    W8 Installed & Running

    For Info:

    I just completed the clean install of W8 Pro and had no problems. From start to finish it took 1 hour and about 1/2 hour to install updates (10). One thing I noticed after doing updates is that the restart runs slower than W7. One other item is Hotmail is not included on the top of the MSN homepage. It appears to run much faster than W7 for all other applications

    Update to my post

    I found the Hotmail & MY MSN. You need to go to the bottom of the W8 Homepage and select CLASSIC HOMEPAGE

    Windows 8

    On October 26th, I purchased a final copy of Windows 8 Pro for $69.

    I have an Intel duo-core laptop which was running XP Professional previously.

    Installation flawless and running MUCH faster than XP. I believe that Microsoft did lots of debugging from the beta versions.

    Startups are 20 seconds at cold boot!
