    New to WordPress. Been using AOLPRESS for many years. Have 60+ AOLPRESS websites some running more than ten years. Old XP computer died, have new Windows 8 computer. Want to switch to WordPress. Will WordPress work on Windows 8?

    My websites are very basic, pictures and text! Nothing fancy. Would like something like AOLPRESS, start with empty screen, add text and pictures, change test sizes and colors, add tables, and progress from there. Can I do this with WORDPRESS? I'm self-taught, some am somewhat of a computer illiterate!

    You only had one?! ;)

    WordPress is its own platform independent of any operating system, but there are ways to install it alongside Windows or whatever if you want to develop your site locally.

    pictures and text...start with empty screen, add text and pictures, change test sizes and colors, add tables...somewhat of a computer illiterate!

    Look for a theme that has templates like you want for displaying your content, then add content. The built-in content editor will let you do much of what you have mentioned, but I do not know anything about tables. Some of that might require theme customizations.

    Well, not exactly, had an old Dell desktop (2006), A Dell mini laptop, and a Google Nexus 7, used the desktop for websites. I didn't use templates, so I really don't need a lot of fancy stuff.
    Thanks for the comments!
