    I'm waiting for the free one for which hopefully I will receive a key and instructions through e-mail. If you look away for a moment they are ready to steal your wallet.

    Yes, it still wasn't there. Any idea about the "Metro" apps too? I click on one it opens full screen then snaps back and goes back to the start screen :confused:

    Yes except for IE metro app, that stays full screen though it does not open so it's just the big blue tile with the "e" button in the middle and no address bar etc. The other apps open full screen though only as the tile before quickly snapping me back to home/start screen whatever the fuck it's called :banghead:

    Maybe try uninstalling Start8, reboot, and see how things are? Sounds like there may have been an installation issue.

    I now have Start8 linked to my left side Win key and Metro linked to my right side Win key...

    Still learning, a bit confused, but many little tweaks...

    Should we make a Win 8 FAQ thread, without any controvesy, only real material? Moderators?

    Uninstalled it a couple of reboots ago, also created a standard user account as I read about similar issues upgrading from an Win7 admin account and no go, starting to really fuck me off now truth be told.

    He should. I just gave him some hard earned cash today. Wonder if he's browsing the app store right now on his shinny new Surface looking for some "mature" games and apps...

    I can't get over how gorgeous that tablet looks. I can see why Steven Sinofsky and team are so proud of it. There's a 30 day return policy on them, makes it damn tempting to try it out for 30 days.

    I smell success. Windows RT is a winner. At last Microsoft can pose a real threat in the mobile business to Apple and Android. Apart from the app store which I'm sure will get bigger, Surface is in so many ways more useful than an iPad. This is a productivity tool, the iPad is a gadget.
