I read alot about Windows 8 that it will have many advantages over Windows 7. Currently Windows 7 like Vista cant run on legacy PCs that did not meet system requirement of 1GHz CPU and DirectX 9.0c GPU to run Aero Glass. With Internet browsers on Internet Explorer 9, Chrome 9 and Firefox 4 were done on hardware acceleration GPUs, Microsoft redesign and improve Windows Display Manager and Aero to be done everything on CPUs instead of GPUs so that Windows 8 will able to run on legacy PCs with the same system requirement as Windows XP. Here are millions of old PCs with old Intel IGPs running Windows XP which cant run Aero Glass on Windows Vista and 7 will finally able to do it on Windows 8.
