Windows 8 - the benefits

Permalink 01:34:04 pm by Eugene Gardner, Categories: General

The technorati are generally moving to be positive about Windows 8. My experience is that the ease with which one takes to Win8 decreases in inverse ratio to the age of the person. Many of my clients are more interested in how it can be made to emulate Windows 7 (or XP).

However, if you are open to a new paradigm of working it is probably worth the investment in time needed to learn the new ways; this is especially true if you have a touch sensitive screen or use Windows on your phone or tablet. Rather than repeat the wheel (mixing metaphors appallingly) I shall now list pointers to the best articles of their type I have found.

The following list or discuss new features.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Features_new_to_Windows_8 (more complete)
