Windows EIGHT

A few post back, I had asked some of my readers their opinion on what would be best to purchase for my personal computer. Either a tablet or a net book. Most recommend a tablet or Ipad but the more I thought about it, the more I wanted a normal key board. I do alot of typing.

I had a net book and loved it until I dropped it, so I went with a net book again since I mainly want to use it to take on vacations so I can load photos, look at emails, search the Internet, and blog. ok, well thats all I do anyways on my laptop and desktop but I like having a keyboard for all that jazz.

Anyway, little did I know I would have another choice. Windows 7 or Windows 8?
I went the little more expensive route and choose the Windows 8. I was aware it would be different and confusing since all the feed back it gets is negative. I figured this is what everything is coming to and I like a challenge anyway, so... Here I am....on my desk top. Ha ha.

I turned on the little net book last night and played around with it for about an hour and WHOA, It was really different! Colorful though, don't ya think?


The desktop looks nothing like I've seen the past 20 years. It works alot like Ipads and tablet. You load apps from the Windows store and they appear here. There is not a start screen.
This is mostly made for touch screen computers which my new little net book does not have touch screen therefore making it a little more challenging. I can get through this! If I cant, there is actually an app that takes me to a desktop that looks familiar but I'm gonna try and use the app version first.

There are alot of videos and sites that explain how to use Windows 8 and Ive been exploring. Here are a couple. Check them out.
I think I will like it once I get used to it. It takes me to a whole new world of computers other than what I'm used to. I will take if for a spin this weekend. First I have to find a blogger app. Wish me luck.

  1. Ooo, I want a new computer in my near future, and I'm so scared I'm not going to know a thing when I move away from this old trusty thing I've had for the past 8 years...It does look challenging, but it does look pretty colorful and fun, too. :) Hope you get things moving along easily on it!

  2. I have windows 8 on my netbook and I find I don't actually use the Windows 8 bit. I really only use the desktop bit and still do my emails etc on here rather than on the apps. It looks nice though I agree!!
