Subject: RE: Tech: Windows 8 - reviews of general release
I bought a Windows 8 computer today for the women's center where I do volunteer work. It took me about ten minutes to figure out how to operate Win 8 - first time I've had a "learning curve" since I got Windows 3.15. It runs quite well once you figure it out, though. I didn't feel the new GUI slowed me down at all. I can still use most of my favorite keyboard shortcuts.
Programs and documents opened very quickly, and bootup was quick.
