My first encounter with Windows 8 in the Best Buy aisle
I checked out Windows 8 for the first time yesterday on several all in one PC models and found the OS fun and fairly functional. This is really a "touch" OS and I would probably stick to Windows 7 as far as a traditional desktop or laptop is concerned. That said, I'm really looking forward to purchasing my first "non-traditional" PC which will be a touch screen model. Using hand gestures is a pleasant change from the repetitive motion of mousing. I'm also planning to get my first ever smartphone, and that will be Windows 8 as well.
