    Aero isn't gone. You have to run Windows experience Index and then you will get aero. See, I have Aero:

    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center


    32 bit version works well as a Windows To Go on a 16 GB Sandisk Cruzer on an Intel Atom N450 Packard Bell dot s netbook with 2 GB RAM.

    Installation was very slow, mostly taken up with installing all the apps I will never use (netbook screen resolution too low).

    Unlike the CP, the RC recognizes the Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.0) and loads the drivers. Also unlike the CP, the SD cardreader is not recognized!

    Aero looks just fine. No speed issues. It seems 7-zip can no longer open the windows 8 install.wim

    Some glitches with screen redraw in this edit window as I scroll down, it leaves horizontal lines.

    Sound, internet speed and video streaming brilliant.

    So yes, I'm happy with it.

    See how it goes

    Windows 8 RP x64


    Love it. Just deleted my Windows 8 Consumer Preview partitions, installed the RP and have been enjoying ever since earlier this morning.

    I like the performance the visual changes for the user-interface has been bad. The scroll bar has managed to look worse than before and the mouse cursor and loading animation are just blah. The performance feels even better so I that I do like it and if they can keep making the performance better they will have a solid performing product. The design and function is where they have to focus more on though.
