    Has anyone tried Windows 8 on a desktop yet?

    I just played around with windows 8 on my friend's new laptop this past weekend, and it looks like Windows 8 is the best thing to happen to Linux since Vista... I'm puzzled why Microsoft would be pushing a tablet OS onto large screen devices.

    I'm wondering if anyone has tried it on a multi-monitor desktop yet? Is it as bad as I think it's going to be? I have 4 monitors so I'm wondering if I'm going to have to hang onto Windows 7 for quite a few years. It was frustratingly brutal to navigate even just on one 17" laptop screen, especially for someone like me who learned computers on Windows NT and 95. All of the "back doors" and shortcuts, even terminology, has been completely changed (or erased!).

    As of 9/17, I will be away for a few days due to medical reasons. Should be back up soon. Please refer to a GM or other mods in whatever particular section you need help with.

    Running 4 monitors? Huge desk and kinda overkill.

    Win 8 has native multi monitor support, and I'm running it with Win 8. Just disable UAC/Metro and get Start8 and it's like how Windows 8 should have been.

    I use all 4 monitors frequently. I am a scientist and do a lot of work from home. When I'm gaming I enable Xfire and it automatically brings it down to 2 monitors. I find no issues with multiple monitors for windows 7; AMD's catalyst center has had some huge improvements over the last couple years regarding that.

    I was playing around with Pokki; thanks for the start8 lead. That looks like a much better fix for the start button.

    Got it downloaded, I'm scared about installing it since I don't know if it's replacing Windows 7 or whatever

    It looks good, but I wouldn't install it because most of the games are still not compatible with Win 8.
    Want to get giftcards, electronics, and much more ..for FREE?


    P2S is the way to go. It offers countless amount of items at cheap rates. It has everything from giftcards to paypal money.

    To get started...

    Go to any web-browsing software, and type in "https://w w w. p o i n t s 2 s h o p . c o m ? r e f =uin1392610755" without the quotes and spaces. Hit Enter. Register and verify your account by going into your e-mail.

    At the top, go to "Profile" and Edit your account info and demographics (You will get pts for this). Then, go to Earn Points, and click on any offer you'd like and do those. You will get points. Once you have enough points, scroll over to "Spend Points" at the top and click on whatever category you would like, then buy the item.

    Have fun!

    lolwut that doesn't make any sense.




    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    Not horrible, and not made for only tablets, but better suited when implemented on those devices in comparison to desktops.

    Linux got a huge boost in activity when people who hate macs still wanted a good OS, and the only "new" option was Vista. I'm suggesting the same thing is going to happen, since it seems that W8 is a fail for a desktop OS.

    This is how I feel about it, just trying to have an open mind before deciding to skip it.
