February Meeting - Windows8

Ali Suleiman, Product Advisor at the Yorkdale Shopping Centre's Microsoft Retail Store, provided a comprehensive overview of Windows 8. Several audience members brought along their newly acquired Windows8 devices and were able to try out his suggestions, on-the-spot. Members were also reassured that, despite the new Metro (tiled) interface, users could still perform all familiar Windows7 tasks -- even revert to the Windows7 interface.  Using his SurfaceRT tablet, Ali demonstrated some impressive free apps from the 'app store'. The most recent Surface table - the Pro - was unavailable, as the store has been sold out. (alsuleim AT
