Everything about Windows 8

What is Windows 8?

Windows 8 is an operating system created and sold by Microsoft. Released in October 2012, it is available in several different editions. It introduced significant changes to the user interface compared to the previous version, Windows 7.

 

Windows 8 end of life: Windows 10 Migration

Microsoft has scheduled Windows 8 end of life for January 2023. After this date, support (including paid support) and updates will be discontinued. Microsoft offers two support phases for its Windows operating system: mainstream support and extended support. During mainstream support, applications, features and security updates will be provided by Microsoft for free. Extended support is the second and final support phase.

Microsoft will release security updates for operating systems that are in the phase but will no longer release feature updates or other improvements. Businesses are advised to start thinking about migrating to Windows 10 before January 2023 to avoid leaving their systems open to security breaches. Following this date, organizations may be able to pay for extended support temporarily.

Pro and Enterprise are typically editions used by businesses and organizations. The Windows 8 Pro edition is for small to medium sized businesses. It is similar in scope to Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate. The Enterprise edition is for large organizations who are purchasing licenses in bulk.
 

Windows 8 Business license

To install and use the Windows 8 Enterprise edition, an organization must purchase a Windows 8 Pro license and assign Software Assurance (SA) to it. Once the Enterprise edition has been deployed, an organization has the permission to use the software.
 

Windows 8 OneDrive for Business

Users can use the OneDrive for Business app in Windows 8 to store, access, and share work documents and other files in the cloud.
 

Windows 8 Small Businesses

Windows 8 provides a number of features that are useful for small businesses and to help businesses owners manage their IT systems, without the need for a full-time IT manager. Group Policy allows the IT manager to ensure that all of the company’s devices are up to date. That removes the challenge of monitoring employee remote devices and increases uptime.
