Windows "We are pleased to be releasing a set of improvements to Windows 8 in broad areas of performance, power management and battery efficiency, media playback, and compatibility. These improvements are available starting today via Windows Update. We wanted to briefly talk about our improvements to the engineering system and in particular the speed at which we were able to deliver these updates to you." Good stuff. They're also updating the core Metro applications to make them less useless.

Just for some version info. Virtualbox 4.2 added real support for Windows 8 and Server 2012, before that it was a dog and almost unusable.

Yes, that would explain it. I was pre-4.2 the first time.

It was so slow that I couldn't figure out how to get back to the Metro stuff from classic, although I always did manage it after a while I never knew how I did it. Now it turns out any corner is "hot", but it was so slow that this wasn't clear to me.
