Alienware Alpha updates its custom PC interface with HiveMindA new custom Windows 8 overlay called HiveMind makes this unique gaming PC more useful and easier to navigate.
[MUSIC] Eliwood's Alpha is a small console like PC gaming system that originally launched with it's own custom UI over Windows 8. But it was slow, clunky, kind of hard to use. Alienware now has a new version called HiveMind. It's built on top of coding, which is an open source theater platform, very flexible. You can add all sorts of options for video and music services. You can launch directly into games without going into Steam big picture interface first. And the OS' future updates which will let you launch things like god games or games from origin, that's EA gaming service. So it'll work with more than just Steam and you'll almost never have to go to the Windows 8 interface. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is Alienware's HiveMind for the Alienware Alpha's gaming PC. [MUSIC]
