Unlike Windows 7, Windows 8 is separated into four main versions in which there’s only two consumer versions that you can pick from, Windows 8 or Windows 8 Professional. The two other versions have more specific uses, Windows 8 RT is made for touch screen devices and Windows 8 Enterprise is for those with businesses.

  5. Recording is depended mainly upon what hardware you have and less on what windows you are using.
    So for instance if you are having 8+ ram, decent processor and a good graphics card you will be able to record with fraps at a reasonable framrate (framrate is how many images per sechond you see and most screens are limited to 60) but if you are using an old bucked powered by pedals, it doesen't matter if you use windows 8,7 or 95, they will all lag.

  6. Windows 8 Pro for games and the apps Windows RT for document and to call to your friends like Skype or to use internet explorer only

    But windows 8 pro for all apps and other

  7. Q: What version of Windows 8 do I nead?
    A: None
    Win-7 is better than Win-8 in most peoples opinion. You can buy an Apple, you can run Linux, you can just use an Android device. Windows-8 is all about"I want" not "I need". Business applications are only now getting fully ported onto Win-7.

  8. i have a question. do i have to install Microsoft Office separately that compatible to windows 8 or it will included in windows 8? because i'm not a heavy computer user. i'm usually use it for standard operation. and i'm not really understand IT. but i want to learn though.

  9. Good explanation! So what you are saying is if you have your own personal network setup at your home or office that consist of multiple computers then Windows 8 Enterprise is for you! If you are a programmer then Windows 8 Pro is for you! If you are a PC amateur then Windows 8 is for you! If you own a tablet & want to upgrade it to Windows 8 or purchase a tablet/computer (mean one that comes with a keyboard (meaning ultra book computer) then Windows RT is for you! @logiclounge… Am I right?
