About Windows 8...
Maybe not the right place, but I was too lazy to create another account on some forum for this single question. And I'm sure you smart boys & girls know answers
For work, I'll start making a Tablet application soon. This tablet uses Windows 8, which should be aimed specifically at touch devices. So, I'd better utilize those functions properly right?
However, I never used Win8 so far, and I have MS Visual Studio 2008. I'm pretty sure I can just make a program that runs on that tablet, but how about all those nifty modern touch, swipe, drag, pinch, twitch, snitch, snatch, crap, "gestures"?
* What are really useful new Win8 features?
* To use those, is it recommended to upgrade Visual Studio? Or is there some expansion pack for VS 2008?
For the info, this program doens't have to be a state of the art cutting edge thing. It's mainly used in a warehouse to scan articles, navigate through stocks, handle picking lists and that sort of things. Nevertheless, having a nice UI really works. 50 year old non-technical persons should feel comfortable as well with this program. And since my 4 year old daughter knows how to use/screw up these kind of devices as well, I guess the concept works hehe.
