    just got the $40 dollar special up and running


    hi from northern Alberta, Canada, just installed the $40 dollar special, a very un-eventful event, this thing has all the drivers, device manager didn't have any notices what so ever, by the way, i don't know what all the fuss is about, by there not being any start button down in the left corner, I haven't had any problems accessing anything, don't have a touch screen, don't expect to ever get one, but i do think it might be an ok OS.

    Hi catguy, welcome to Eight Forums.
    Glad you like it, agree about the fuss, it's a pretty easy OS to use and I find it performs very well.

    Had an easy time downloading and installing the upgrade , finding it easy to use as well!! I have no reason to think of going back to Win 7 even though i did like that one as well. len
