WEI Performance Question

    Win 8 is pretty much Win 7 in sheeps clothing but I and many others find it far faster! So they must have tweaked the underlying code which may make it different enough from Win 7 to cause problems?

    Well it has been said that if your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough! I substitute perseverance for toughness {:-))! The disk just this second finished burning after my machinations. I will now see if it will boot and work! Finger's crossed. Hope I get that 2nd drive soon....

    I know it seems pretty fast! And it is certainly causing some headaches. But the speed is nice! Worth the effort IMHO!

    For the speed of Win8 keep your fingers crossed. The Win7 Beta was also a lot faster than the final product. I think there is a difference between a Beta test system and a fully loaded work system. But I am sure we will pick up some more performance. Where else would the prograss be.

    I'd have thought a beta was loaded with debug code and was still to be fine-tuned so would be slower than retail?

    Nah, those traces are there all the time. Look into Event Viewer of Windows 7 and you will see all the stuff that is being traced.
