Windows 8 Upgrade?


I bought the Windows 8 Pro. The “manual” that came with it is a card about 5″ x 5″ with the installation instructions on one side and “Welcome” on the other. Sheesh! That’s a good start!

It’s a great OS for a phone or a tablet but i am still not convinced it is the way to go for PCs. Windows 8 resembles the Windows Phone 7’s software, using tiles that let users swipe through rather than click to navigate. I like the idea of the apps all on the home screen but the tiles are quite boring and large. Half of them I wont even use.  I reckon that in a year or so when the apps store really gets stocked up users will have screens full of apps.

As most of my work is done in word, paint shop pro, coral video etc etc and not just browsing I find myself switching back to the desktop. It’s easier for me to navigate. Oh and by the way windows 8 has no start menu…can you believe it? Even if you revert to desktop screen you will still have to go into your computer settings to search for what you want.

Things to remember when upgrading:

  • Check your computers compatibility
  • You might have to install new driver which you may have to pay for
  • Some of your programmes might not be compatible
  • Many basic programs are missing, including Notepad

I haven’t made my mind up about Windows 8. I found it easy to use once i figured out where everything was but once I got fed up of playing around I thought if I had had to pay the full price for this softwear upgrade I probably would have thought it wasn’t worth it. I have a new desktop so I got the upgrade for £14.99 therefore I am not complaining.

I will keep it on my system until I learn everything I can and then go back to win 7 or wait for the next win 9

If you are a windows 7 user there aren’t that many reasons to upgrade.

Windows 7 speech recognition


Inspired by a young lady  http://slowly-by-slowly.com/2012/11/18/searching-for-the-red-thread-on-structuring-a-turkish-american-marital-memoir-part-1/   I am testing Windows 7 voice recognition which will help me with writing my blogs and perhaps my memoirs at some point.

It’s been quite a while since i have been on my laptop but today i wanted to test windows 7 speech recognition  programme. I didn’t even know windows 7 had a built in software so this is something new to me. It’s really funny and strange talking to a screen. As you can see this programme is making many mistakes. I am speaking in a clear concise manner with a British accent but i am quite disappointed at the results.

The following 3 paragraphs were written automatically with this programme.
