I installed Win8 on a friend’s computer and was shocked at what I saw. But I liked what I could see about Win8.
It took me at least a day to understand it. No start button, no longer any programs. They are now called Apps and a mouse cursor has to move to a corner of the screen to show all the apps as icons. Mac users would find this similar to Launchpad.
It looks like the operating system (OS) was designed for future use in phones and tablets. If it is free of bugs, unlike all past products, it will definitely give the Mac OS competition. Recently I read the small MacAir rated the best to buy, the larger MacAir the best video for its Retina display and the Mac Pro the best powerhouse computer if you need the extras and can afford it.
