    You're quite welcome.

    I know there are leaked versions, but I wouldn't know where to find a good one. I'm sure someone else will help you in that area if that's what you want to do. I see you're a gamer so you must be somewhat an advanced user. I'm sure you know that one must be careful with these versions.

    If it were me I'd keep it simple, download the RP ISO, fresh install that to try it out. The public release is just a few weeks away (not a month).

    Whatever you decide good luck to you.

    Windows 8.1 'Ultimate' RTM 64 bit (Pro/WMC).


    I'm running the leaked RTM (64-bit) as a standalone install, and have had very few issues.

    The main one being that IE11 is NOT ready for prime-time.

    The rest of the OS is very nice, and the new boot selection and going to All Apps instead of the Start screen is a winner.

    I'll agree with that. While it's nice and fast, there are some sites it doesn't play nice with. Nothing back breaking for me, but annoyances nonetheless.

    Watch out for sleep issues. I found that I needed to change the media settings to allow sleep in advanced power settings:

    If by that you mean many web sites seem to have problems, this is problems with those websites. They have not been updated to expect IE11 as a possible browser.

    You can work around this for most sites by pressing F12, then going to the Emulation tab on the left, and then changing the User Agent String to IE10. That will work for most sites, but some may also require you to change the document type as well. Once IE11 is officially released, those sites ill get updated to support IE11 and this problem should eventually go away.

    This is not a problem with IE11, and it's not that it's not "ready for prime time", it's that developers are lazy and they write code like "If the browser version is 10, do this cool new thing" and forgetting that there may be a version 11, which won't get that feature anymore.
