Subject: RE: Tech: Windows 8 - reviews of general release
I'll admit there's a bit of a learning curve with Windows 8. For me, it took about 15 minutes, and then I had to teach a couple of staff members how to use it. So when I put it on my own computer, it worked like a charm.
I'm not sure I'll use the "Start" page all that much. The desktop is almost identical to my Windows 7 desktop. The installation process left all the icons and the taskbar icons exactly where they were in Windows 7. I was used to running most programs from the taskbar, so most things operate exactly like they used to.
To access applications that you don't use a lot, right-click a blank spot on the "start" page.
