About This Comic: Upgrade

A dash of color for your Wednesday Webcomic. Please don’t get used to it. It merely serves the gag.

I was persuaded to make the move to Windows 8 by a good friend who alerted me that the special promo pricing was ending. I figured “why not?” for forty bucks since I’m usually an idiot who pays full retail. I wandered to a newish laptop in Staples and played around with the new look and realized I had no idea what I was doing. We can’t have that, can we?

I thought things went perfectly with the upgrade until I began producing  this strip and figured I’d give the Music app a spin in the background.

Guess what? No sound at all. I love the new look and Metro tiles but take away my music library and… well, we can’t have that, either! This turned into two hour delay and the only progress I made was that the Music app worked on a dummy local account.

Good grief. Don’t sue me Microsoft. I’m a happy customer, more or less. Let’s not get into PC vs. Mac. That grew old in 1998.

Now if you’ll excuse me, time for another lynda.com session. The Windows 8 Essentials course is where you’ll find me.
