Windows 8 has a significantly different look and feel
than its predecessor, Windows 7.
The versions of Windows 8 and 8.1 that run on desktop and laptop computers,
generally speaking, will run most software that is compatible with
Windows Vista and
Windows 7 (but not necessarily Windows XP).
Windows 8, like Windows 7, when installed on new
computers, is almost always a 64 Bit edition.
