If your new and want to get quickly up to speed.
Having never seen Windows 8 in action, that was an utter mind****
Buckle your seatbelt Dorothy
Most users I deal with have enough trouble remembering where stuff is even when it's clearly in front of them on screen, let alone having to use hidden shortcuts and keyboard combinations, utterly ridiculous. I feel for anybody buying a new computer who isn't at all pc literate as they are going to struggle massively
You don't have to use any keyboard short cuts
Now i've got headache . Windows 7 is the best version of Windows
Don't be a drama queen now I'm just pointing out that I think a great many people (and I am not talking about the likes of anybody using this forum) buying pc's with Windows 8 are going to be stumped. As stated, they have enough difficulty remembering how to open their email when there is a clearly labelled shortcut right in front of them, hide stuff and they're going to get nowhere fast.

Looks like a Fisher Price toy.
not sure what to make of that
but i dont want to **** it off until tyring it, it could turn out to be brilliant
Nice introduction to it. If only it worked on my laptop I'd be using it on there!
Yeah, they said that about Windows XP too and it became a business stalwart.
A lot of businesses have only just upgraded to Windows 7, I can't see them rushing to Windows 8.
Great intro video
Is that video not out of date since it shows the none RTm version that still has desktop ?
when u deal with people who are not computer literate and have just managed to be fluent in windows 7, installing this on any of my companies work machines would be an utter disaster.
Mary the 60 year old temp clerk would have a heart attack trying to using this.
edit: and yes we recently just upgraded to windows 7, we wont be upgrading to 8 for at least 5 years
I'm not saying they will do. My point is that a lot of people said Windows XP was a "Fisher Price" toy OS and look what happened to that version.
Just putting the snark into context.
Windows : P I can go to my porn
Yeh windows 8 is awesome already ......................
I think i'll stick with scroll mouse, click, play
Really think Microsoft have made a big mistake in not explaining about the bottom left corner or getting people to use the start key (unless they've updated the intro video it only refers to the right corners for charms and charms > start is an ugly method).
I keep seeing people not going to the bottom left corner because there's nothing there which in fairness makes complete sense.
