I’ll tell you in a couple of years when I’ll be obliged to try it.

Don’t you know that every version of Windows has to sit for a couple of years and get debugged before being taken seriously? :lol:

I have the feeling it will transform my desktop PC into an Android mobile phone, without the ability of making phone calls!

Oh, wait I will have to buy one of those touchscreen monitors. :cry:

Nothing wrong with playing around if you have the time and spare PC box.

I hope you write a small review so we can see your findings from the user’s perspective.

Now if you people will excuse me, I've got to light up the barbie to feed my guests including DT because today I'm 48! :lol:

Catch you people later...

I'm shortly due to renew my business computers, two of them.
An expert has advised me to stay clear of windows 8 and go W 7.

My other half installed the update. So now I don't have a laptop that goes off on one into another dimension. I now don't have the problem of the screen flicking across everytime I accidentally have a finger on the wrong corner of the finger pad. Nor does it flick if the cursor is in a corner of the screen!


Its far better than that stupid 'android' thing it had on it before. I never had a touch screen laptop, and I didn't want a normal laptop to behave like one either!

OK, thanks. I guess it would be too much to ask how stable it is when running computer simulations of nuclear reactors. :?
