Windows 8 was officially released to the public on Oct 26, 2012. With its new touch-based UI and integration with Microsoft's cloud infrastructure, it represents a marked change in direction for Microsoft's flagship OS. Some see the UI direction as too radical, focused on the consumer market and not business friendly. Some have wholeheartedly embraced its ambitious goals and integrated online experience while business and others may skip this version altogether due to higher training costs. In this talk Peter will outline the major features in Windows 8, ways to adapt to it, and whether UW should implement it or avoid it altogether
