Is anyone tinkering with Win 8? I just downloaded the 64 bit version and put it on this machine:
Intel 2180 cpu (2 gigs)
2 gigs of ram
60 gig IDE Maxtor hard drive
Asus P5G41-M LE/CSM motherboard
Radeon HD 4870 video card
The score on this machine will make you puke, so I wont post it
In spite of the low score the machine cooks along just fine. It boots up promptly and shuts down even faster.
I have been using win7 drivers in place of win 8 drivers...there ain't any...yet
....and so far the pc didn't puke them up...yet.
The very first thing I did was get rid of that ridiculous Metro crap and got back the normal winders interface.
I used this little app to do it:http://altfthis.com/2011/09/get-rid-of- ... ro-ui-app/
Any thoughts on the operating system so far...like it, hate it...don't know yet
So far it looks and feels like win 7 to me, uses the drivers as well, and I see no compelling reason to buy it so far. Metro sux as far as I am concerned, that is why I killed it. I am a gamer and don't need touch screen crap...don't have a touch screen anyway.
