    Missing in action


    Whatever happened to:

    1) Hybrid boot

    2) Portable workspace

    3) Modern pdf reader

    We had experienced these features in the pre-WDP builds.

    Seems quite silly to spend time over WDP when for all you know the beta will be vastly different.

    Dunno what happened to what you mentioned. I'm sure they're there somewhere.

    However, Bill, as to the quote I presented, well, at least we get a better look at Metro this time around.

    I don't feel silly even though I really am (it's not testing the DP that makes me so, I've always been that way).

    We might see these features in the beta. This WDP seems to be neither here nor there. But maybe the whole idea was to get people (like Mike ) excited about Metro.
