With Windows 8, Microsoft completely reimagined the graphical user interface for its operating system, and designed it to run on tablets as well as PCs. It’s a big change that calls for a trustworthy guide—Windows 8: The Missing Manual. This book provides technical insight, lots of wit, and hardnosed objectivity to help you hit the ground running with Microsoft’s new OS.
