QUAD-CITIES COMPUTER SOCIETY
Windows 8 presented by Larry Stone QCS Windows SIG Leader


Windows 8 is the brand new operating system from Microsoft. It has been in development for over 2 years and was finally released to the public in October. Many of you may have Windows 8 computers as holiday gifts. The changes are significant and our own computer "guru", Larry Stone, will give us an in-depth review to kick off 2013. Larry describes computers in plain language that all can follow. Be there, Monday, January 7th at 7:00 PM at the Butterworth Education Center located at 7th Street and 12th Avenue, Moline, IL 61265.

A special invitation to new computer users is being extended to attend the Beginners SIG (Special Interest Group ) which meets at 5:30 PM just before the main meeting.

QCS monthly program meetings are free, handicapped accessible and open to the public. Check the Society's website for more details,www.qcs.org.
