So, we’ll be getting our hands on the Windows 8 Release Preview in the first week of June. I’m interested in what they’ve done to improve the Metro experience for boring old mouse and keyboard users, and if they’ve managed to include applications that work (as opposed to buggy preview applications).
Windows 8 Release Preview to land first week of June
2012-04-24 Windows 11 Comments
…I have decided to treat myself to a new SSD when 8 is finally released. But I have been using W8 since the CP was released and while it does have several annoying problems (not talking about UI likes or dislikes, talking about hanging that seems to derive from some sort of I/O conflict, for example) that recur, it has been a pleasure to use.
I tried both previews released thus far and neither would boot on my laptop (which runs Win7 without any problems). If the release preview doesn’t boot either it’s a sure thing I won’t be upgrading.
Been trying out 8CP(quick analysis on software for work), seems too much change for the sake of change, not better for the actual consumer. I’ve bought my last Windows. Between Ubuntu, Mint and Android, I’ve seen no reason to ever go to 8.
