Still amazed how many drivers for some obsolete HW was found automatically and installed without me even noticing. There's only one piece of HW I was not able to install driver for and that's an Alcatel 3G modem and it's driving me crazy. One wrong driver it kept installing and that's for a Kworld TV card but Win7 x64 drivers work, so even that ended OK.
Hope nobody takes it wrong if I keep compering W8 with W7 because I find it (apart from Modern UI) so familiar. As per usual I customized it to suit my long established habits but this time I have the Modern UI to play with. Being where I am I do not have chance to by any Metro apps but no big loss as I have not seen many that I can not replace with some other aftermarket ones. Also found a few registry hacks that make it easier to activate than to have to go to Charms Bar all the time. So that objection from W8 naysayers is out. Don't have any device with touch screen yet but mouse functions just fine for anything necessary to operate.
So, am I in the club or what ?
