December is here and we are looking to close 2013 with a strong pace. I am currently in Puerto Rico, but the renewed energy of these vacations only made me think about important things in life, like family, personal goals for 2014 and how big changes are on our way. With that in mind I have a few links related with Windows 8, one of the greatest changes in pace in Microsoft. So, please enjoy.
