I am in love with this. It feels so fluid, smooth, and the classic desktop environment is so nice, although, I admit, It would be nice to still have the button on the bottom right VISIBLE, to show/hide the desktop. You only see it when you click it, otherwise it's invisible space.
Also, stay away from Firefox Nightly in the Consumer Preview, the damn thing crashes when you try to browse for a file to upload to a website. The normal 10.0.2 stable build works just fine.
Worth replacing Win 7? Are there issues with AMD cards?
my motherboard does not support virtual hard drives
So, what's actually new in consumer's preview compared to developer's one apart from removed start button?
This new START seems really annoying.
The button is really small, and I have a screen to the left of the start 'button', so it's not just possible to throw the mouse in the corner.
Also, i can't seem to find any exit buttons inside the apps in start? I HAVE to alt+f4 to exit them? or am I missing something?
The search in start also seems quite.. bad compared to the awesome search capabilities in Windows 7.
And now I can't even close the START screen? Icons disappear but I've still got my background color on the screen, and as soon as i hit the mouse or anything, the icons come back on....
This is pretty cool, I can probably get used to aero.
Also like the fact they are finally doing things like this:
Instead of the applications just crashing because there's no .NET.
How's the search different?
I really dont see why we Microsoft wants us to be, as far as I can see, forced to use these full-screen apps? I can't even update my windows without using my hole screen?
The new search just seems to slow and dumb. In windows 7 you could quickly throw in a word like 'update' and hit enter - then Windows update would start. Now I have to browse between Apps, settings and so on?
Get used to using Win-D to get to the desktop quick, I guess.
Also a taskbar on the second monitor without any extra software? Fucking finally Microsoft. Also proper support for spanning wallpapers between two monitors.
I really wish it would be possible to scroll while in metro with dragging the mouse as opposed to how it is now. I find it quite the pain to navigate things as it is.
So I just finished installing
I feel so violated without the start button
Also goodbye displayfusion!
ok 200 gb partition made on a storage drive
now lets do this
Microsoft site is slow.
Alternate host anywhere?
I think I should fix my G15 so I can use my windows button again.
Argh, I hate all of you. I'm downloading at a slow 400 kB/s...
Is there any efficient way to dowmgrade back to windows XP without having to format whole partition? I'm having only one and I guess trying to simply override the newer win installation will result in damaging current system...
Oh, it's not a Windows problem then.
Posted from my Windows 8 PC.
Its getting worse.
A windows firewall window popped up on top of a metro application. I tried to click one of the buttons and the whole thing broke, had to reboot the whole thing.
I'm having serious problems viewing files on other HDD's, specifically the roaming folder, just the .minecraft folder shows up
So I wonder if they're going to stick with "8" as the final name - I haven't heard anything about a new name and they seem to have stopped putting "Code Name" in front of the title.
OH YES! I got 1%!
