Windows 8 Overview


"It's Windows reimagined and reinvented from a solid core of Windows 7 speed and reliability. It's an all-new touch interface. It's a new Windows for new devices.
Windows has been reimagined to focus on your life. The beautiful, fast, and fluid design is perfect for a range of hardware: from compact, touch-enabled tablets and lightweight laptops, to PCs and large, powerful all-in-ones with high-definition screens. It’s smooth, intuitive, and gives you instant access to your people, apps, and stuff, so you spend less time searching and more time doing.
You’ll love browsing through the Windows Store and downloading apps to help you work more efficiently, or installing the latest games so you can compete with friends. Apps can work together, too, so you can share photos, maps, contacts, links, and whatever else you want.
 
No matter what you want to do, you can get it done quickly in Windows 8. Whether you’re completing a project, playing a game, or reading a book, with Windows 8, you can use touch, mouse, and keyboard together—seamlessly—to do what you want, the way you want. No need to choose one or the other. It starts quickly and it’s cloud-connected so you can access your photos, documents, and settings on any Windows 8 PC."
 

Schedule:
 
6.00pm: Informal session - exchange skills, share your latest interesting discoveries, ask for help, do some troubleshooting, etc.
 
7:30pm: Nathan Mercer's demonstration

9.30pm: Supper

  • Would be lovely if I could attend to see the Overview of Windows 8. Have researched about it, but there's nothing quite like actually 'using' it. I happened upon your blog attempting to find any contests for desktop giveaway contests. "Please" let me know if you know of any. We are in terrible need and my job depends on it. Thank you kindly!
