New Task Manager functionality in Windows 8

Windows 8 is a real hype this week on twitter all over the world. It's a totally different OS then Windows 7 and other Windows releases. The biggest difference is the Metro User Interface which introduces Tiles and new interfaces. One of the many differences (it's almost all new) in Windows 8 is the Task Manager. Not immediately the most striking application, but many times used when looking at performance issues.

Let's have a look at the Task Manager screens now. I show you all screens available in it:

Default Processes information (CPU, Memory, Disk, Network), Nice!

Nice graphic charts to see on the Performance screen.. (CPU, Memory and Disk are default in it with detailed information)

The App History tab shows all applications with total resource usage
(not much information for me here..)

Not much to see on the Startup screen at the moment..

This shows all resources in use per User session, very cool!

Details looks like Processes on the old Task Manager.. quite default

Services at last show all running and stopped.. well services 

As you can see this is a big step forward compared with the old Task Manager. Much more to see here, and nice detailed information!
Windows 8 totally rocks with the Metro User Interface and new look and feel. More blogposts about Windows 8 will follow later..
