Windows 8 is coming to tablets and PCs in stores on October 26, 2012.

Windows “version 8” is upon us. Bringing changes to the old and safe, the familiar. Some say the changes are for the best, others dread them, swear to keep the Seven for a long time yet (some even say they will never abandon XP as long as there’s hardware to support it). That is how changing things works. But, the awful truth is, that, what seems new and daunting will undoubtedly after a while seem like the most natural thing in the world, something you just can’t imagine life without. Do you think that the changes in “Version 8” are overwhelming ? Then try imagine being back when Windows was first introduced…
