(Solved) - Windows 8 official release date(30 posts)
The free Release Preview is available to everyone even non-IT folks, so they can create their own installation ISO-DVD, in case folks reading this were not aware that they could try it out first with no risk.... You can use it free until at least January 2013....that's why I tried it out, it's growing on me. I find it comical that, for $5, you can have Win8 look the same as Win 7. 5 bucks to look like Win7, but will MS be able to lock it out?
Rick, Tried one of those classic shell apps a while back and it was ok but uninstalled, to many bugs.
I agree with Kestrel10. If your relying on productivity you don't have time for OJT. If you can afford to send your employees to a Win8 training class then that might be different.
I tried Win8 for a while and it's a nice toy but it's still a toy.
Classic Shell is Fixed now. Don't know when you tried it ????
As for Windows 8, blame MS, don't blame me as I never asked for it.
DOS 6.23 was good enough for me. (LOL) :) :)
I always used Robotics for Reliability and Productivity in the plants which I managed.
HTG doesn't have a Forum for Robotics. :( :(
@superevil, I do not have a Win7 license, or I would take you up on the trade. I craigslisted a custom built screamer PC and it had the Free Release Preview, not an official OS license....
