I’m missing you already Windows 8..

That’s my thought for the day.. As I’m busy working away on both Windows XP and Windows 7, I’m finding that I really miss some of the little things in Windows 8.

For those who know me, I’m a news junky.. I think I’m addicted to news, regardless of what it is, I just have to know, and know now. It’s one of the main reasons I have a Windows Phone, and the biggest reason I jumped head first into Windows 8. Instead of having to open apps/web sites, I now just rely entirely on live tiles. “Hey look, there are some unread articles”..

The other killer for me, is the ease of navigation around windows 8 with the keyboard. Yes, I know, lots of reviews will have you think that Windows 8 is touch only, but put simply, I find I now spend a lot less time reaching for the mouse than ever.
