Windows 8 So Far

leave a comment »

I haven’t had a chance to use the new touch features of Windows 8, but even so I like it so far.

My main “likes” are the speed improvements.  It boots up way faster, it seems to run every app I use faster and IE10 is way faster.

So, I’m happy with it.

I’ve gotten used to the Start Screen rather than the Start Menu, although I would like to be able to use the old Start Menu from the Desktop.  When I eventually get a touch screen I’ll probably stop complaining about that.

Another sign that Win 8 will succeed is that a co-worker of mine bought an All-In-One Win 8 computer with touch for his computer-illiterate father and his dad immediately started using it and figured it all out with almost no help.

So for us .NET, MS development types, this all bodes well.
