Download Windows 8 For Dummies – Free eBook from Dell

So you say Windows 8 has got you flustered! Really? Apart from the start screen, what is really so different in it as compared to Windows 7? Sure I agree the start screen does fly in your face when you don’t want it to and it may get some time getting used to, but in a week or so, when you have got used to it, you may actually even start (gulp) liking it. Nevertheless, if there are some of you or your friends, who have made the switch to Windows 8, and need some help, the Windows 8 for Dummies is  a great eBook. It is now available as a free download from Dell.

    After trying it several times I got it to download, looks like the server is overwhelmed.

  • Howard

    Well, the server seems to be OK now but the link does not take you to a download page at all. You’re redirected to an info page for 8 Home & 8 Business.
