If you’re not yet fully engaged with a smartphone and haven’t learned the gestural language of computer touch screens, Windows 8 will feel like new media, indeed.
You’ll be glad to know you have a friendly guide in My Windows 8 Consumer Preview: A Sneak Peek at the Windows 8 Public Beta, by Windows Secrets contributor Katherine Murray. This book explains everything — from using the colorful components of the Windows 8 interface to finding your apps; using the seamless Web; and buying, displaying, and engaging music, photos, and games.
