Android KitKat 4.4

Android 4.4 (KitKat) is an operating system that, like its predecessors, can work on devices with a minimum of 512 MB of RAM.

Windows 8 RT tablet edition

We’ve already got acquainted with all the novelties of Windows 8 in a recent article, but also the rejuvenated elements that Eight has inherited from previous versions of this OS. Many features are entirely new and bring along a significantly changed concept of use, most prominently the Metro (i.e. Modern UI) interface, optimised for tablets and other hybrid forms of portable computers that rely on the touchscreen. However, this is but the tip of the iceberg; the new Windows has loads of new features and optimisations under the hood, some of which are responsible for the noticeably better performance, and some which bring new functionality to the good old desktop environment.

Windows 8

When a company such as Microsoft prepares a new product, especially a new generation of the most popular operating system on Earth, it’s hard to remain indifferent and not fall under the influence of the huge pomp and dust risen about it in the media, which hasn’t given way in over a year now. Historically, this company is hugely responsible for many, many things that have come to define the desktop PC, in both business and private settings, from fundamental things such as the way we communicate with the PC, to many other software and hardware standards that we’ve got used to and accepted almost unconditionally. It’s been over twenty years since the first Windows was launched, with every subsequent version being a bold step ahead, bringing forth a load of new features.

Android and graphics

tumb

One of the many novelties and improvements of the overall user experience brought forth by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is the increased use of GPU acceleration in rendering the basic UI elements of the system. We deliberately say “increased” because previous Android versions also used the graphics subsystem to render certain parts of the UI, contrary to popular belief, but to a much lesser extent than is currently the case.

Windows XP SP3 vs. SP2

ImageMicrosoft came out with latest service pack for XP, four years after SP2 was released. XP itself is very stabile system with SP2 installed, so SP3 is considered as not so innovative like it was SP2. The essence of this service pack is to bring all patches for XP that are released until now. Beside patches attended for safety of your OS, SP3 also contains few new additions that should provide better network collaboration, easier administration etc.

Battle Between Operating Systems

ImageWhen you look at operating systems market it’s quite obvious who dominates in this area. In all sorts of “windows” variants, Microsoft definitely leads.  At the moment Microsoft is present on the market with two generations of OS, Vista and XP (XP can be categorize at this moment as “old school”). Both OSs are present in two basic variants: 32-bit and 64-bit. Vista also has several variants that don’t have differences in performances, the only differences are additional options that can satisfy users’ needs.

Windows Vista Service Pack 1

ImageA little more than a year ago, Windows Vista was finally brought to daylight in its final, official form. As XP was getting obsolete already (it had spent 5 years on the market as the dominating OS), a quick transition to the new operating system was expected. Yet besides the strong marketing campaign and hype, it simply never happened like that.
