    Windows Eight


    I use it to be cool and freak people out. :P I say it's a magical vortex into another world. Well when they're drunk they'll believe anything about Windows 8. I told them Captain Janeway was using it light years ahead of us

    Windows 8.1 'Ultimate' RTM 64 bit (Pro/WMC).


    I avoided the Start Screen like the proverbial plague on the DP and CP, and disliked it intensely. Once I got the Enterprise RTM, I started to actually use it and have a bit of a play around. Then had to do it all again when I bought the retail version. :-(

    I now have it nicely customised, and set up so that it works for me.

    There are several screenshots in this thread.....

    I hated Windows 8 CP (never used DP), but over months and months and months i slowly liked it!

    As a user of W8 DP, CP, and RP, and Retail, I had an up and down journey with the start screen. Right now, I'm at a point where I enjoy the Start Screen. It has some nice features.

    Yeah! Same boat here, from Windows 8 DP, CP, RP, RTM leak, and official RTM, Windows 8 has been nothing more but a pretty great journey of learning new things and taking advantage of new things that work real well.

    I use the start screen all the time.. its serves its purpose, and I don't even have a touch screen. As soon you use w8 on touch, in makes perfect sense.. for media consumption of course.

    here is mine
