I am writing this on the Preview version of Window8 .
I loaded it on an extra hard drive that I have yesterday.
Not too bad so far.
There are some compatibility issues
with fonts that don't look right in email and other places.
The main screen is very different.
I had problems turning off the PC.
Where is the exit?
I keep searching for the usual desktop
to get to things I need to find.
The desktop background changes sometimes also
from the picture that I like.

from the place where the car was purchased
in Fremont, Nebraska.
It had the name of the car dealership
and "Proverbs 3:5-6" under it.
