    It took about seven hours to install it over the first Windows 8 Preview, but it is working fine.

    OK. WDDM uninstalled and a custom video resolution added to ExtraData.

    <ExtraDataItem name="CustomVideoMode1" value="1366x768x32"/>

    It is working fine now in full screen.

    Yes, it was my eyesight, the darker blue made me to think that the Aero has gone.

    I see they have got rid of the fish. Pity about the rest.

    It is? I thought they only added flash support in IE10 Metro.
    Honestly, I've been looking like hell now for a "what's new" list, but I can't find anything. Anyway, 12min left downloading!
    I installed FF 12 and then went to YouTube and FF said it needed a plug in. Clicked install and it downloaded and installed Flash with no problem. Here is what the Flash Panel shows.

    Chrome comes with its own version of flash so no problem there.

    It took three tries to get into the "Store," but that's probably because so many of us are installing aps. But where is "Sorcerer's Lair"?

    Try installing Windows 8 in Virtualbox. VMware may have to release an update to fix issues with the Windows 8 Release Preview.
