       yes, I did in the stores.

       When the HD died on my computer, I had to look at what was out there
- the changes astounded me;
            WIN8 is designed to mesh with these hand-helds, which use
applications designed by MsFT   ;-(

       These are designed for speed, which gives one no time to think
before responding ...
            these are designed to use without the usual keyboard; some have
one but it doesn't operate the same way at all  ;-(

       Therefore, if your idea is to write, research, or even communicate
via e-mail with others, then I have no clue as to why one would use these
newest 'gadgets' - at least I do not want to memorize these acronyms,
emoticons, ... I will stick to using proper, grammatically correct
sentences to describe my thoughts.

       As for those with poor eye-sight, or arthritis, or with only 1 hand
            I happen to know a couple of blind individuals who had been
able to communicate via their computers through these reading-text programs
- these do not operate on the newer machines; and the WIN8 ones are not
designed to help these folks at all.

Hi :)
Someone from the Accessibility List has been using it but it takes a lot
to set it up for screen-readers and the person's other normal Windows
tweaks are taking a lot of effort this time.

I didn't ask how great the general move to touch-screen functionality is,
for non-fully-sighted users!

Subject: [libreoffice-users] has anyone tried LO on Windows 8?

I know that Windows 8 just came out, and a lot of people are waiting for
their new Win8 systems to be delivered.  The real question is "has anyone
tried LibreOffice on a Win8 machine?"

With their new touch-optimized OS, and all of their changes to the way
you use and access the apps on it, I was wondering how LibreOffice is
"running" on this "radically" new environment.

I was reading a set of articles about Windows 8 and the pros and cons of
upgrading your current OS to it.  There was "talk" on how some software had
to be changed to deal with the "formally known as Metro" environment.
There were many different opinions about what was going to be needed to be
done to make current packages work "properly" with the new environment.

So, has anyone out there tried Windows 8 and LO with it?  Desktop version
and touch screen laptop-style system?
