The really cool thing about this latest….

The really cool thing about this latest OS release from Microsoft isn’t how cool the Windows OS is by itself though I admit it’s a lot faster and easier to use. It’s the power of the seamless integration and co-existence with the Server products.. But it doesn’t stop there.

image

The Microsoft product line (Applications, Servers, Operating Systems, Tools) have all matured. Though I dream of the days when Microsoft would just listen to the market and include all of the widgets everyone wanted into the next OS. I remember all too well when several governments considered Microsoft a monopoly and I would like to avoid at all costs what that misled finding did to the products and company I love and perhaps took for granted. If you still need your start menu, I am sure one will be available via the app store in the near future…
