Microsoft is preparing to launch Windows 8 for all devices (Desktop, Laptop and Tablets) very carefully. That's because it promises to unite the all three computer platforms: desktops, laptops and tablets that all them them have the same advantages. To ensure that problems with the touch screens which occurred while using Windows 7 will not be repeated, Microsoft is requiring manufacturers of minimum hardware requirements for monitoring systems that will use Windows 8.
One of the features showed problems in the past were the touch gestures that left edge of the screen to the center. On some devices, this movement was interpreted as a simple touch, which hindered the usage experience. Traditionally, touch screens have a tendency to work best in the center than at the edges. Microsoft is working with manufacturers to resolve this problem, but until that happens, the company announced a new feature that will be in the new operating system. According to product manager Jerry Koh and Jeff Piira, the screens will have a buffer of 20 pixels at the edges of the screen, creating a motion compensation and preventing the system incorrectly interprets the touches, even on older devices.
