Windows 8 - friend or foe?

Published on 22 January 2013

Currently, as you will have seen from our Announcements, we do not recommend that you upgrade to Windows 8, or purchase a Windows 8 machine as there are a number of issues and a few compatability problems with University and other services. However for many of you, the choice of whether to run Windows 8 or not is not one you can make - Windows phones, new laptops, PCs or the Surface come with it ready installed.

We still want you to be able to access all our services so we have put together a series of webpages giving you the best advice we can at this time, including how to connect to Eduroam and other University services. These pages will be updated as we have more information and with further developments. Please see
