The reg tweak to disable Metro in Developer does not work (different reg key?) in Customer Preveiw. If any one should happen across a tweak please post.

How could it change the place where windows tries to look for your mouse to activate the options menu?
the one with settings, search, share and devices? because it's in a hard place in between of my two monitors.
Download Windows 8 Consumer Preview
Windows 8 Consumer Preview Setup will check to see if your PC can run Windows 8 Consumer Preview and select the right download. Setup also features a compatibility report and upgrade assistance. Built-in tools for creating an ISO or bootable flash drive are available for some previous versions of Windows (excluding Windows XP and earlier). You can find system requirements and additional information in the FAQ and in the links on this page.
Note before you download: Windows 8 Consumer Preview is prerelease software that may be substantially modified before it’s commercially released. Microsoft makes no warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information provided here. Some product features and functionality may require additional hardware or software. If you decide to go back to your previous operating system, you'll need to reinstall it from the recovery or installation media that came with your PC.
Initial USB install took about 10 - 12 mins on to a spinner drive not counting setup and mouse froze in lower right corner of start menu where the new small zoom button is but since installing updates and graphics drivers problem has gone away. Also the weather app is more detailed with graphs and maps.
Btw, 2 hours in and I already changed too much. (updates, softwares, group policies)
And boom! BSOD
Though it was an opprtunity to test Windows 8 self-restore. Lost all installs =/
Also they added new option for AppLocker: Packgaed app rules. Apparently it is for metro apps.
