Some of the topics covered in his extensive review:
- Bimodal Interface – How the desktop lives alongside the Modern UI
- Finding and using the charms bar
- Using Windows 8 Modern Apps

This post is worth a read as it covers many of the issues that new users will run into when switching from a Windows 7 laptop to a Windows 8 machine. Paul offers convenient tips from his experience, easily highlighted for you in green!
Finally, Paul has spent nearly 30 years away from Microsoft now but this is what he had to say about Windows 8 on Tablets:
I’m particularly excited about the prospects for Windows 8 on a tablet. The tablet interface is elegant, responsive, and stacks up nicely with other tablets on the market. And with its capability to optionally switch to desktop view right on the tablet, Windows 8 extends to mobile users the flexibility to run traditional applications and become more efficient and productive while on the go.
