Subject: RE: Tech: Windows 8 - reviews of general release
Gee, Voyager, I didn't know about Olivia Wilde and Windows 7. Maybe I'll keep my Win 7 and forego the $15 upgrade to Win 8.

My boss the nun was complaining yesterday about the Win 8 computer I bought for another employee. The employee likes it just fine, but The Boss wants immediate gratification. I haven't found Solitaire on the Win 8 computer yet. If I can make it easier for The Boss to find, that will make her much happier. It appeas that there is a very nice selection of Win 8 games.

Win 8 has one unexpected advantage - our college interns tend to take over all the computers in the office, and the employees and The Boss are too nice to push them aside when they need their computers. The interns don't know Windows 8 and haven't crossed the 15-minute learning curve, so they leave the Win 8 computer alone (which is why The Boss wants to use it).

So, all I have to do is teach The Boss to use Win 8, and all will be well.
