Since purchasing our new HP desktop PC, I’ve been playing around with Windows 8 quite a bit. I gotta say, I’m a fan. I DON”T miss the Start button one bit, even the wife was fine with it’s disappearance It’s been a while since I was enamored with a Microsoft product. The truth is, since my first 3.1 machine in ’92, I’ve never really liked what Microsoft has had to offer. I still own a Gateway with XP, that is now 12 years old, which I’m using as a server for my X10. This new PC replaces our HP Pavilion with Vista. My parents even had the dreaded ME at one time, what a pile of junk that turned out to be!
