I feel like the designer that made the new logo didn't spend any time on it whatsoever.
So does anyone know why most themes of bluepoison are grayed out?
Odd, they aren't greyed out for me.
Going to try and use this as a main OS for awhile.
So I've installed W8. I really like the feel.
Now just to fix this Res problem. (I can only get 1600x1024) I need to get my normal rez (1980x1080)
Is the Nvdia driver for GTX 560 ti compatible?
The "fast as shit" boot times are BULLSHIT. Takes just as long to boot as Windows 7.
Okay So I've installed the Nvdia drivers. But it won't allow me to use my normal screen rez.
Are there any fixes?
Can you not set it manually through the nvidia control panel?
I can see it manually. But the problem is that when I select 1980x1080 it just reverts to 1680x1024 or whatever res it was before I selected 1980x1080.
Another thing to add, is that it at first wasn't on the list of selectable res. I had to add it to the list via customize.
Whoops, Yeah 1920x1080
This whole time I've been saying 1980 to everyone.
On a somewhat different note, I really hope they update Windows Media Center to be a metro application. I just realized how stupid it will be if I click on WMC from the start menu, have it go to the desktop, then have it open fullscreen.
You're counting the bootloader timeout? You are aware that's been in Windows for years, it's optional to dual boot in the first place, if 8 really is the only OS installed you don't see the bootloader, you can skip it by clicking an OS name, you can change the timeout period.
Also it's not true at all. Just because you have a fucked up installation doesn't mean everyone else does.
8: 25.8 (16sec power on to POST)
7: 43.4 (16sec power on to POST)
Windows 8 Developer Preview's expiration date has been extended another year: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2671501
is it worth installing as main OS? :o
I'd say it is. Once I fix this damn res problem!
Going on with Windows Media Center - I got bored after the post and made a mockup.
Microsoft - if you're listening, PLEASE do this. Don't half ass Media Center. I don't care how many people don't use it. I do.
I doubt they're going to update media center. Videos, Photos, and Music apps take its place.
I could be wrong, but it just seems to me it'd be rather redundant. Not to mention how very little media center is actually used and with stuff like Netflix and Hulu Plus the TV recording in Windows will continue to decline from what is already a tiny percentage.
Who knows. We'll see in the months to come.
I think I know exactly what the new logo needs.
Hm... I think I actually did significantly improve it.
If Media Center is going Metro then just make it the WMP Metro app.
I don't think it's a good idea to kill one of the most recognizable logos in the world.
I know they REALLY like Metro, but Windows logo is kind of like the diskette logo as the save icon - everyone knows what it means.
Though they did do this once before with Windows XP, and I'm sure people reacted the same way, so I hope they know what they're doing.
Panda, do you have any idea why there was a Windows Update released to extend the evaluation period of the Windows 8 Developer Preview?
The update in question is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2671501
It postpones the evaluation expiration date to January 15, 2013. Do you think this Might be a red-flag for a postponed beta? or just longer grace period for users to test the Developer Preview for some reason?
Apparently Vista's support got extended too from 2012 to 2017. And 7 from 2015 to 2020.
