Hey everyone :) I'm new here, and have already found these forums quite helpful.

I'm trying to learn Win 8 in preparation for getting my new Windows Slate in a couple of weeks.

Heya all. I've occasionally peeked here a few times before today and have been impressed with the community and generally engaging Windows 8 discussion here, so I figured I'd add myself to the mix. For the record, I stuck with Vista until the Developer Preview was released, purely because unlike a lot of people, I managed to beat Vista into submission and it worked well enough that Win7 was a moot point. So long as Windows never again contains the abomination known as SuperFetch, all will be well... :p

Hey guys, what's up?
Well this is Abhishek (AbhishekS from SevenForums). With Windows 8's release date approaching, I guess I'll soon migrate from SevenForums to here.

Hoping to have a nice stay here too. :)
