Yeah...real man's tech gear can cut your fingers and poke your eye out!
Agreed, the only thing the iPad beats Surface out on is apps, otherwise it's a much more flexible tablet. The fact that it comes with Office 2013 will appeal to almost everyone, especially students/business people.
Strange thing windowshop sent me windows 8 pro ugprade today, but this order was canceled by me and they approved it that its canceled.So why did I still get windows I canceled?And they didnt take any money from my card atleast for now.Does it mean they will just ban serialnumber?Or I just got lucky and got free copy of upgrade?
Just got my cd key for media centre
Just a note to everyone who go their key, once you put the key in and it starts doing its thing, Windows will reboot without any notice when it's finished configuring. You have now been forewarned.
Found another new useful shortcut: Windows + + (Zooms window).
In my resource monitor I keep seeing 1-6% CPU power of System Interrupts. I'm guessing this is some kind of driver mishap since win8 is so new. anyone getting the same thing, or worse?
That browser choosing screen jumps every time i retart windows,how to get rid of it,even I installed firefox from it but it still jumps out.
I actually like the new IE a lot better than Firefox...i feel so...dirty.
I bought win 8 pro yesterday and I got to say I am deeply disappointed! my whole life was stored in that windows 7 start button menu...and now...it's gone....
I haven't got a clue where to pin all the games, other than to the taskbar :/
you can pin them to your desktop or the app viewer thing. or you can download a start button widget
Hey guys I just install "Windows 8 Pro (TechNet Professional)" on one of my laptops. I'm a little torn.. I like it in some ways but hate it in others.... I've also installed the new Visual Studio 2012 Express for win8 as well. I received my Developer License for Windows 8 last night. It looks like I have to apply for a new license each month.. But the good news is I can start developing software for Windows 8. Ok.. back to what I think so far.. It's taking a lot to get use too.. I'm a little bummed about losing my old desktop... and the fact that my new desktop icons are HUGE! and my new Icons (I guess that's what you call them?) are not conformed.. It's almost as if Microsoft has dumbed down the OS.. Oh and add me to the list!
Is there a way you can just get it back to having a start button or just back to how windows 7 looks period?
Im getting used to it but still annoyed.
Im loving windows 8 pro so far...
Also, windows 8 RT isnt bad on my new surface either
Please note:Surface RT does not have a decent media app! :-(
Picked up a Surface today as well, so far it's actually been great!
Yes, install Windows 7
Or start8 or classic shell start menu
And how do you do that?
install the desired exe as specified.
My god if people hate it this much they have to design and make a program to get back the old start menu Microshaft should just patch it and bring it back for good, what a waste of time.
They won`t which is why the START MENU crowd is pissed,Look at it this way if someone was smart enough to make it an App they would make a killing at it.Besides If you use Win8 out of the box,get over the learning curve of no start menu,You kinda find your speed pace for production .Just takes time.
DOS101 you The Dark Knight at Neowin by chance....
i've got win8 pro, kinda wish i didnt. metro is really, really bad for desktop use and multitasking.
Mussels download the free app Windows 8 cheats from the App store.Notice my picture ?That is the NASA Mars App (Which Free too)running be side Firefox on my desktop.
Metro totally kills multitasking. I use metro apps only for browsing and pdf reading lol. Fullscreen stuff ain't for me
