Microsoft is expected to release public beta version of Windows 8 in January 2012. Unfortunately, before the release some of it features have already been leaked out in market. Few undocumented features of Windows 8 have been cropped up on the internet, claiming to be a sneak shots.

However, many people are considering such sneak peak as a deliberate attempt triggered by Microsoft itself. Company is expected to release the beta version for public in January 2012 and such leak out might be a marketing policy to ensure the maximum hype towards Windows 8. Leaked information has revealed that the storage space in Windows 8 will be linked up with Microsoft’s new Resilient File System (ReFS). It will help users in creating a new level of redundancy in Windows 8.


Windows current version or Windows 7 is still on its peak and has resulted as the most favorite OS for the users. Near about 450 million  licenses of Windows 7 version have been sold in market and is expected to continue its dream-run in future. On the other hand, market share of Windows 7 is quite low compare to Windows XP. This clearly indicates that Windows 7 has got  along way to go and there is absolutely no immediate market need or demand towards a new Windows operating system. Therefore, why Microsoft is launching Windows 8 is a big question for everyone? Personally, I feel that Microsoft should hold its Windows 8 launch till the end of 2012 to provide a good transition time line for the users who recently invested in XP to 7 upgrade.

The new storage feature of Windows 8 has few advanced features which is not available in Windows 7. In Windows 8 when some data write over the pool drives in a particular manner, system automatically corrects the data to avoid any data loss. Although, this feature is quite similar to software RAID but it can utilize Microsoft’s ReFS for increased redundancy.

One of the best things which I noticed in Windows 8 version is its memory support in petabyte data set sizes with Storage spaces and ReFS.

Loaded with all these advanced features Windows 8 will definitely charm in the market of OS. But, the big question here is – Whether we really need this now ?
