Windows 8, What Does This Mean for Schools? - MicroK12 Blog | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

Last week Microsoft released the new Windows 8 Operating System. What we have seen so far is quite a break from how they have done things in the past, getting rid of the Start menu and implementing Metro – a re-imagining of what Windows will be going forward with.

"We are involved in residential projects where we can achieve 80-per-cent reduction in energy use and become essentially greenhouse gas neutral through the implementation of cost-effective technologies," Hood said.
