    Hello All

    I'm wondering who else is running Windows 8.

    what are you noticing,
    The OS wide Spell check is very nice.

    It is much different than Windows 7.

    I just installed Desktop Manager, had to go download .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 to get it to install

    The boot times of Windows 8 is MUCH faster than Windows 7, not sure I like Metro Style, and the switching between settings really needs one to get used to using mouse gestures,

    it is a 4GB download, and takes up 20GB of hard drive space to install, I'm giving it 50GB for playing

    I tried downloading it at a the time it was released and with the amount of people also downloading it the download would stall and shut down. I've got it downloaded now and am going to put it on a second laptop I have, although I have created a virtual machine on my main computer and might try it on that.

    the 32bit version wouldn't boot in my virtualbox, and I can't find my flash drive to install it on a third partition to test it

    I have to say I am NOT a big fan right now, I think if I was using it on a touchscreen device I would like it better, but I have never liked mouse gestures, and NEEDING them to go from desktop to Metro frustrating, and leaving menu's just isn't intuitive

    Has anyone been able to get synaptics touchpad drivers to work?
    Or have an alternative?

    Doubt it would even work on the netbook. I'll stick to linux mint 11 instead.

    I'm sure it would run the 32 bit ok.
