Someone over at MDL actually managed to get the payment through using his credit card, but the key given was invalid and apparently didn't look like a normal key.

Pirate Bay and other torrents have these so-called leaked copies but don't think for one minute that MS doesn't know this. They will be watching and they will start busting people for illegally obtaining these copies.

Like ALL the times before that?

I made a tutorial for how to set a task so that the watermark nag goes away automatically every 3 hours. Some people may just prefer to restart it via Task Manager.

It is amazing how many people are concerned with this little watermark. Looks to me these leaked versions are strangers everybody wants to adopt and make them pretty.

I also made my small review of the situation.

It's called perfectionism.

One thing I've noticed is that a lot of the background patterns for the start screen interfere with text labels. Notice the text above the first group (it reads "Most Used" in case you can't make it out):

Personally i'd wait. Still not a great deal of mainstream driver support yet (from what I gather the ATI drivers made for the release preview are particularly bad), and not all software has been updated to work with it yet. I'd hold off until it's in public hands in September, that's when support should start picking up.

Wondering myself. Can you install, then just purchase a key when it's released on technet, from within the os?

      HI,

      Hope there are still some Surface2 (RT)  Win8 users around, as I still use mine almost daily besides my S3.

      The tablet ran the latest 04-2018 security update yesterday, but it messed up all my installed apps. Almost all of them refused to start and got stuck on the start/icon screen.
      It doesn't really matters if it's MS native apps or 3rd party ones.
      After some fiddling I got some of them to start again, by starting/closing them frequently, but are dog slow atm.

      While this was all happening, CPU and harddrive usage was over 60-70%%, as if Windows was still doing stuff. Even after multiple reboots/shutdowns.

      Also, the apps that refuse to start (for now) are apps that are not in the Store anymore. Coincidence?
      Does this sound familiar to someone, or did I just got a bad update experience?

      cheers!

      Hi All,
       
      I am trying to mend my parents in law's computer. It's a Lenovo with Windows 8. The computer is extremely slow - loading up the computer you need at least two attempts - the first attempt you get a blue screen. Using the PC I've encountered that the computer is extremely slow - mouse stops when you are moving it etc...
       
      I've run a disk cleanup and then also a virus run. These did not make a big difference.
       
      Does anyone have any further ideas on how to remedy this problem? Would prefer not to reboot the entire machine as I have lost the Office 2010 code.

      Do you use the Libraries feature introduced in Windows 7 and / or the Saved Search (otherwise known as Virtual Folder) feature introduced in Windows Vista? If so, do you have a preference for either feature?

      While I like both features I, as you probably expected, prefer the Saved Search feature. Both Libraries and Saved Searches consolidate content from multiple locations in a single view, and both allow users to customize their viewing experience based on the content displayed. Libraries, however, only allow users to display content based on folder locations (e.g., they cannot reference content based solely on dates, file attributes, et cetera), and users must manually add folders to a library before their content will appear.

      In contrast, Saved Searches can reference multiple locations simultaneously—or an individual folder(s) if that is what a user desires—based on a user's criteria such as specific names, dates, metadata, types, and words or phrases within files themselves. Also unlike Libraries, users can refine their Saved Search results with Boolean operators, natural language search (in Windows Vista and Windows 7), query composition, and / or the options offered by the column headers in File Explorer.

      I don't know what to do. It is driving me crazy. None of the solutions suggested have work. I turned off the adaptive brightness feature in the advanced settings and I also disabled the sensor in the msconfig and it still lower the brightness to almost not visible. I have a Sony Vaio that came with windows 8 and upgraded to 10. It does it with both versions.
