Eligible nonprofits, foundations, and libraries can now request donated upgrades of Windows 8 Professional and Enterprise editions through the Microsoft Software Donation Program at TechSoup. With a new, mobile-friendly design that features sleek tiles in the place of conventional icons, Windows 8 features a new take on the traditional Windows environment. Windows 8 also offers some new features that may help your staff's productivity as well as the performance and longevity of your organization's computers.
  • See Windows 8 in action! Watch a video demo to learn about Windows 8's new features and how to navigate around the new interface.
  • What are the differences between Windows 7 and Windows 8? Read our comparison of the two operating systems.
  • Get an overview of Windows 8 hardware and a glimpse into Microsoft's plans for future tablets, laptops, and other devices. 
  • Is Windows 8 right for your organization? We walk you through Windows 8's new features and help you decide if you're ready to upgrade.
