Windows 8 installed

I have downloaded and installed Windows 8 onto my Acer Touchscreen computer on the day it was released, 26 October 2012, and I have got to say it did the upgrade effortlessly onto my Windows 7 partition.

I had two original versions of Windows 7 installed onto the computer. The original Windows 7 Home Premium that Acer Touchscreen came with, and I also partitioned the drive and put my original version of Windows 7 Professional that I owned on as well. When I upgraded the Home Premium version to Windows 8 Pro it left me my Windows 7 Professional partition as well which I have kept because I can use Windows XP Mode on it to play my music and FME fruit machine emulator.

I am having a wonderful time using it… Even though I have been using my Apple MacBook and Apple iPad and iPhone as well.

Well done Microsoft!

My name is Daryl and I was born in October 1965. I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease in June 2011, and I was put on medication, which I believe is helping keep the worst of the condition at bay. In November 2012 I was also diagnosed with the first stages of Parkinson's Disease and I am now two lots of medication for this illness as well. I live in a secure bungalow in an elderly complex in my hometown of Sutton-in-Ashfield and I have support from the social services and a support worker who visits six hours per week to help me live my life as independently as possible. Visit me on my Facebook page... I love life now, and the people in it - so show your support for me and the organisations that support dementia and Parkinson's disease - let's make this small world of ours a much more pleasant place to live in by caring for those that need that little bit more help in life!
