Currently, the latest version of Microsoft Windows operating system is Windows 7. Some people had trouble using this version when it was first introduced. There were a few reasons for such a problem.
One of them is the lack of proper training. The current version, Windows 7 does have many help functions for a new user. Microsoft also set up various online tutorials and videos to help users. Nevertheless, many users still face some problems due to the some of encryptions, which were used in the operating system.
Windows 8 is expected to be officially launched during the middle of 2012. Nevertheless, beta testing will be carried out during the middle and end of next year. Right now, there is no official Windows 8 training yet as set up by Microsoft Corporation. The CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer is expected to give some insight into this future version of operating system next month in 2011.
The initial or planning stage of Windows 8 beta testing is expected to be released somewhere during the middle of next year. If you check out the worldwide web then, you may come across many materials for Windows 8 training online. The development phase, which focuses mainly on corrections and adjustments, is expected to be released to the public during the end of next year. It is best to try your hand during both the stages.
You can be prepared to some extent when it comes to using the actual version of Windows 8. This version also incorporates Internet Explorer 9 and Windows Live Wave 5 into its operating system. Both Internet Explorer 9 and Windows Live Wave 5 are not on the market yet. They would be released together with Windows 8.
By learning in advance as much you can, you would not have much difficulty when the time comes to download and use all these versions. Another great benefit of Windows 8 training is feedback. After using any of the online videos and tutorials for training purposes, you can give some valuable feedback to Microsoft. During the development stage, feedback would be important to Microsoft for adjusting any flaws or failures.
In short, there are a few benefits of Windows 8 training online for computer users. You can make good use of tutorials, videos and other materials to give valuable feedback to Microsoft for improving Windows 8 before its estimated official launch in 2012. Since this operating system also includes other latest versions of software, it is best to learn as much as possible in advance rather than waiting for the last minute.
