Windows 8 was released on October 26, 2012 by Microsoft as an attempt to change how people use computers. They achieved this using a new user interface called “Metro”. In Windows 8, users could install programs through their proprietary “app store”. Microsoft also unveiled “Onedrive”; a service that gives the user 15 gigabytes of free online storage. The operating system was not without its flaws, and so consumers pushed for Windows 8.1. The update lowered the system requirements for the operating system so that lower end computers could run it smoothly. Thanks to the update, users can now 3-D print, use wi-fi direct, use miracast technology, and use monitors that support NVme.

Though some may say Burton’s career is ending, I digress, as I believe Mr. Burton still has many cinematic masterpieces to come. The future of Burton’s career shall be judged entirely on the continuum of his movies, from the very first motion picture he produced to the movies he is currently producing.
