Well it is more difficult to find programs and even shut down your PC without the start menu.

But you can install V Start that will give you both the start orb and the Windows 7 start menu in Windows 8 CP. And there are a few other programs that do this. But what would be the best solution is for Microsoft to give us the option to disable Metro, like we could in DP. that is what most people want.

I don't want the Metro theme.I want the Windows 7 desktop and start menu. I hate the Metro theme. Andrea Borman.

How is it more difficult to start programs? Just start typing the program you want to run at the start screen and it will search your programs for you.

Very difficult.Especially if there are bugs in the operating system and it is very slow and keeps crashing all the time. That's what it's like on Windows 8 CP. And also it's no start menu and the Metro theme.

I want a normal version of Windows with a normal desktop and start menu. Like Windows 7,Windows XP and Windows Vista. And even Windows 2000,98 and 95 has got this. But Windows 8 CP has not.

Instead of calling it Windows 8 Consumer Preview,why not call it WINDOWS 8 NIGHTMARES PREVIEW. Because being stuck with Windows 8 CP is our worst nightmare. Most people including me will not be able to use a computer any more. Andrea Borman.

Well unfortunately Windows 8 CP is very bad. And it is exactly like that. You cannot use it because there are so many problems. So WINDOWS 8 NIGHTMARES PREVIEW is a good name for it.Why don't Microsoft just let up and make Windows 8 with a normal Windows 7 desktop and start menu?

But I don't think they are going to do that. Andrea Borman.

Send Microsoft your feedback if you want them to change the Windows 8 desktop experience. But quit your bitching on here! It is annoying to no end. </rant>

If you tried using Windows 8 on something other then a mediocre netbook you'd realize it's actually faster then Windows 7.

Metro is here to stay. If you don't like it then just keep using Windows 7 and stop trying to drag everyone down with you.

If she tried using it at all, since she has no idea what metro actually is.

Well I wrote to my local emperor d. sidious and he agreed that the threat Windows 8 nightmare edition represents is too grave to go unanswered.

He said he'll be sending some imperial destroyers to take out the OS factory in Redmond "in the coming weeks/months" so fear not, we should be Windows safe for some time to come.

I've read a lot of comments in different parts of the web that complain about Windows 8. Apparently it's not going over well despite a lot of fanboys belief to the contrary. I feel Metro is okay but the desktop experience is poorly done.

Yes, they work fine. Currently you either have to set them up on the desktop IE or browse to the IE gallery here.

It's quite ceceiving to see on that gallery that nobody made an adblock for IE. :/

See? Depends on your perception as to how you see the situation.

Easylist doesn't seems to provide adblocking but TPL only.

Fanboy seems to block ads well. I had nary an ad since enabling it on IE9 and now IE10.

Really enjoying the Immersive music player now that I have gotten myself to use it instead of Zune. A lot of Zune's functionality has been built into it. I can't wait to see what the app will look like at release. :D

So (if anyone is still actively checking this thread) has there been a solution found to the non-existent sound coming from laptop speakers issue? When I am plugged into the head phones jack, the sound plays fine, but normally thru the laptop speakers there is nothing. All drivers are installed properly as well (Dell Vostro 1400)

Any Help is appreciated to anyone who knows about this issue. Thanks.

Hmmm.. It seems to be an issue with a lot of people.

I installed it on a Vaio S, a week ago or so, and after the installation, all was good. Sound included. The other day, the sound went off, for no good reason. :/

After two days, it came back again. Just out of the blue.

Still working fine, as of this last day.

Well :

a) It's a beta so bugs like that aren't supported.

b) It's probably a driver issue (they can be outdated even if they are installed properly!).
