Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
An IT consulting company based out of Toronto, Ontario, Eyes Everywhere is devoted to supplying IT management and support to a wide network of clients. Working within a 100km radius of Toronto, Eyes Everywhere is a company that understands how much the workplace had changed in modern times. As many businesses do not have the capacity or the economic leeway to keep an IT professional on staff, Eyes Everywhere can provide IT services from a distance. In spirit of IT support, Eyes Everywhere is happy to share its thoughts on the new Windows 8.
Aesthetically pleasing, the new Windows 8 is cloud-based. The system is designed to act as a cloud for the Windows 8 phones, Windows RT and SkyDrive (as well as related sites, so think http://www.msn.com). Upon the launching of the program, users are greeted with the Windows interface. The icons and images used are completely flat, unlike the previous version of Windows. New applications appear on the screen to greet users (they take up the entire screen), with the applications organized into categorized tiles (these can be changed to better suit the user’s app preferences). This interface is in place to encourage users to use the ecosystem—the desktop is still available under the interface. While Windows 8 encourages the use of applications, the desktop is still available for more traditional users.
While the desktop is very similar to past versions of Windows, it lacks one key feature—the start menu. Instead, users can drag icons into the dock, or reach a simplified version of the start menu by right clicking in the lower left corner of the screen. This might drive users a little crazy at first, but it is pretty easy to get used to.
As for the touch-screen: Windows 8 is both touch and mouse sensitive, allowing users to stick to using the method that is most comfortable to them.
In all reality, many of the benefits of Windows 8 can be found beneath the surface. Windows 8 provides improved storage space (File History), making backups easier than ever before. Windows 8 also offers System Refresh, a great program to restore a system while retaining any information that was saved before the damage was incurred. So to put it simply, Windows 8 is offering a much better recovery system to users.
In short, Windows 8 has exceeded expectations. Much like this article has pinpointed the advantages of upgrading to Windows 8, Eyes Everywhere is capable of managing IT systems, regardless of the problem. The company is also proud to support Microsoft and its products, and is ready to accommodate any technical issues relating to the new software.
