My wife is a touch typist and is a translator. No way will she go onto Win 8.

The most important tool for her is her keyboard. She can use all the shorcuts to speed her work up.

How stupid to think that she might want to use a touch screen. I can imagine many people having serious arm problems with a touch screen.

Lets face it, the new version sis designed at Tablets and people using the touch screen.

This is worth looking through completely before you decide to upgrade http://reviews.cnet.com/windows/microsoft-windows-8/4505-3672_7-35321713.html#lf_comment=41958240

Question. Will it run Opene Office which is free? From what i can see you will need the new Office software. I may be wrong about that. However Microsoft are looking to make loads of dosh out of everybody.
