For those of you who know me and who follow me on Facebook especially, you might know that up until now Iíve been far from the biggest and most loyal supporter of Windows 8. I have found this difficult at times being a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) awardee for two years now in the Windows category. MVPs are independent experts but weíre always watched carefully by Microsoft, well I am anyway, and they take an interest in what we say and write.
Until now Iíve been a big supporter of Microsoftís products. After the unveiling of the Windows 7 beta just over three years ago Iíve felt that the company had got its mojo back, and was finally headed in the right direction. The quality of the products they have released the last three years including the Live Essentials Suite, SkyDrive, Kinect, Windows Server 2008 and especially Windows Phone gave me confidence that they had put years of stale development behind them.
