late, but its a very nice idea for a desktop interface.
Microsoft couldn't pull that off if they tried, it would still have win9x era icons splurged everywhere.
MS unfortunately won't be revamping the desktop UI anytime soon since they think people will prefer Metro over it.
I was actually looking for that image couldn't find it though
maybe it was a different one but it got those solid colors
I don't think I got a clear answer on this;
Is it worth it to wait for a couple months in college to by a Win8 laptop? Or is it ok to buy a Win7 one and upgrade?
Also, does anyone have any ideas on how Skydrive will be integrated into Win8? I just signed up for an account and love it, but will they continue support or phase it out for another try?
The best way to decide is to try it out via dual boot or something, if you like 8 then maybe you should get it, otherwise stick with 7.
It ain't metro, but damn I like that.
I've been using Win8 since the beta and I'm not sure if it's just the way I'm set up, but I've had hardly any problems at all. I had one app issue where solitaire refused to run but reinstalling it fixed it, no issues with it now.
One App issue,
No program issues,
No compatibility issues.
Only real problem I've had was two Bsods back to back, but one of my sata power connectors was failing, which I fixed. That's it.
One thing I'd like to see however is maybe a windows key+Boss key combo that brings up the shutdown/restart/sleep options at the very least, if Ms decides "Easy shutdown options are a waste of time coding and adding."
To me it seems like a brilliant interface for an ebook reader.
I hate all the flat, boring looking shit. Calling it "modern" is bullshit, it's just making Windows look dumbed-down. Aero is sexy in Win 8 Dev preview. Deal with it.
Aero makes sense for the name.
Steam wallet needs to be aligned to where the inbox is, part from that it looks neato
I really hope they fix all the dual screening stuff.
I want to be able to use metro stuff on both screens at a time and using all the corner shortcuts while DSing is frustrating as fuck.
I wonder if Valve would consider making a Metro version of steam.
Besides, most are gonna either use XBL or the windows store alone so
If Windows would design something that looks like GNOME 2 / KDE desktop environment and then implement it into Windows 8, then I'd never remove it.
But yeah, these are just dreams on windows...without any tweaks. *barfs*
sometimes if I'm using the music app, the music volume lowers a bit if I'm going back to desk, sometimes it doesn't. Is there a specific reason for that?
