    Windows 7 64-bit


    Just tried to install SlimDrivers, major fail. Windows 8 is supposed to be beefier on it's own authority on drivers but, I got a feeling they'll blow it somewhere & a 3rd party will be born. Didn't get to try DriverMax, etc.

But that is another matter. so far I really like windows 8 pro. this laptop had windows vista on it which was terrible until i upgraded the ram to 2gb but then was tolerable. windows 8 pro is much faster and seems more stable than vista ever did
    Stormy I couldn't agree more with everything you said.

    It is a well known documented fact that Win8 runs exceptionally well on older hardware.
    Gives new life to old hardware that ran slow with even 7 on it.
    I wish it would run on my old dell p4 but the tool says nope.

    Not exactly how I feel. I think that Metro apps are garbage because they cannot be resized to my liking and they take almost my whole screen. Once you can resize a Metro app top to bottom and side to side...they will become more usable to me.
    I think they are bad because there isn't really any options or settings for them. But I'm fine with just one click to the desktop.

    Microsoft don't focus on 10 years old PCs when they build Windows 8

    Voted yes, and upgraded as soon as it came out, both on my main desktop rig and my new Lenovo laptop.

    Can't say everything's been perfect, but by and large I'm 99% happy.

    I thought it was a very cutesy nice touch when it said "Hi" during the installation...

    Although I think the Start menu has served its purpose well all those years, I prefer the full-screen Start that we have now.

    Yay! My first post here.
