Improved security has been adapted with each offering from Microsoft, even though Visa had initial problems. Windows XP became relatively secure with the Service Pack 2 and Windows 7 has been Microsoft’s most successful yet. So this ever progressing security should continue on in the next version.

Faster boot up times, an issue raised by customers has been noted by Microsoft to come up with rapid response time to setup.

Advanced RISC Machine also known as (ARM) will have products that will be available for those who use Windows, which could also benefit Microsoft Windows and their customers.

Compatibilities with Windows 8 for tablets could be something the software giants may feel the need to make an improvement with. There maybe an application store with Microsoft Windows 8 in the pipeline as well.

A History Vault could be an added extra that gives you a backup interface for using the Apple Mac OS X to edit previous files, restore individual files and more. Power efficiency is something Windows 7 users are after, and saving power for mobile versions would be a welcome addition.

After the issues concerning Windows Visa, Windows 7 has undone the damage caused, and with these lessons learnt, can this make Microsoft’s new Windows 8 a step forward in Windows operating systems?
