Want to know more about each of these? Keep reading.
Windows 8 is Microsoft’s newest operating system. There are some differences from Windows 7 that are definitely worth checking out. First, as long as you have high-speed Internet, you can access your personal Microsoft account from anywhere—complete with your own settings. In addition, you don’t have to worry about anything used on Windows 7 not being compatible with Windows 8—Microsoft made sure everything would smoothly integrate. Last but not least, Windows 8 is touch-screen friendly with thoughtfully laid out icons.
Windows Server 2012 helps clients create their own IT system. Server 2012 brings Microsoft’s extensive experience with cloud computing to their customers who use the program. As with Windows 8, users can access their work desktop from anywhere, with any device. This allows employees to be able to work remotely and stay productive. In addition, with Server 2012, you can store more than ever on your server through thin-provisioning and trimming VM storage.
