I'd like to know if this version has portable workspaces (I think that was what it was called). Its supposed to create a portable and bootable full Windows environment on a USB drive. It was available on some earlier leaks although it was buggy.

I think they are planning on doing this but they have got too many bugs on the system at the moment to release it just yet.

Is there email? The only thing I can not find is email?

Windows index score went from 5.2 in W7 to 5.6 W8

So far I like it start menu on right takes a bit to get used to.

Launch the weather app and right-click anywhere on the app after it's up. You can use Windows Location service to find your location and add/edit locations if you like.

I've quickly learned that when on doubt, right click! It has a lot of uses in Win8!

It does in all fairness, has plenty of new features.

Just want to be able to disable the new tiles.
post #10 of 841
Well the tiles (program) can be uninstalled YES! Now just two, one to windows explorer and one back to desk top

Now if I can figure out how to change that ugly green screen background
