Yeah, I noticed how when you start Windows 7, it reverts back to the Standard bootloader, which is not too bad actually because the Windows 8 bootloader is very slow on my Computer. (Probably because Win8 is not installed onto the SSD)
Also it's seems there is some Kind of autocorrection build into this, how do I get rid of it?
One person called Windows 8 CP a console port.
Trying to sign into the live app.. all I get it 'You're signing in with an account that's different from your Windows region. To sign in with this account, please change your Windows region and restart the Xbox LIVE app.'
I've already changed the windows region and it's not working :/
Now it says 'Sorry, sign-in isn't supported in your region at this time.'
Microsoft doesn't care about UK residents at this time..? :(
Something I'm not really liking about Windows 8 is that it's kinda hard to navigate the metro apps as everything is so fucking big (optimized for touch). Metro would be so awesome if they actually adapted the metro apps to pointing devices that are precise and don't need bigass icons and buttons. Plus it'd save space.
I find it easier. You can hit 100x100 instead of a 32x32 area much more easily.
huh, why are my apps in German now, everything is set to be in English, yet all apps are in German.
Well, I'm pretty sure English is supported. :<
Now whenever I hover by the lower corners of the screen Windows 8 freezes up for a few seconds.
Nevermind, just any corner of the screen does it.
Heh, how am I going to install languages if it's empty.
If I select "Language name" again all languages appears but it doesn't stop there.
I can install languages that doesn't have any regional variants because the button simple becomes "Add" when selecting one, when selecting one that got regional variants it gets replaced with "Open" which would obviously show the variants but it's just empty for me, great.
I am impressed by that boot menu. Just about finished installing it alongside Windows 7 on my other machine. Install was fast and everything is pretty seamless.
Once you boot to Windows 7 again, you'll be on the old keyboard oriented one again.
To be honest; While it does have some nice features, I'm not that overall impressed by Windows 8. If it was cheap, I'd probably go for it, but otherwise I might skip.
Let's see the RC before I make a solid decision though.
I see some of this stuff and wonder why we didn't have it in Windows 7 though.
But then I wonder why we didn't have all the Windows 7 stuff in Windows Vista.
I like this OS, using IE with in metro, not using a tablet or touchscreen but yea, whatever
Everything is working smoothly after yesterday, I've not experienced any lock ups just yet which is new and every app seems to be functional..
I must be the lucky one?
Damn that charm is getting annoying. I actually ended up creating two bat files to make it easier to power off and reboot. shutdown /s /t 0 FTW.
neat you can close apps by dragging them down
Remove the entire metro crap and you have a decent and bloody fast OS.
Oh god help, windows 8 changed my windows 7 drive to E instead of C
Friend installed Windows 8 without partitioning his hard drive and now would like to go back to windows 7, anyway he can possibly do that or is he boned?
is there a way to change the volume of the music app while it's in the background?
Its not, it when I start it, it brings me to startup repair, which shows it as E
I am loving Windows 8.
I'll probably upgrade my computer to Windows 8, if not just buy a whole new computer with 8 on it.
I'm looking for something new and this might be it.
As much as I dislike the Metro interface currently, I'll probably still end up getting Windows 8 for the other improvements. Hopefully it gets added to MSDNAA at the same time it comes out so I can get it for free
That'd be cool, sucks that my college isn't in it though.
Maybe a discount though?
I can't get steam to update, its sticks at 99%
