I bit the bullet last night and started the upgrade from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 8 Pro. I’ve got customers asking me about it, so I thought that it was time to start learning a bit more. I have been using it on my Microsoft Surface RT tablet and it is a perfect fit for the keyboard/touch screen environment. It is amazingly intuitive and provides a level of interaction and capability for business use that surpasses other tablets. You can see my initial hands-on review here. Will it work in a traditional desktop environment though? I have my doubts. Read on to find out more.
Welcome to the Firefly review of the new Microsoft Surface RT tablet. We’ve had them for 24 hours so far and are still discovering things about them, however I thought that this would be a good time to let you know how things are going. We are looking at them as useful business and productivity tools, rather than as simply browsing or gaming devices. The good news is that the Surface has exceeded our expectations in almost every way, sure there are some bugs and things that need improving, but it is an amazing product made even more so when you consider that it is a new operating system on new hardware. Oh, we also own and use iPads on a regular basis and we paid for all of them out of our own money, so we have no particular axe to grind in this write-up. Read on to find out how we are getting on.
