    In the people app you can read connect to twitter. I don't know how to make a post but you can click a tweet in the feed and reply to people.

    Metro apps such as music and video are reporting that my libraries are empty even though in explorer I can clearly see they have things in them. Any ideas?

    Has anyone right clicked on the start preview? Apparently Win+X does the same thing.

    Now we're getting close to something useful! Now i just need a good sized button that I'm able to hit. And a way to run those stupid full-screen apps in a window.

    I find it really funny that Microsoft has been trying to give us better multiscreen support and then fucks it up with this start menu and so on.

    Blargh, my dreadful issue with Windows locking up is back from the developer preview. If I move the cursor against the left border of the screen my OS locks up for 30-45 seconds. Hopefully AMD released a driver for it ASAP.

    For me it went away again like it did for me in the dev preview. Try logging off and logging back on in the mean time. It should cure it.

    Alright cheers. If that doesn't fix it, I have bigger things to worry about like getting used to the lack of a start menu again :).

    I'm having the lock-up issue too. I find it making Windows 8 unusable for me. It seems related to MetroUI although the methods for disabling it don't work in the Consumer Preview.

    The locking up happens to me sometimes but I don't mind it because it is not as worse for me.

    In VirtualBox it's smooth, no problems whatsoever. It's only in dualboot it freezes for me.

    Installed on my laptop using a clean install fine. I figured that the upgrade from previous versions of Windows process would work okay.

    I'm not really sure what's happened.

    So they didn't completely remove windows classic after all.

    I'm having a trouble signing on to my Microsoft account, I enter my email and password, but then it says "An error has occurred and must be fixed on the Microsoft Website. Click here to open" I open it, but then it shows no errors. What gives?

    Quite liking this. Looks clean.
    (meaning I can't find shit in this thing)

    Edited:

    Alright, tried out some of the metro apps. This OS is to OSs what consolized videogames are to videogames. It is sorta fun to use, though.

    Also, the pinball layout is a total ripoff of space cadet.

    The provided drivers and driver fetching functions of Windows have been growing incredibly fast since Vista. It's a good thing too with devices becoming more varied. Thank god most things actually use a standardised communication method now making it even easier.
