The major new upgrade from Microsoft, Windows 8, will be available for your computer or tablet starting Friday, October 26, 2012. While I am usually first in line to upgrade to the latest and greatest, I may hold off a little while on this one. But again, I might not.
Windows 8 is so completely different than what we are used to - it does not even have a Start button anymore. And since it is optimized for computers and tablets with touch screens, many early testers recommend to stick with Windows 7 if you do not have a touch screen or tablet.
Legacy Family Tree works well on Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro. It does not (now) run on tablets running Windows RT. For a comparison of the three versions of Windows, click here. Or take a tour of Windows 8 here.
Having said all this, you will probably find me at the computer store early Friday morning. What about you? Are you taking the plunge, or will you wait for a while?
