    I mean, the performance is far below average, but in 7, it was even worse.
    Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    Glad that 8 works on that GPU. That Win7 problem is a bit weird: it seems like it uses more 'gpu power' than Win8. Don't know if it was a driver problem or not but if Win8 graphics work better than Win7 on a older, possible defect gpu then I might also switch to 8 on my laptop. I also have an overheated GPU (in a Acer Aspire 7720...) that I got running again and it's currently running well on Vista (also).
    I'm not sure if its a problem with the drivers... Possibly.
    The thing is, Vista and 7 have the same GPU drivers, 8 has its own. On Vista everything is fine, on 7 it's like when the driver crashes in XP and reverts everything back to 16bit color or something, except Aero still works, and all the animations are still there. It just looks 16bit and decaying lol
    8, like Vista, totally has no problems like that, it's just 7 that trips the hell out xD

    I really enjoyed the new "flatter" aero glass seen in the release preview. If I can't hack aero back in[along with desktop gadgets] then I might just go back to windows 7 with a windows 8 theme.

    Yes it was a nice theme, a lighter aero. But it seems to be just a transition to the non-transparent version.

    Too bad we need hacks to get this in Win7.
