    I'm back w/8


    I just got the new release of 8 today....so I'm back using windows 8. I must confess to liking it much better this time around. They made it considerably better for the desktop user. I find myself flowing threw it much better. Although I'm having a time with my printer still. HP needs to release some generic drivers for windows 8...still waiting.

    Thanks Brink...and I must say I'm really having a go at it this time....I have my metro customized. Hell, I didn't know I could do that in the CP version....and found some nice short cuts as well to move around in 8. So far I'm really digging this OS.

    Welcome back. Agree with easy to use, however, where are my usual Windows OS games?

    yeah I cant find them either, but really didn't use them anyway. I did manage to get Media Center on thanks to Brinks tutorial.
