    Windows 8.1 Pro x64

    First I installed CP as a dual boot OS and then after playing with it last night decided to delete the partition and install as my main OS. I ran an upgrade install over Win 7 Ultimate x64 and am extremely happy with the upgrade. Everything went smoothly and the only two things I ended up having to do is to delete MS Security Essentials and when upgrade completed change Windows Mail files. And voila all is well. I have not lost a single application or device.

    Unfortunately I made a typo when I entered my live id info and could not figure out how to fix it but have now done so. The secret is going to settings > more pc settings and then change user account info from there.

    I think I can safely say I am won over by Windows Eight after my initial dubiousness.

    No luck on my end.

    Extremely unresponsive when trying to install a driver from the disk and in general.

    When trying to connect to the internet I get a BSOD (3 times in a row):


    And what's a fish got to do with Windows?

    Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition

    I'm enjoying it. I first installed it on an older laptop and have been getting great performance for everyday tasks, The Metro UI took a couple of hours to adjust to but once I found where everything was it has started to grow on me.

    Erm, that feature was also in Win7.

    I must say I am in love with Win 8 and I will mostly use it as my main OS from now. But lots of games crashes instant to desktop when I try to start them though...
    But haven't had any problems with "normal" programs
