Last week I decided to upgrade my systems to Windows 8.1.
I've been using Windows 8 for months and I'm not ashamed to admit that I like it. One of the features I've found particularly useful is the ability to share settings between different PCs once you have linked your Microsoft account (formerly known as a Windows Live ID) to your PC login.
If you look at the headlines then it would seem that there's almost complete opposition to the changes that have been introduced with Microsofts new Operating System, Windows 8. I'm talking, of course, about the new touch focused Metro interface.
In a previous post I enthused about the new Metro interface introduced with Windows 8 and its utility on a touch enabled tablet. This time I'll cover how the old Windows desktop fits into this new interface, which is what is causing nearly all of the controversy along with how Metro works with a mouse and keyboard.
