Glad to see some Windows 8 users here. @Syndrome, that looks pretty much like Windows 7 lol. How is Start8? I tried it out and didn't find it was worth $5. But Metro doesn't bother me much anyway.

Not using Start8. I'm using StartisBack. Which only costs $1 if you purchase 5 keys. Or you can do 2 keys for $3. I think its great though, everything I had with windows 7, except its much faster now. And I'm using an Ivy Bridge so when I use Metro to watch Netflix I'm using 35% less watts, which saves me money.

Never thought of it that way. Always good to save money !

I think, after looking at "StartisBack", I'm going to get it for my comp. StartMenu8 is good for freeware, but this one your using seems like it's more refined.

Yeah from all of the ones I have looked at it seems to work the best. And for the price its even harder to beat. I've already put windows 8 on four different PC's since yesterday, and more to come.

I saw it at the theater, and my DVD will be here in a couple of days. I loved it.

I agree. I recently switched to Xubuntu and I totally love it!



(Removed my second monitor from the screenshot because it only shows the wallpaper)
