I don’t know about you, but the first time I saw Windows 8 in front of my eyes, I honestly was a little afraid that I wasn’t going to learn how to handle things. We know that many will disagree with the steep change that Windows 8 will bring to the table, but Microsoft took a wise decision with this shift. We might not realize now, but a few years from now, there will be a lot of tablets surrounding us and many of them will have Windows 8 inside. Until then, let’s see how people react now to Windows 8.

    I had the same initial reaction, but it’s not as tough to adjust to. It’s simply 2 ecosystems co-existing on 1 machine. The user can take advantage of full-screen apps and I’ve found a couple of good ones that I like to use exclusively on the Metro interface. For example, the Gulf News app for reading the local news. It’s far better than opening up their website to read the news. The only big flaw I see is the removal of the start button, but there are a plethora of apps out now to replace it. My point here is, even I was skeptical about it at first. But after I gave it a chance, it blew my mind, so much so, that I installed it as my main OS on my main machine, and I’m loving it!

        Haha yup, I’ve realised that – which is why I’ve been following your blog for years!

      Interesting input, MB. I wonder if there will be many consumers that will react like you to Windows 8 :)

        I hope there are. It’s something new, innovative and fresh. It’s in its initial stages but I’m hoping Microsoft will listen to the customer and make it better – they have been doing it so far.
