On this day, Oct 12, 2012 – Windows 8


According to my Facebook “On this day”. It was 5 years ago today, Windows 8 was made available for pre-order. I bravely pre-ordered it, and later installed it when came out on October 26th.

Windows 8 was not a totally bad Windows operating system, especially under the hood. However, design wise, it was a rude awakening, and took time to get used to.

I did install Windows 8 on all of my machines back then. It worked perfectly fine, and the Start Screen was the only inconvenience really (maybe the boot to start, charms, and the corner gestures also).
