Windows 8 Packaging Revealed

Windows 8 is really changing the Windows image. From the new UI to the new packaging (seen below – image courtesy of The Verge), it is really trying to change the public view and opinion. I’m not sure if it’s to make the Windows OS ‘cool’ for the hipsters that jump on Apple products like they were cake to a fat kid. Whatever the reason, it’s a huge change for Microsoft. Like the new packaging (which usually ends up in the trash bin, anyway)? Hate it?

Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, and Windows RT will all be available on new PCs and tablets from October 26th, and upgrade versions will be available in stores or as an electronic software download. We understand that the packaging will be largely similar to the existing Windows 7 version, but we’ll have to wait until Microsoft officially unveils it to see if the company has put its Windows 8 boxes on a diet — similar to its 37 percent weight lossfrom Vista to Windows 7.
