How windows 8 differes from window 7

The differences which Microsoft Windows brings to windows 8 in comparison to Windows 7 are as follows-

Windows Touch friendly features
The main difference between Windows 7 and Windows 8 comes with its metro style interface that provides live title of rectangle shape which has replaced the icon pattern in Windows 8. In Windows 7 operating system, software shortcuts are in the form of icons. As far as the touch interface is concerned then Windows 7 supports touch interface but not that much, what was expected. So, Windows 8 comes with true touch interface for Metro style apps. It is fast way of accessing data by using an improved on-screen keyboard and handwriting recognition.

Windows ARM processor support
Windows 7 is fully compatible and supportive for x86 processors which is build for traditional home computers but the hint of Windows 8 operating system has changed this current scenario such that Windows 8 offers support for devices running on ARM processor. ARM processor designs are used for growing number of devices. Microsoft Windows is excited to implement ARM processor in its upcoming devices.

Windows based cloud computing
Earlier, it was not possible to store large amount of data on servers but cloud computing have made it possible. Windows 7 is not representing cloud based services but Windows 8 does. We know that Microsoft Windows will come with central cloud integration in Windows 8 operating system. It is representing synchronized data for a Skydrive which interface settings between PC's browsing and other photos which is being shared among multiple platforms.

Windows based apps store
Windows 8 operating system introduces new app store in which different apps is implemented for various devices and settings on right of the screen. The settings section includes contextual apps like volume, brightness, restart and power options. You can share content, links, app reviews, contacts, metro apps, facebook and twitter applications with your friends or colleagues. Windows 8 store offers both desktop apps and ecosystem for developers. On the other hand, Windows 7 OS is missing all these features.

Windows Start button replaced
On one side, Windows 8 is inheriting Windows 7 features like using same tile interface as used in Windows Phone 7 but on the other hand Windows 8 hints to Windows start button replacement. It is creating flexibility such that only best possible outputs are selected from Windows 7 and others are considered on basis of future predication.

Multiple monitors support in Windows
Microsoft announced that customers can use more than one monitor to connect with Windows 8 operating system. Windows 8 PC management allows customers to use multiple monitors at same time. It means Windows 8 offers flexibility by allowing start screen at one monitor and desktop in another. Customer can also choose taskbar on both screens with different icons on each monitor. Moreover, you can play with background images as well by changing it separate on each monitor. Such support is not available with Windows 7 operating system.
