It's amazing how our minds can read a miss-spelled word and still get the intended meaning.
You said "Per-beta" and I know you meant "Pre-Beta", but I still understood what you were saying. It's amazing!
So if we're now in Pre-Beta, does that mean we're in "Alpha" ?
I just had to re-download Win-8 from MS, again yesterday, because I guess I gave away my last DVD made from my first download. And the downloaded .ISO file seems to have evaporated. Is that what they call vaporware? lol
I still have the same 8102 version I had before. It did seem to set up a little different than my first version, but I finally got it anyway.
It didn't pick up my Epson Workforce 500 printer, and I had to load the drivers for that. Different, but no big deal.
It crashed repeatedly till I loaded the drivers for my SATA III controller card. It surprised me no end, that it even installed without the controller card drivers. Now it seems pretty stable, and FAST!
It's way faster than XP run on a SATA II, 1TB drive.
If MS just works on the Boot & Run speed and forgets about the glitz and glitter, they will have a product that will really shine in the business world. Let the G&G fanatics download what they want.
Personally, I like the simplicity of a good ol' DOS menu screen. No G&G, just right to the point.
Happy Veterans Day
