    In order to have a progress bar wouldn't you have to know where it starts and ends

    umm yeah, but we can have like windows 7 rtm on the bottom and predict the milestones such as m1, m2, m3, beta, pre-rc, rc, pre-rtm, rtm, ga.

    I think this is actually a really cool idea. And it will be a lot of fun. John could put it right under The Eight Forums name, and it would look cool if it fit the theme.

    Have it start with 7 RTM, and end with 8 RTM. We can predict dates (I did this on Seven forums)

    I also think, if done right, this could be a neat little feature.

    once windows 8 is out(leaked), it'll be known to all. before that, there'll be n number of romours about it. So you never know know how much truth the progress bar carries!

Does anyone here know how to progress in Pinball F2 in Windows 8/
Man oh man! I love pinball! The last time I ever played pinball on a Windows PC was 2002!! :eek: I love the new pinball game in Windows 8, I'm addicted. But theoretically, I should be able to advance to new and different tables from what I've found about the game on Xbox. Does anyone know how to?
