    Windows 7 x64 Home Premium / Commodore OS Vision / Windows 8 Release preview


    Using windows 8 turns more interesting, when you imagine the start menua as your 2nd desktop, re organise it, don't pack all of the programs in to end of the menu, pin and unpin,

    wonder when the Celsius degrees finds their way to the weather app

    The Beta will be released in February.

    The only issue I have with W8 so far is that it's not possible (or I haven't found a mechanism yet to do this) of sharing a Printer with other computers even though the printer works fine on the W8 machine (there's no specific Printer sharing facility where you can allocate and name the shared printer).

    Jimbo? Just go to the other machine, Add New Printer, Search, then choose it. It will appear in the list of available printers.

    This is for people who play with their machines instead of doing some useful work
