Paul Thurrott wrote a pretty impressive piece on his Supersite giving a very compelling theory about why Windows 8 has sold poorly over the previous holiday season. In a beautifully written piece called “Explaining Windows 8 PC Sales Over the Holidays” he lays out this central theory – because of the Netbook and...

This is a guest post by John Campbell Following the launch of Windows 8 I downloaded and installed Windows 8 on my computers. Both installations ran smoothly until I found I had two conflicting problems. The first involved accessing my Hotmail Account and the second involved printing documents from both my HP printers...

I don’t do this often. I have to send you to Neowin to read this very good and detailed Windows 8 overview article by Brad Sams. He does a great job at breaking down the Operating System and I think it’s a must read. You can read his piece “Review: Windows 8, the hybrid OS has arrived” here.

Everyone should read the article by Paul Thurrott called “Windows to Windows 8“. It’s a pretty spot on analysis of what Windows 8 is and how we (and Microsoft) collectively got to this point. There’s a quote that’s really cool and noteworthy. The new OS we should be talking about here is Windows RT, not Windows 8. Although...

Robert Johnson wrote a really good and level headed article about Windows 8 at Betanews. What I liked about this article is the fact that it seemed a lot more balanced than most of the Windows 8 reviews out there.

It is refreshingly slick-looking and modern, albeit...

So I have the Windows 8 Release Preview installed on both my Tablet and Laptop. It’s been …. interesting. I have a lot to say about it but I’m too tired this week so starting Monday, I’ll be writing a daily story about my experience with the product. I will say that it’s not as different from the CP as I hoped it would be...

Just yesterday I mentioned that Microsoft is on the verge of evolution thanks to Windows 8, and in the process I asked whether or not a fork in Windows is needed in the near future. For the most part, the comments I’ve received say that others feel that creating a division between the casual and professional side of...

Great hands on review from Tom Warren at the Verge. I’ll have a more detailed review coming soon. Check it out here. Videos from the verge below…

When it comes to Microsoft’s decision to focus Windows 8 on both the desktop and tablet market you often hear many mixed opinions.
