Microsoft's next operating system is going to attempt to elevate a mobile OS to the desktop.
Code-named "Windows 8" by Microsoft, the next-generation OS is also expected to be touch-friendly and work seamlessly on tablets, desktops, and laptops. Microsoft gave an early demonstration of the new look and capability of Windows 8 at the D9 conference.
The system requirements for Windows 8 won't be more than what's required for a PC to run
Windows 7, and it will run on Intel, AMD processors, and ARM chips.
