My System Specs

Default

I'm trying Windows 8 as a weekend fun trip (colour me crazy) and I have had it on the folding rig for a week. Its tough to get used to thats for sure.

One thing that amazed me (still not a reason to stay with Win 8 though) is that it installed my wireless printer automagically once I joined the wireless network. Only one device on my recently new laptop did not get a good driver (my USB 3.0 controller).

I doubt I will be sticking with this for long. Right now I find myself creating all my old shortcuts and such in the Desktop mode (I even have a shortcut to the old Start Menu folder in my profile). Boot and shutdown times good, and the OS is pretty snappy, but Metro is slowing me down, and I believe it will continue to do so.
