do you use windows 8 developer preview as your primary os?
I have this as single and primary OS
nope, and i probably wont for at least a month after release, ill let you guys figure it all out for me
until then ill use it inside a VM and learn how to use it and such, check compatibility etc. after all, the integrity of my system is required to be up to date and proven, really i should wait 6 months or more to be really sure. i used vista for like a year till i switched to windows 7.
It's a Developer Preview... Play around with it. Do metro style apps - means getting familiar the new metro style, getting familiar with apps behaviour. Try the new VS. Learn new features from Expression Studio. and so on. Since it's a DEV Preview, not all functions are enabled AND no guarantee for 100% stable (of course it should be, but hey, it's not beta... ) - it's for developer to test and use new functions and features... for others: nice to have a look @ the next windows (and of course lot of fun on trying new things... )
Because of those reasons, I would use the Samsung tablet from BUILD to play around or would run Win8 in a VM - so no worries if something's going wrong
No, I use WDP on another case-less PC (parts lay openly) and toying it around for kicks.
No i don't
i install it on a second HDD in dualboot
are 5 consecutive days that the PC is turned on with WDP except reboot for updates (dual boot with Seven) ... I'm feeling a little bit of everything and I'm downloading a myriad of material that usually discharge from Windows 7...it all works smooth with 4gb ram q6600 gtx 560 1 gb 7200rpm samsung hard drive (64bit preview)
so for now I had to vote yes necessarily ! loool
Yes, I am using it as my primary OS on both my desktop and laptop at the moment, we'll see how long it lasts
I installed dual boot on a vhd image
excuse my English, I'm french
50 % same here, on laptop is primary and working very well
Tried on Desktop(Dual boot with seven SP1) and had some issues(Blu-RAy not visible anywhere...know have to try a suggest in other post, and a issue with Hauppauge HD TV USB stick, hardware well installed, but the last software DL from home site says me that my I3 desktop PC is a netbook ???? and not possible installing there...)
HAve to check soon for solve.... now with seven DL about a 140 gig movie stuff..
NO...win 8 is a piece of crap..if U want a good Preview install Server 8 and use R2ConvGUI and U will have no problems and it is twice as fast as win 8. U can also make changes to MUI and Dll files without messing it up. it is easy to modify.
For newer PC, I use it as main, for older PC, I used other windows as main.
I use Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server Core 2008R2 as main OS
Yes, I'm using this build as my primary OS on both my desktop and laptop.
I using WDP as primary OS when i modify some hardware the system is automatically perform repairs....
On a test machine here ... I like it though!!
Yes, using on PC and Laptop, although win7 is still an option on my PC. I have no major problems, all my peripherals work fine. The only thing I cannot do is load Avast and I would like to do that. I am getting some alarms with the windows 8 security malicious websites, keygen, etc., .. how can I know how well it will compare with Avast? ... time I suppose.
Than you are stupid
