Windows 8-ALMOST Love At First Sight

A few days ago, I launched my Twitter app on my phone, and the first thing I saw was a post by @EverythingMS mentioning Windows 8, and my heart skipped a beat. Just hearing the name caused a true burst of excitement in me as I recalled a few articles I read a year ago stating that this would be a “Major” release, while Vista and 7 were only “Minor” releases. I clicked the link, then immediately minimized the page to make sure I hadn’t misread the post. After seeing the picture on the article, I expected to go back and read about Windows Phone 8, but I didn’t. It was Windows 8, however, it looked strikingly similar to my Windows Phone. Since the release of the iPad, everyone has been questiong Microsoft about tablets, and how they would respond to Apple’s device. After a couple years, we have our answer. They’ve completely redesigned Windows for tablets. And it’s not just a tablet version of the operating system. This is the OS that will run on desktops, laptops, and tablets.

I was disappointed at first, then my tablet fever came back. I first got it first when the iPad was released, and now I have it again worse than ever. I can get a tablet that is compatible with millions of programs AND can be productive with Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, and all the other programs keeping the iPad from completely replacing computers. It has better multitasking than can be designed for a mobile operating system, because it’s not a mobile operating system. It is fully featured.
