The old Dell Studio 1535 has been upgraded to Windows 8 Release Preview. After the operating system upgrade, the next step involved installing Microsoft Word 2013 Preview. I am a writer. Modernity’s shadow has set on pen and paper. The word processor is probably here to stay. Right now, my preferred method of building prose involves a keyboard. At some point, voice recognition software will probably make working with a keyboard less intrinsic to the prose generation process. Crowded spaces and entertainment viewing civility will always necessitate the use of an input device.
So far the Microsoft Word 2013 Preview install seems stable and very usable.
