    Hi there
    @SIW2 - I think we've all heard your views "Ad Nauseam" on W8 --fine if you hate it

    However for those of us that have differing views - this is a W8 Forum and we want to make people who DO USE W8 to try and get the best out of it.

    If you hate it so much why don't you disappear into the great BLUE YONDER on to a Forum that you DO LIKE.

    We all know there are features we would like to change or features we miss -- but as this is a W8 FORUM then most of us will try and help users either fix something broken or do the best we can to provide get arounds for the features they miss until (and if) Ms bring those back.

    W7 is remaining around until 2020 if you want those features -- no reason to change immediately -- after all plenty of people (including businesses) stayed with XP for YEARS after W7 was introduced and even now loads of businesses don't have any intention to change to W8.

    Let the people here get on with solving W8 issues and just get back to W7 if that's what you want - or Ubunto etc etc.

    Cheers

    Hi there
    mine runs fine -- I'm in a VM though -- I don't get that bug. I 'm using a 2GB VM for testing -- W7 themes also install fine but of course you get the Ms disclaimer ("Evaluation" version" on the desktop). Using the new Library theme (W7) ==>great one !!

    Will try Office 2010 later and see how customisable the Standard App tiles are.


    I like IE11 as well so far

    Cheers

    Hi Jimbo. Mine is running in a 2GB VM too (VBOX 4.2).

    I want to see what all those under building pages reserve. I hope we have more leaks in the near future !

    Hi there
    @Vrosa can you try and see if you can attach a USB drive / stick to your VM
    I can't get a USB drive to attach to mine -- USB disconnects from Host and I hear the "Ping" as the new hardware is attached to the VM - but I always get an error "USB device connection unsuccessful - driver

    W8 with a "Normal" W8 VM works fine as do earlier OS'es so I suspect there's something in the USB connectivity in this build. - I'm going to test W8 blue on a stand alone laptop to see if it's a VM connectivity problem or a problem with W8 Blue.

    (Host machine W8 x-64 Enterprise - VM - W8 blue x-86). Vm software - vmware workstation release 9.01.

    Cheers

    I attached a HP1005 printer and Asus P5W Wireless adapter successfully. Both were recognized correctly. I'm on VBOX though.

    Hi there
    Thanks for the info --
    Found the error -- I had a USB3 PCI card that wasn't plugged in properly --unplugged and re-booted both the Host and VM - now it's fine again. The USB3 card has my USB3 hub attached -- It's too awkward using the USB2 slots on the computer as this has a large case on the floor and I don't want cables all over the place --the USB 3 4-port hub works fine and is easily accessible on my desk.

    You can see where I had the hardware "error"

    Just installing Office 2010 now to see what the setup is like.

    Thanks again for your info

    Cheers

    I've just installed and activated Office 2013 trial.

    I noticed that the way to rename groups and customize tiles has changed. I liked the new way !

    Hi there
    Windows defender and Office 2010 (32 bit) update just fine on Windows 8 Blue via Windows update. Office 2010 activated OK (It's a VL version anyway).


    I'll try Language packs next.

    So far so good.

    Cheers
