I have now begun to write "The Windows 8 Power Users Guide" in anger, having spent a few days having a deep dig into the Consumer Preview of the operating system. This book, to be published by APress later in the year, is the first commercial version of my own "Power Users Guide" series which began with Windows Vista. The 170 page Windows 7 Power Users Guide is now free and can be downloaded here.
This new book will be for enthusiasts, IT Pros and business users and I want to make sure that it's your book all the way through. So the question I have for you today is, now that the Consumer Preview version of Windows 8 has been released and you've all had a chance to either read about it or use it yourself, "What do you want to see in the Windows 8 Power Users Guide?"
Let me know here in the comments what type of book you would like to see. Do you want me to focus on detailed step by step and how to tutorials or would you like a strong focus on customising the operating using registry and other hacks? Perhaps you'd like strong information on using Windows 8 as a part of your digital world by making sure that it will integrate and work effectively with all your other operating systems and devices, whether they be from Microsoft or not.
Whatever it is that you want to see in a book for Windows 8 Power Users, and people who aspire to be power users and IT Pros, let me know and I'll make sure it's included. I've always been very impressed how tech-savvy and knowledgeable you all are here at gHacks so if anybody's going to have requests I know they'll all be great. With your help we can make sure that The Windows 8 Power Users Guide does more than go Inside Out, has much more than just Secrets and that it certainly isn't for Dummies!
Thank you all.
