Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums

    Bonjour guys/gals.

    Been around for quite some time but not had reason to post in a long time as I didn't have any form of Windows 8 since an early beta.
    Well I just installed 8.1 Preview on an old SSD I had to give it a good testing out. Dare I say it, I actually quite like it so far, I have it set to boot straight to desktop, just been installing a few things, got some gadgets back to make it a little more familiar etc.

    I have one question, maybe I should ask this elsewhere in the forum, but obviously with Windows 7 the first thing I would do after a clean install would be to install all the motherboard drivers, well I went straight to device manager after installing 8.1 and it appears everything is all installed. Is it wise to install all the motherboard drivers anyway? I assume these will be better than the ones Windows provides?

    Cheers

    Paul.

    Thanks bud Really this is the wrong place to ask that kind of question. But previous experience tells me that I should install all the motherboard drivers so I am gonna go ahead and do so.

    Windows 8


    Thanks Jane and vrosa for the welcome. I found eightforums and joined 5 minutes ago. No longer a power user since retirement over a year ago. I quit my LE job in 1980 to sell RS Model II full time. So I come from $15,000 for single user system with 0 hard drive but with 3 8-inch floppy drives, capable of handling one task poorly. Got into my own business for next 6 years (Vector Graphics at first). For 20 years beginning in '92, at a university, I recommended and purchased for departments everything from office furniture to Dells and Macs.
    Bought an Asus laptop last week. Hey! I really like Windows 8! Gave away my mid-2012 MBP. Desktop is Vista (which I also like).
    Hope to learn a little every day from you experts about Microsoft's latest OS implementations.

    Yep welcome Hickory I have mine set up now with the 7 style start desktop and can switch between the panels and it so easily. The panels I must admit I don't like the clutter alright for apps I suppose - I just like the speed and free apps.
    In a way a bit like having a dual boot LOL!!

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