Introducing Windows 8 (Jerry Honeycutt) pdf, epub, doc

I must admit, I started reading this book from a very negative point of view. I had heard much about Windows 8 over the past few months, and everything I heard made me more and more frustrated, negative, and scared.
I haven't had time to actually install the operating system anywhere, but I know that, as an IT professional, I would have to at some point, so I used this book as a sort of "primer."

Now that I have finished it, my feelings are a bit more mixed. Jerry Honeycott explains things fairly well, and in enough detail for me. I still have an intense dislike for the "Modern UI" (previously known as the Metro UI) and apps. As someone who routinely has five or six windows open on the screen at a time (and another ten or twenty applications running), which you can't do on the Windows 8 Modern UI which only shows one (two at the most) applications at a time, it's not going to work for me on the PC.
I had previously read that the familiar Windows Desktop was available on Windows 8, but I also read somewhere that it was provided as a "bridge" or "backward compatibility feature," and wouldn't be available come Windows 9. This book doesn't mention anything about that, and so I must assume that the plan is for the Desktop to always be available, which I would welcome.

I'm excited about the new management and security features in Windows 8, and the new virtualisation options as well (Pooled VMs look amazing!). It's also pretty cool that users can do a "Refresh" of their installation from the troubleshooting screen, which I think it basically a new version of System Restore. However, Windows 8 will also allow any user to, at the click of a button, completely format their hard drive and install Windows from scratch! Providing that functionality to end users who have no IT training or experience, with no passwords or failsafes... Are they insane?!

So in conclusion, I'm still not crazy about the prospect of running Windows 8 on my PC, but I'm not quite as dead set against it as I was. Thanks Jerry! :)
