[Neowin] Windows 8 Consumer Preview Download - Page 13

post #121 of 362
The only thing that annoys me, is the fact that when you leave the App in Metro, it doesn't close it. You have to move your mouse to the top left hand corner to close it out.

The only thing I cant figure out is, After I install my sound drivers, It works. Then as soon I reboot it doesn't. With Win8 Dev preview, this didn't happen. I prolly figure out what causing it sooner or later.

Alt+F4? That is what I use to manage the apps. With the keyboard shortcuts, it makes navigation simple.

For some reason though, my Corsair 1500 gaming headset works, even though it's plugged in to a USB port. I don't get what's going on.
It wouldn't be such a big deal, but since the Track Pad doesn't have drivers, it's junk too! It skips around like crazy and has a mind of its own.
So can anyone help?

This happened to me when I first installed. Everything was working but the mouse pointer would not work at all, a quick reboot fixed that for me though. Sorry for not being much help.
I went all in and installed it over seven just to be ballsy (even though I had my virtual machine up and ready for it). I'm enjoying it except for the stock metro apps, they seem awesome but with an Australian Microsoft account you can't sign in to the apps themselves. Oh, the metro IE10 is pretty cool as well, very minimal and nice autocorrect.

This is great! Exactly what my HP Touchsmart PC needs. I love the apps. Makes it nearly seamless to use with my Android tablet. I love it. No extra drivers needed. It works out of the box. I'm so stoked about it, I'm about to kill the dual boot and use the full disk.

Sure can't wait to check this one out. smile.gif
I'm just not sure I'll ever be able to truely adapt to using a touch-screen on a regular,
and that makes the cost hardly effective.

Wouldn't your arm(s) get tired?
How about typing?
Gonna pop up the on-screen, and type on a vertical surface? upsidedwnsmiley.gif
Again-- How do your arms feel after a couple paragraphs...?

You could also say goodbye to having any distance between you and the screen.
Which is a shame, cause the Metro UI seems so fitting for PC on the telly.
Utilizing the touch interface will be as convenient as a TV with no remote...

No hatin'-- Just my honest skepticism of trying to main-line the touch-screen into the desktop OS.
With the design being so driven towards the concept,
it's that much worse without (e.g. play Skyrim with mouse and keyboard).
It certainly will do great for portables, though.

Unless Microsoft is planning on giving away free touch-screens with the retail OS,
I'd probably be waiting for touch technology to be an absolute standard in hardware.
Like when the day comes that even the cheapest monitors are touch capable.
Or maybe MS could officially support the Kinect (or the likes intended for PC),
and just let it go for a friendly price...
Then I can at least "touch" the screen from across the room, even if it's my TV or old monitor! thumb.gif

Uhhh... What?

Just because it is tailored towards touch screens, does not mean it will not work with a m+kb. A remote would be fine too since the tiles are in a grid pattern.

When the windows 7 RC came out i literally never looked back to Vista ever again. It wasnt even a question. I cant say the same for this... Windows 8's MetroUI cripples the landscape that is known as your desktop. It is nothing but a series of redundant full screen menus that take you away from the real computer.

Its literally "Windows 7 MediaCenterUI Editon." And to make matter worse you want everything based around my hotmail account, which you are now renaming? So basically your telling me you want to integrate into everything? All im see is negatives. I dont see anything positive except they put back the "Up to" button in windows explorer.

This will remain a secondary boot option on my backup computer.

Navigating with only just the mouse is very clunky. Try task switching in Metro without the keyboard and using only the mouse.

As I'm mega-busy I haven't downloaded this yet, but I have a spare 160GB hard drive to stick into my Toshiba laptop so I'll try this on there. However I'm not really sold on it so far. I don't really like the Metro UI (yet weirdly I like the similarly-styled Omnimo theme on Rainmeter) from what I've seen.
