    This Is It....


    Tomorrow is the Big Day. I will be buying Win 8 Pro and doing a clean install.

    I'm going to miss the W8RP eye-candy, but someone will work out how to put it back.

    I will be offline for a few daze, so can I take this opportuniy to wish you all a great New Year?

    Back with Windows 8 in 2013!!!!!!!!!!

    Wenda.

    Yes, That's pretty much it.

    We can only hope the public reject this thing and MS get the message.

    If it does ok - ( and it might because the public are not supposed to see what it is about - and because there are a few even on this forum who haven't a clue and/or keep making disingenuous posts ) - then MS will keep pushing down this unpleasant route.

    If you hate Windows 8 that bad, stop coming on this forum and go back to the Seven Forums.

    Doing a clean install is a good way to bypass some of the gotchas. Upgrade installs seem to almost always have issues. If that's your only PC you may want to hunt up drivers for Windows 8 and have them on hand before you start. Especially for your NIC or Wireless card. It sucks when you can't get online to get the driver you need to get online.
