    Seems broken in release preview, my screen remains black, tried it a bunch of times on x86 and x86-64, inputs work, machine has clearly booted etc, but from the boot logo on the screen remains pitch black.

    Anyone managed to get it to work on RP? It's a bad solution anyway imo, makes the screen look odd, I wish there was a more clear-cut way to just force metro apps to work, instead of making the screen the wrong resolution.

    I stopped using that, because I don't use metro apps anyway (they are very inferior to desktop alternatives).

    Agreed, except on a tablet, which is what I have.
