OEMs.
