    Storage is still pretty limited Cic. We will need to hang on for another couple of years (if we can.)

    Computers are like Air Conditioners, they stop working when you open Windows.

    Let's not bring jesus into it - there's enough chances for digital chicanery without invisible mentors being summoned. (Probably with a Madras accent these days.)

    I've just used the Win 8 Promotion Code to upgrade my Win 7 and install Win 8 on my SSD.

    I must say,, without the start menu its not that bad.

    Yeah I felt the same, it's not that big of a change coz I *never* see the start launcher screen thingy... Then again I was also able to install Linux and quite happily use that too, coz most things I do these days are in the browser. I should really try Chromium OS again
    I mostly do Bitcoin & DigiByte things these days, feel free to say hi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/dgb_chilling

    I did a clean install of Windows 8 in the prerelease version on an SSD (topic in a previous post). I installed it again once the OEM version was available. I don't have a touch screen on my desk top computer, and do not feel compelled to use one after months of use. I feel navigation around Windows 8 works very well with short cut keys, and you don't need to know that many. I don't feel that there is a steep learning curve with this operating system, and prefer the layout and speed over Windows 7. Installation was the most hassle free of any Windows operating system. Everything just worked. I did not need to install any motherboard or video card drivers, and all the components were new. I have built all my computers since my first 40 MHz 386 DX. The applications available are a bonus on top of everything else.

    You may find that you would still need to \ should install updated drivers for your video card at least.
