    Are there any GOOD Windows 8 intro/overview videos?


    Just looking for something to send to my mostly computer illiterate friends/family, that will give a good overview of Windows 8, what Metro is, how you access the 'classic' desktop, etc. Most of the videos I've seen start talking about Metro and the start screen as if the viewer already knows what they are. I'm looking for something a little more basic than that

    Lynda.com has some free videos on Windows 8 Consumer Preview, which will be retired on Nov. 21. Worth checking out before they are removed.
