Windows 8 is considered to be the biggest change in decades to Microsoft‘s widely used operating system and delivers a fast and fluid experience, along with a new user interface that responds equally well to touch as it does to keyboard and mouse.
Windows 8 Release Preview is available in 14 languages and includes several improvements from a less-refined version released three months ago. The upgrades include more ways to connect to other Microsoft services and more security controls.
The release preview is different from the consumer preview and add lot of new apps like Bing Travel, along with news and sports apps, as well as gaming and music Xbox apps. Microsoft says the Mail, Photos and People apps have also been improved.
“Customers testing the Windows 8 Release Preview will also experience tens of thousands of refinements across the product, such as increased personalisation options for the Start screen, improved multi-monitor support, refinements to the way people find and download apps through the Windows Store, and new Family Safety features,” a release said.
“The new Internet Explorer 10 redefines browsing, particularly for touch-enabled devices. The Web is as fast and fluid as any app, and with new capabilities in the Windows 8 Release Preview such as ‘flip ahead’, it is just as intuitive. A touch-friendly and power-optimized Adobe Flash Player is now integrated into Internet Explorer 10, and it is also the first browser to feature Do Not Track ‘on’ by default, giving customers more choice and control over their privacy.”

The Release Preview version will be the last that will be offered for free to the public before Microsoft completes its work on the final retail version of Windows 8. That should happen later this summer and Windows 8 is currently expected to be made available for sale to the public later this fall.
From June 2, Microsoft will roll out the Windows Upgrade Offer in 131 markets. Consumers who buy eligible Windows 7-based PCs before January 31, 2013, can purchase an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for an estimated retail price of $14.99.
