Public țintă

While Microsoft Windows is the dominant operating system on PCs and other connected devices worldwide, consumers have been slow to warm to Windows 8. The dual interface that offers a shotgun marriage between a touch–enabled app screen and the traditional Windows work surface confused users and led many to hold off on upgrading. Windows 8.1 provides some relief, making changes that have been praised in the media. The final version of 8.1 is due in August as a free upgrade to existing Windows 8 users. Microsoft hopes it enhances the 5% share Windows 8 currently holds in the market.

Who are we targeting: This book targets older Windows users, both new users and those upgrading from previous releases, who are having trouble navigating the Windows 8.1 system. The unique dual–interface design of the system has proven especially challenging for this audience, leading to strong sales of the original edition of the book.
