In a grand event earlier today, Microsoft finally launched the latest and greatest spawn of its widely popular operating system here in the Philippines. Windows 8, which replaces Windows 7 as the crown jewel of the Big M's brood, is now locally official after about three years of production. Sa wakas!
As with its predecessors, Windows 8 was met with praises and criticisms, and was showered with a fair amount of hype and expectations. As for us, we'll tell you one thing: it's unlike any Windows version we've seen before, which is a good thing. After all, tech is all about innovation, right?
Scroll through the gallery below for the Windows 8's most awesome features, which should tell you why Microsoft has another potential game-changer on its hands.
Note: The Windows 8 retail box is available for $69.99 (about P2,900) while those running XP, Vista, or Windows 7 can download it for $39.99 (about P1,650). Local SRPs will depend on the retailer. For the system requirements, click here.
