50 questions and answers about Windows 8

Windows 8: 50 Questions and Answers You Need to Make a DecisionLast week I told you why I think Windows 8 is the worst operating system ever. In the blog, I even publicly asked Steve Ballmer to recall Windows 8. Although a lot of you agreed with me, there were those who said I didn’t give it a fair assessment.

I want to be fair about this and give Microsoft the benefit of the doubt. I also want you to make up your own mind and not rely solely on one man’s opinion and rant.

Rather than write another long-winded blog post about all the features and attributes of the new OS, I will point to another source that does it all for me. It’s an e-book titled Windows 8: 50 Questions and Answers You Need to Make a Decision.

As you already know, Windows 8 introduced significant changes to the look and feel of Microsoft’s flagship product, presumably with the intention of supporting mobile devices/tablets and enhancing the overall user experience. Some of these changes, including a touchscreen capable interface, improved security features, and online services (including a Windows store) were considered somewhat radical, especially for an OS previously considered exclusively tied to the desktop.

These changes raised a lot of questions, and the Windows 8 e-book addresses fifty of them. This 105 page guide answers the basic questions about this new OS, such as: What is Windows 8? How is it different from Windows 7, XP and Linux? Can I dual boot my current OS with it? It also answers a few questions I had myself, such as: Why did Microsoft release tablets running on two operating systems? Should I upgrade from Windows 7? What if Windows 8 fails? This last question is a real doozy and it’s a great discussion no matter which side of the Windows 8 fence you sit on.

The e-book defines the features of Windows 8 in layman terms and provides enough information on the differences between other solutions and its previous versions to make an informed decision. If you’re considering an upgrade to Windows 8, this guide is capable of helping you answer your questions.

Windows 8: 50 Questions and Answers You Need to Make a Decision normally sells for $9.95. However, you can get it from The Force Field for FREE until midnight Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013.

Repeat: This is a limited time offer. I have the e-book and, yes, it does shamelessly promote the operating system, but it wasn’t written or published by Microsoft. It was created by a third party. The e-book was written by editor Onuora Amobi and published by Nnigma, Inc.

To be fair (and, for full disclaimer, possibly make a little something on the side), I am promoting the book. In fact, I think it’s a good idea, since it may help some of you who are on the fence about it to decide for yourselves as to whether or not Windows 8 is worth the time and effort of selling it to your customers or using it yourself.

It’s only fair.
