Windows 8 – Will it be a success?

Windows 8 Logo
As most of you probably know, Windows 8 is currently under development. This article focuses on the new interfaces, the new features, and the new way to use your computer. If you don’t know much about Windows 8, then this is a good place to start. Below I have made various sub-sections of this article dedicated to new features, new UI etc.

Metro Interface

The metro interface was first introduced in Windows Phone 7. Since then, many people have picked up the metro-look to third-party applications and skins. Microsoft is now moving forward with its metro interface. They’re using it in Windows 8 and they’ll use it on Xbox Live soon as well. But, the metro interface is met by skepticism from some people. They find the metro interface too simple and basically too boring. But, luckily, the majority likes the metro interface – as long as everything doesn’t have to be like it.

  • Support for RAW files
  • Easy to use
  • Neat little ImageViewer at the bottom right corner which makes zooming a bit more easy


  • Lazy GUI
  • This free version has been discontinued and will not have any new updates
  • Still has a long way up to the competitors (GIMP, etc.)


It’s easy to use, and with a few clicks you can have your image edited nicely. But there is still a lack of features compared to it’s competitors. Also the GUI looks lazy. I would say for Photographers who just need a picture edited quickly without having to select too much and spend a lot of time on it, this software is a good choice. But for more advanced users, this software simply isn’t enough.
