Good primer, 23 Sep 2013
Windows 8 forced onto me with the purchase of a new laptop. O S may be OK for hand held touch screen devices but not appropriate for laptops or desktops, and certainly not intuitive. A reasonable guide is required in order to save time as one struggles through the morass. The book differentiates between the desktop mode (which will accept legacy applications ) and the flashy metro mode. A fairly detailed and useful guide.
