It's the old story, "Different strokes for different folks". Some people will think I am nuts and I don't mind that but I enjoy seeing how different packages work. I have worked my way through many different ones over the years and I'll admit that many are now sitting on the shelf gathering dust. However, over that time I have gained a feel for software in general that allows me to use most packages without using a manual. Win 8 has been the same way. I started using it back in April on an old laptop. My first suprise was that it would run on it as Win 7 wouldn't. Yes there are many things I still don't know all about it but you know what, I won't probably ever use a lot of it's bells and whistles.
