Windows 8 Build 7955 Offers Native Support For 3D Monitors!

Microsoft has apparently included native support for 3D Monitors in Windows 8 from Build 7955 onwards according to an Italian technology website which managed to get its hands on the OS.

Windows8Italia (opens in new tab) found references, in the OS, to 3D transitions similar to the "tilt" feature found on Windows Phone 7, and while 3D monitors are still a rarity, Microsoft has given its backing to them by including support for the new breed of peripheral.

The lads also found out that the new beta of Windows 8 includes other references to a Windows Store which allows licenses to be synchronised across computers and devices.

The client is apparently written in HTML which will allow it to be accessible via a browser although, at the moment, it is only accessible to those accedited by Microsoft.

Other added features include support for hyphenation dictionaries, a SmartScreen feature for Windows explorer, the ability to synchronise passwords and credentials across computers, support for Wi-Fi direct, the ability to suspend and resume processes in task manager, and native support for mobile networks.

Windows 8 is expected to go in Beta by the end of the year and to go gold in the first half of 2012 with an expected launch later that year.
