 Today we bought a new computer for the business. We had been using my     laptop but dh is getting so busy we had to buy an additonal one. Anyway it is a big adjustment going from a laptop to a desk top. I keep wanting to reach for the touch pad instead of the mouse.

Windows 8 is abig change to from Windows Vista. I really not sure I like it. Maybe I just have to get used to it. Do any of you ladies have Windows 8? Do you like it? How long did it take to get used to it?

We have windows 7 from windows XP  LOL  I went from a desktop to a lap top .   It looks like i had the same adjustment issues you are going through.   I use a stylus though for my touch pad rather than my finger.  I even have a wireless mouse for it.

I bought my new computer weeks before 8 came out, so I have Windows 7, I'm glad too, I don't like 8.

It was an adjustment for me too, I went from a laptop to a desktop. But I loooove my desktop.

 Nice! It will take a little bit to get used to. I was like that also. Kind of weird at first.

We don't have it. I hear it's good though.

My husband has put Windows 8 on almost all of our computers... For some short-sighted reason it's not compatible with net books, so that is my primary computer. But when I have used it, I like it just fine. The navigation is just very different and takes some getting used to... As do most new things. Hopefully it will work for you after you give it some time to adapt.

I've played around with Windows 8 and it's not too bad, just takes some getting used to. I cant wait to get a new touchscreen laptop!
