    Suggestion to Mods if they have time - Software on W8

    Hi all
    suggestion to the mods if they have time

    For Working and Not working software could we have something like an EXCEL Spreadsheet

    Two worksheets in the workbook 1) W8 X-64, 2) W8 x-86

    Main columns would be

    1) Software and release
    2) Link to web site
    3) Working X or blank
    4) Not Working X or Blank

    5) Working but not 100%

    6) Remarks column such as installation techniques or other fix to get software to work.

    The current stickied thread of working / not working software is difficult to follow - especially if the number of threads is large.

    People could post working / not working software which could be attached to a spreadsheet that was publicly available for viewing.

    This would be a great feature for people wanting to know if a product worked or not.

    In the keynote MSFT said all programs that run on Windows 7 will run on Windows 8, so it seems a little pointless.

    I agree. Besides which, it would also assume that everyone has MS Excel (or an open-source equivalent that can read/write MS Excel files) installed (most people do, although not everyone). In addition to this, for every edit made to the spreadsheet, an extra attachment will be made, using up space on the server that could be used elsewhere. The method we currently use is the simplest, as all you need is an OS with a browser and an internet connection.
