Choosy Dads Choose Windows 8

I got a couple e-mails recently from a guy who goes by the name Frugal Dad, who is apparently a dad and frugal. One thing Dad, who I think is actually named Colin, is against is Windows 8 haters. While Colin doesn't use the preview of Win 8, he has seen it, and "the new operating system seems like a bold move for Microsoft. Modeled after today's wildly successful smartphones, Windows 8 could prove to be a real gambit in the PC world," he concludes.

To get the word out, Colin, Dad, er, Frugal has put together a graphic you can post yourself. Hit up his Web site and check it out for yourself!
