However, the huge shift in operating system design as well as functionality that had been predicted previously was finally witnessed this year.

The final version of Windows 8 finally hit the market in October, and has been receiving positive reviews so far. Mac as x Mountain Lion also made it to the shelves. Tiles-based touch-centric Modern UI inspired by Windows Phone, Charms bar and snap multi-tasking are considered some of the Significant features of Windows 8. Those of as x Mountain Lion include Finder Share Button, AirPlay Mirroring, Notification center and Messages (yes, the same that’s available in iOS).
