Windows 8 preview and review by used
The New Start Screen
When you turn on Windows 8 for the first time, the difference between it and Windows 7 is immediately obvious. Instead of being greeted by the iconic Windows desktop with the usual Start button and toolbar, you’re introduced to the new Start screen with “tiles.” These tiles on your Start screen are not just enlarged desktop icons. They contain content, such as news headlines, weather forecasts, sports scores and even notifications from your favorite social networks.
