that's awesome, GB! So can someone put a full list of awesome feature discoveries so we can try them out ourselves if that's not a problem??

By "someone" you really mean me, right?
Well i think I'll be continuing posting here.

Oh! Windows Experience Index, max score has been increase to 9.9!
My laptop GPU score (the lowest one) passed from 3.5 (up from 3.1 from Vista) with Win7, is now 2.7. I don't know if it's a GPU driver optimization problem, or that the the scoring system got more strict.

Another cool thing. Do Win+Tab. Flip 3D has been replaced with a side view Alt+Tab thing. But it shows only Metro Apps, and the desktop (if open). Alt+Tab shows the application in desktop. While it might sound confusing.. I think it's smart, it simplifies when you want to switch between Metro application, and aren't submerged with a full desktop of running programs.

Win+I show the property side bar
Win+X shows that corner shortcut to stuff menu.
Win+C shows the Chime bar
Win+B focuses the task bar, and select the Up arrow of the notification bar
Win+, opens a mysterious program, and all window/prog on the desktop turn transparent.
Win+. Makes the focused metro app, or desktop move to the right of the screen, do it again and it slides to the left, and then back to full screen.

Windows has it's own volume on screen indicator, if you didn't know already.

Annoying thing:
Is that they seams to have remove "manage network connection", so now you can't prioritize connection or modify the configuration of one.. this made configuring the wireless for university a pain. Hopefully it will come back.

Fun detail... you know when you move to the bottom left corner you have the icon to show you the start screen.. well that icon layout on the picture, matches what you have on the actual start screen. Pretty cool attention to detail there. Clearly the person that coded that feature had a lot of fun, to think about this. I am sure anyone else would just put a standard per-generated icon.

There is no blue screen to my knowledge in Win8, it's black screen of dead (BSOD). No?
Also, I really don't understand your post. :/

Installed it on my netbook last night, but due to the screen size being 1024x600 it can't open the app store and says it might not be able to open other apps.

Does anyone know of a workaround for netbooks to trick it into thinking the screen resolution is bigger. Also does anyone know why some metro apps are limited by screen resolution?

I am thinking of trying this out on a spare HD on my main desktop (I don't want to mess around with my anal file system on my SSD's).

My main query though is how does it (Metro Interface more than anything) work with multi monitors / Eyefinity - specifically ones running in Portrait mode?

Running multi monitors is an absolute must for me so this is critically important.

I can always test it out as ultimately if it doesn't work properly I can just re-boot into Win7 but it would be nice to hear thoughts from anyone who has tried already.

this worked for me. only problem is now normal text in desktop mode are harder to read. but being a cheap netbook, its TN screen is hideous and hard to read anyway.
http://www.netbooklive.com/how-to-ge...-netbook-2772/




i installed it on VMware first, was terrible to use in windowed mode due to hot corners doesn't work. made it into full screen mode and experience became much better. loving the ultra fast transitions.

but the metro start menu doesn't belong to desktop. plain and simple. neither does the wi-fi network selector, the right pop-up menu. instead of moving no more than 300 pixels to get through start menu, i now have a 2560x1440 with massive icons that doesn't belong to the desktop and mouse.

then, i installed onto my netbook with my Live accoount, and applied above hack to get metro apps working. Metro and its apps makes a bit more sense on a netbook screen. but it is still really stupid and unintuitive to use due to ill defined right button. (sometimes it brings up bottom bar, or use it to select stuff, other times it doesn't do anything at all)

be careful, it will auto signed into Messenger if you setup with your Live account, which is really intrusive.


overall, i will be skipping Win8 for my desktop, and sticking to iOS for tablets. (win8 on ARM isn't compatible with anything, x86 have crap battery life) Metro was a mistake for desktops as start menu, it doesn't fit use of mouse at all and hard to use.

The safest option would be booting it (just like you would Win7) onto a completely seperate HD.

Installed as primary system last night. Sure is going to take some getting used to - will stick it out though.

Aside from that, the one MAJOR problem is that the existing Intel chipset drivers don't work, which means no IRST, NCQ etc, which leaves me worried about my current system performance...

Evo, let me know how the server is, I'm guessing there's no metro UI there; just lots of useful enhancements!
