Microsoft has not just released Windows 8 for computer operating system but it will be launching Windows Phone 8 with its latest operating system. It seems the new OS will take place in the mobile market like Android and iOS.
There are many mobile application developers connected with Android and iPhone, so now they will diversify by creating an application for Windows Phone 8. The major problem is about Windows updates. Developers have to concentrate on Windows features and build an effective application that can be supported in all versions of Windows operating system. It will be great for Windows application developers since they just need to create one application of computer and mobile Windows application.

Advantages and effects

We can say that Microsoft launched Windows, the major OS, and now it will just provide yearly versions for its users. There are many software companies providing these types of updates and they are not charging anything. So Windows users will surely get benefit of low cost or free version for  Windows.

The yearly updates of Microsoft will increase new features in an operating system with all existing features in the old version. This will make users to work on older features and also with some advance options. If Windows will go for just updating online then it will be hugely successful because many computer users are not using paid version of Windows 7 or Windows XP because they can use the same key for many computers. Microsoft can here go through strike option and just allow upgrading online. However, operating system covers boot too so it may be not possible to make the perfect software configuration.
