    Hello, eightforums mates!

    I salute the new Windows. In a couple of days of fiddling I noticed it's working fast, is somehow simpler but the touch of genius is the cross-hardware feature. These for the good part. As for the downsides the most obvious is metro apps crashing after splashscreen. I think MS should have postponed launching metro until all issues would have been solved. Any app from the store that is a game unmistakably crashes (I was cautious enough to install free only games). Plus I had to search for trivial commands like how to shut down the PC, on the web.

    Thanks both, I'll look into those.
    I found a hybrid shutdown button shortcut which is cool. I've put it where the start button was in seven. It's neat and fast.
