    Hello everyone Nice to see some familiar names and some new ones too. Took the plunge and installed Windows 8 out of sheer boredom... and now I'm here. Wasn't expecting so much hate over here!

    Welcome to Eight Forums electrotune1200. Not so much hate as disappointment

    Welcome to all the new members that have joined. OK I've been a member here for ages but haven't been here that much but that's about to change, should have my new laptop at the end of the week complete with Windows 8, I believe it's the Home Version but not sure what bit version it is, it's an Asus.

    See you all a bit more when it's here and I'm trying to sort out what to do, I never bothered with the beta.

    Welcome electrotune 1200. Good to have you!

    I wasn't a member at 7F. Perhaps a little more "heated" discussions here?

    Hi there! Got myself a (legal, really!) copy of Windows 8 now it's dirt cheap.
    Quick and stable so far. Not disappointed. Tried some beta's and I figured they weren't all that brilliant.
    Took some more time to get used to Windows 8 now I actually paid for it and it seems Windows has broken it's awful tradition of good windows/bad windows (ME: Bad, XP: goood, Vista: Baaaad, 7: Gooood, 8....).

    Still there's a lot that doesn't seem to work quite right, especially when it comes to the apps.
    I can't, for instance, get my pop e-mail to work (it does work on Outlook.com) and I have some difficulties with several parts of the GUI that I reckon can be adjusted to my liking, but I can't seem to find out how.

    Anhow, in my daily life I run a dutch forum about vintage analog audio (tapdecks, vinyl etc.), I've got a cat and a beautiful girlfriend. So all is well .

    When it comes to computer knowledge I reckon I'm 'above average'. I help people out regularly with their computers, I don't mind building one and installing an OS with proper drivers isn't a problem either. I'm now working on a little project where I try to turn an apple eMac into a desktop PC. Before anyone gets me wrong; I want a Mac so I can help out other Mac users. I'm really very much a Windows person myself. Macs make me agressive in pretty much every way.

    I hope you're willing to help me out and I sure hope I can help you guys out when I get to know the OS myself.

    Thanks in advance!

    Stijn.

    Welcome to EightForums, stijnkraft. It's good to have you!

    So far as I know, pop accounts don't work in 8. I believe the option comes up, but it's really not an option. I don't understand why in the world they did it that way.

    Thanks!

    As far as I'm informed you can set up a pop account through Outlook.com
    I got outlook.com to cooperate with my pop address (which is an @analogaudio.nl address, so nothing 'usual') but somehow I can't get Windows mail to syncronize with outlook.com.
    I'll open a topic for that asap, it's not one of my biggest worries right now as I installed Office 2010 with outlook, which works just fine

    Looking forward to seeing more of you, Joan. I'm excited for you with a new lappy! Good for you! The best of luck with it.
