It has some similarities to Mac, more so than other Windows programs. You do what you have to do. I run Publisheer on a PC but most other programs run fine on Mac. I hated Windows 8 at first but have learned I can function just fine.

LOL  I'm with Michael Setunsky !  I clung to XP as long as I could...even paid extra for it when ordering new laptops in the past.  Eventually I went to Windows 7 Professional and am very happy with it.  Windows 8?  HATE it.  I think they will still support Windows 7 for another 5 years, so I'll be there until the fat lady sings.

Michael Thornton I'm still using Windows 7 with no problems and don't want to ruin a good thing. Other than the obvious answer, I'm still wondering why they did away with Windows XP.

Michael so far so good.  I haven't had any issues with it yet.  I did find out for our virtual website I must use IE as it will not work using Chrome or Firefox.

I loved XP, Then I got Windows 7, which I liked, but I hate Windows 8.1. I switched my main computer back to Windows 7.

I sometimes use it at my step-daughters and I just am not used to it...but seems more complicated.

Michael Thornton - don't worry, you'll get it! You are a smart man. If you can do great home inspections, you know WINDOWS in-n-out! In fact you can teach us about Windows, correct? (just kidding....)

It's little different - and okay, not as much sturdy as Mac. I know, you can do it!

We have been very pleased with Windows 8.1. However, it is important for your tech support person to set it up in a familiar format.
