Windows 8 tiles


  • I attended the infamous "start me" up Microsoft Launch in Vancouver in 1995.  17 years of teaching and using Windows with the start button at the bottom left, and a preference for an unclutter desktop does not encourage me to upgrade. I like change and tech toys, bu the change must have good reason.  Win 95, XP and Win 7 worked or works.  I too have a desktop without a touch screen and will keep Win 7 as long as possible. 

    Microsoft will continue to support the various versions; they must as too many organizations have proprietary systems designed for a specific Win operating system version. For example Vancouver General Hospital uses XP as that is what their entire patient information system was built on.
