This is an awesome resource! Thank you for the free download. I noticed one typographic error: On page 12, in Chapter 2 under the subheading, "Like Windows 7 - Only better", the 4th paragraph begins with the sentence, "To provide a no-comprise tablet experience, the Windows 8 user interface..." This should likely be 'no-compromise'. Just FYI.
Just when you think you know it all they add another OS!!
Thanks for the knowledge update.
I like the new Win8 user interface, and you can easily switch back to the old familiar Windows 7, just by clicking desktop tile or by pressing the windows key.
Great introduction to this new OS.
a nice addtion to MS OS list sofar...
Obrigado pelo livro!!!
Cool, like this ebook!
Thanks for making this excellent text available free of charge. I have started programming for W8 and I like the new desktop app programming model, but I only knew just enough about W8 to get by. This book is helping me fill in the gaps and exposing me to lots of W8 goodies. Nice holiday present :)
