Excited? Not really no. I will download it, and I will install it onto a Virtual Machine. From the Dev Preview, Pictures, Articles, etc, I am not a fan of Tiles, or the Metro styling of the interface. I am more going into the CP to see if there is a way to reduce tiles/the tiled start screen to be gone completely (simmilar to dev preview) and a way to possibly skin/alter the metro look. Really my testing is to see if I can get Windows 8 to look and act like Windows 7 in the interface and functionality department.

Can't wait to laugh about it.

You mean you should enjoy your viruses. Windows Store is going to be source of malware.

No -- no point in using Windows 8

+ 1 :laugh:


Well you 4 may as well not even bother and stay with Windows 7.

But can you do me a favour before you do, tell us all what the final release of Windows 8 is like, because you all seem to know what it's like before us and possiblely the developers at MS.

That's been my plan all along -- along with Windows XP. :shifty:

All I need to know about Windows 8 is, it will not do anything better or different for ME, that I can't do now.

If Windows 8 tickles your funny bone, go shell out lotsa money and enjoy.

Why ruin the surprise for you? That wouldn't be very nice of us.

You don't have to, its optional to use a live id. You are free to setup a standard local account.

You seem to forget the new hardware that tends to be needed, as well as newer software programs. :laugh:
