About the Author
Katherine Murray has been writing about technology since the prehistoric age before Microsoft Windows. She has worked with every consumer version of Windows that’s been made — marveled at Windows 3.1, swore at Windows ME, enjoyed Windows XP, considered suicide while using Windows Vista, and feels as though, with Windows 8, we have arrived at a sleek, smart, reasonably light-weight operating system that does pretty much what most of us need it to do.
