Windows 8 Install

Ok so I quickly threw on the new developer version of Windows 8 onto my IBM x41 Tablet. Now to clarify, tablet as in old school tablet. Ie. Laptop with swivel screen. Not the new slate style tablets, circa your iPad etc.

So Windows 8 installed just fine, detected even the biometric reader on the IBM. This unit has 1.5gb of RAM and W8 still isn’t that zippy. I guess this is reason enough to upgrade.. Grin. The layout seems novel yes, but it’s also much more difficult to get simple tasks done.. add a user.. log off. change the volume. I’m only a hour in… but I’m already missing Windows 7.
Welps so I wonder who else in Ottawa has done and install..
