Windows 8 System Builder is for pre-installation on a new personal computer or installation on a computer that is not currently running Windows 7, Vista, or XP.  This product is not an upgrade and does not provide solutions to help you keep personal settings or files as the product is installed.  Windows 8 System Builder DVD 64-Bit can be installed on personal computers with a 64 bit capable processor.

The new Windows 8 start screen is your personalized home for items you use the most and can be customized according to your user preferences. Windows 8 Live tiles provide real-time updates from your Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail accounts. Along with the new Start screen, the lock screen now includes e-mail, calendar, and clock widgets.

To access your PC, Microsoft has replaced a standard PIN or password with a swipe gesture; unlock your PC by clicking or swiping preset locations you’ve selected on the lock screen. New functions also allow you to search for your favorite software programs, open, close, hide, resize, or run multiple apps simultaneously with the swipe of a finger or a swipe of the mouse.

Windows has also made changes to make your PC more secure by boosting its existing security features and adding “SmartScreen,” which acts to prevent suspicious programs or apps from being installed or running on your machine. Finally, Windows 8 also gives you the ability to “refresh” itself to give users a new starting point and a cleaner version of Windows.

    New Tech and New Look, for Hardware New and Old The “System Builder” discs of Windows 8 are named this way because they are a full install and not an upgrade. The assumption is that you are building your own machine and looking to put Windows 8 on a from-scratch install, but this is still a multi-boot friendly OS and if your intention instead is to install a full copy of Windows 8 without upgrading your current system, well, that works too: you can put this on old hardware so long as your machine meets the system requirements. There has been some confusion at the lack of an ‘OEM’ SKU for Windows, so I suspect that until we hear otherwise, this is our ‘OEM’ substitute for those of us who like to tinker with hardware.If you’re considering Windows 8, there are benefits many small and large. The patchwork way in which the OS seems to meld old into new can be confusing, and it’s clear the UI pays lip service to mice while eagerly awaiting your first touch-screen or touch-pad purchase. But to give credit where credit is…

    Windows 8 opinion I am a business owner conducting everyday business applications on my laptop.In my opinion… Microsoft 8 is hands down the worst OS they have ever come outwith. I strongly advise you to not buy it. Stick with 7 unless all you do isfacebook, skype, or play games. It’s terrible otherwise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The worst operating system that I’ve ever attempted to use If -5 stars were an option I would give it -5 stars. This is the worst operating system that I have ever used. Without the 3rd party program “classic shell” running on to of it it would be completely unusable. Believe me, I tried for a few hours before downloading “classic shell”. Classic shell made it almost use-able, but I continuosly run into road blocks.
