Unfortunately, for no known reason my live weather tile stopped working the other. I did a refresh which brought it back, but unfortunately when it did it apparently, somehow, also killed the sound which I couldn’t get back without reinstalling the whole thing over again, which to say the least was totally frustrating.

Even OS X has built in help, including videos and this is something Microsoft should have done from the get go. Like you, I’m in a bad need for a fresh format so hurry up Apple and bring out OS X Mavericks, I’m getting bored!

Good luck with your blog… and if you need any more help trying to figure out Win8, just drop me a line. :)

Geez, I’d have given you a tutorial but thought it was common-sense…

Did the thought occur to you that you need to know how to use the OS in order to get and use the tutorials in the first place? If this was someone’s first computer (and quite likely is), and this is their first experience, what does that say about the quality of the product? Releasing something and expecting the population to instinctively know how to use it?

One of the first things people were doing with the OS was using another computer to search online to figure out how to turn the computer off! I’m sorry, but if a product requires a third-party to tell you how to use it, then it’s badly designed, sloppy and lazy. It’s what, taken Microsoft a year to release this?

“Heh… Tech writers have the foresight and attention span of three-year-olds. Bring back XP? lmfao.”

Excuse me if I can’t take you too seriously. Also, you may want to lay off the “child” comments… it could get redundant.

My search of the store returned 93 results. On the first page alone, 14 of them were free.

That’s logic I can’t side with. I hopped in there and searched around for tutorials, and all I could find was one that costs $14.99, and of course, it’s not from Microsoft.

There’s no excuse for Microsoft not bundling tutorials with its OS… none.
