Windows 8 Release

By Michelle Glennie, The Partner Marketing Group

It’s been a few weeks since Windows 8 was released to the general public. Since then, there has been no shortage of people who have voiced their opinions of Microsoft’s latest operating system. If you do some simple searching on the internet you can find articles that tell you why you should skip Windows 8 for any number of reasons, but on the flip side of the coin, you can find examples of why you should switch immediately as it has the best new features.

What is Your Feedback?

This mixed bag of feedback leaves you sitting there going ‘who do I listen to’? I find the best approach is to try an evaluation copy so that you can make your own judgments. By all means, if you have your favorite tech resources be it a blog or website that you trust, take the time to listen to a few reviews. Until you have some hands-on experience, you don’t know for sure whether or not to make the switch now or to wait.


So to help you with your evaluation of whether or not you should consider windows 8, it would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with some of the new features. Windows 8 Jump Start, is a series of free, online training videos that are targeted to professionals. The series is broken into 6 modules that give insight about various features so that you know what to try.  This approach lets you decide what is most important to YOU.
