Re: [svmug] PSA: Windows 8 Pro for Cheap Ends Today
- Hi Chris,
People should save their money, and send a message to Microsoft that
you do not like some one shoving a new OS down your throat that has a
UI designed for a tablet with a touch screen. Believe I respect Steve
Balmer, he is brillant business man, and a Harvard graduate, but I
feel he has lost touch with his IT support base, and is listening to
the wrong people in the IT field. Reminds me of the fable, " The king
who has no clothes".
There is a script that you can run that will allow you to have the
Windows 7 look and feel every time you login, but I am sure Microsoft
will have a built in option with the release of service pack one.
The other option is to take a computer course at a community college,
who is a member of the MSDN academic alliance ( Foothill, DeAnza,
Diablo Valley Colege, Etc). You'll get windows 8 for free for personal
use as a student, and it does not expire.
Have a nice day!
