Subject: RE: why did I think windows 8 would work
Well, the "Start" page is cute, but it's not really intuitive unless you have a touch screen. Without a touch screen, that page is just "window" dressing, if you'll excuse the pun.

But if you click the Windows button and "D" (for desktop), you'll get to a desktop that's just like you had in Win 7, Win Vista, and Win XP.

I was going to say that I don't like Windows Vista - it's sluggish, and seems to have a lot of problems with updates. Win 7 was a great improvement. I'm glad I only bought two Windows Vista computers, as opposed to six or seven with Windows 7 - and I had a truckload of Win XP computers, but most of them were donated. We're still getting XP donations, but I'm getting reluctant to take them (I rehab most of them and give them to our guests at the Women's Center - and keep some for parts and office use).
