The new version of Windows - Windows 8 - is officially available to consumers as of today. With many people still running Windows XP, which is now 11 years old and reaches its end of life in 2013, Windows 8 is not the version of Windows we recommend running out and buying. For anyone running Liberty, as of right now Liberty is not compatible with Windows 8.
Microsoft has done us a favor and doubled the amount of steps it takes to shutdown/restart Windows 8 (as compared to Windows 7).
Windows 8 is officially scheduled to launch on October 26th, 2012. The Computer Peeps are actively testing and evaluating Windows 8. We'll go into more details in subsequent posts, but thus far, we're already seeing consignment applications fail to install on Windows 8.
