What's with the fish?
What's with the fish?
This live webcast from The Verge is awesome. The Verge = Best tech site right now!
26 Minutes remaining for me.
Any performance improvements on W8?
Microsoft used a betta fish in the Windows 8 Beta?
"LIKE IT HASN'T ALREADY BEEN FUCKING DONE BEFORE!"
Wow that was a quicker install than I thought it'd be. It installed those shitty AMD drivers so now going anywhere near the screen it lags for a while. Did the same in the dev preview.
I can't really be bothered with doing a Dual boot, would I get away with just using Win8?
They changed the way the "move the mouse to one side" switching works, sweet. Having to use the scroll wheel to change between small thumbnails didn't work very well.
Guys, I got an idea, I want to install Win8 on my laptop ( offered by my highschool ), isn't too risky ?
Not sure I like how they've made the Start button on taskbar. You have to drag mouse to very bottom left of screen and then it'll popup for you to click.
The new weather app blows the previous one away.
Got it installed now as my only OS on my desktop. Only way I'll really see if I like it.
Already, many things I dislike (at least by default, hopefully I can customise a ton)
Installing it right now, wanted to do it on a VHD but somehow it didn't like it. (Told me it couldn't boot from it and thus not install it there but I found an empty 40GB partition which I used now, I hope I didn't fuck anything up)
Installing Customer Preview on my tablet right now, I'll finally make a video of it once I install
A new 3D pinball game!
Okay, installed! Multiscreen support seems to be "weird". I got Metro on the left, but the normal desktop on the right.
I'm really impressed so far. It's got everything from my phone, too. I didn't have to set up Gmail, for example.
I'm missing Live Mesh, though. I can see SkyDrive, but not stuff synced with Mesh.
Windows 8 supports widescreen wallpapers (ala one long wallpaper for both displays)
That system requirements checker thing

My CPU might be crappy, but it is 2GHz

About 30 seconds into logging in someone on WLM sent me a message and it went through the messages app. Now I love that. You can even dock the messages off to the side and always have that there. This is just brilliant.
All my Metro apps just turned German.
I was curious as to how I could use the app switcher with two monitors, Win+Tab now shows that sidebar of running apps. Neat.
WEI gives quite different results.
