Don’t get me wrong, I will be dabbling with the new Windows 8 but when it comes to making recommendations I tell most of my customers (that are using computers for business) to stick with Windows 7 for now.
If you are lucky enough to have a touch screen computer then by all means go for it. Windows 8 is really designed for touch screens and will be trying to bring a common look and feel regardless of where you use windows be it on a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop.
Pricing is aggressive and the Microsoft Surface along with Windows 8 based smartphones are looking really good and could have a real shot at the corporate sector as it should be backwards compatible with existing windows programs (in most cases).
One big tip for first time users of Windows 8 (Anyone using Windows 8) be warned. This is totally different to anything you may have used before so check your expectations at the door and be prepared to spend a bit of time on a new learning curve.
Windows 8 is expected to be released to the market on the 28th October, 2012.
