On June 1st, Microsoft made available for download the final pre-release version of its Windows 8 platform, namely Windows 8 Release Preview.

Those users who haven’t had the possibility to take a look at the operating system by downloading and installing it can learn more on what it has to offer through the user guide that Microsoft published.

It might not be the real deal, but it will certainly open your eyes to some of the main enhancements that the platform arrives with.

Windows 8 Release Preview reflects Microsoft’s new approach to its PC platform, which is now redesigned to focus more on user’s life.

“The beautiful, fast, and fluid design is perfect for a range of hardware: from compact, touch-enabled tablets and lightweight laptops, to PCs and large, powerful all-in-ones with high-definition screens,” Microsoft notes.

“It’s smooth, intuitive, and gives you instant access to your people, apps, and stuff, so you spend less time searching and more time doing.”

Windows 8 Release Preview arrives with the new Metro UI interface dominating the entire user experience with the new platform from the Redmond company, and features a great deal of optimizations to be used on touchscreen devices.

Windows 8 is meant to work great on such PCs, and manufacturers already started to showcase products that take full advantage of this feature.

For traditional desktop users, things might not be as great when it comes to navigating with the keyboard and mouse, but the platform still has a lot to offer to them too, Microsoft says.

Windows 8 Release Preview comes with a new browsing experience, courtesy of its Metro style Internet Explorer 10 browser, as well as with a set of other apps designed to fit the new interface in Windows 8, such as Bing News, Sports and Travel, among others.

“No matter what you want to do, you can get it done quickly in Windows 8. Whether you’re completing a project, playing a game, or reading a book, with Windows 8, you can use touch, mouse, and keyboard together—seamlessly—to do what you want, the way you want,” Microsoft notes.

Those who have already got a taste of Windows 8 Release Preview might find guide useful as well, since it would take them through some of the main features and capabilities of the platform.
