I feel so old...

 My husband got us a new desktop computer.  I'm really excited about it because we needed one...especially for homeschooling. 

However, it has windows 8 on it. Everything is pretty different.  Each time I sit down at the computer, I'm re-teaching myself how to access my email, get on the net, whatever.  I seriously feel like an old person getting in touch with new technology.  Yeah, I know there's some way to make the screen look just like it does with old windows, but I'm not giving up!

DH wants windows 8 but i told him to leave it alone-We're all happy with what we have now! I'm not ready to upgrade just yet!

I feel the same way, I've always had windows and now that I have a Mac I'm re teaching myself how to use everything, I even had to google how to copy paste on Mac lol

LOL I was going to say that you aren't old, but you will get used to it. Give it some time.
