Windows 8 and Filemaker 12
Has anyone tried Filemaker 12 on Windows 8 and will Filemaker install and run on any of the new Windows 8 tablets?
Ever hear of the "penguin principle"?
Supposedly penguins don't just walk up to the water and dive in. Instead they crowd the edge waiting for someone else to jump/fall/get pushed in and then they watch to see if it get's eaten by a shark or leopard seal. If not, then they jump in.
I think everyone's still crowding the edge of the ice at this point. Care to stand in front of me while I lean on your shoulders?
I'm considering a new laptop and can get with 7 or with 8. I will get 8 if everyone who is standing near the edge will send me $10 or $20 for an ongoing update... :)
How bad can it be, it's Windows right?
For future reference, take a look at http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4701/~/filemaker-pro-operating-system-requirements---all-versions and consider that my resume. I purchased one of the first copies of the original Nashoba version and each version and upgrade since, except for 10.
We called it 'the bleeding edge' and the sounds of wailing from those who couldn't wait to install the latest and greatest Mac OS and Word and Filemaker and 4D and... I evolved the idea of never installing or buying anything before v3 but seldom stuck to it...
Can I install Windows 8 and Widows 7 in separate bootable partitions like I could Mac OS? That might be doable for me.
This from March2014- perhaps Filemaker has integrated since then?
