    Mickey, it simply means you have either smoked too much or too little...

    what does it all mean?
    If I told you what mine meant i would have to kill you.

    It's great to see all of you again and some new people too.

    I don't know what to think about Windows 8 yet. Looks fairly good.....

    Hi, I'm Brian and new here. I'm the fool using Win 8 as his main OS on a live system! Hope to pick up a lot of knowledge here and hopefully contribute too. I used to run The Vistaforum back in the day so hope this Forum is as successful and involving. This time round I'm just another bod though. No expertise in Win 8 as yet but a lot of experience generally and am happy to search for answers for those who don't have the time.

    Actually, Brian, you can get away with using the 8 Preview as your main OS. Most downloads that you need can be found for free on the web. And 8 is faster than 7, at least on my computer.

    Welcome to Eight Forums Brian, always glad to get people willing to help.

    I'm dual booting with Win7, but use Win8 almost all the time, it's been stable for me.

    Thanks for the welcome! I had my first crash last night. The system just froze. I've not investigated yet but will look at event viewer for clues. Interestingly having to power-off to reboot, Win 8 then booted without the usual "windows closed unexpectedly do you want safe mode?" message.

    My crash seemed due to:

    Faulting application name: Settings.exe, version: 2010.1.0.95, time stamp: 0x4c4d4f24
    Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.2.8250.0, time stamp: 0x4f3f36c6
    Exception code: 0xc0000005

    Worryingly, settings.exe is sometimes identified with a Trojan. I'll see if TrendMicro, my antivurs, knows anything..

To throw this out there, why not an official Eight Forums app for Windows 8? It seems logical. That is all...
