does w8 support ycbcr in ie10 or it still default to srgb?i am all for upgrading but if we dont have the feature most hdtv have ,how can ms expect user to upgrade and with the hobbit ,dp1.2a,quadhd,3d etc all coming out.w8 will need to step up if they plan to sell w8 because for now a lot of complaint have been formulated all over the web!

No because I think its only good for notebooks or Tablets. Win7 way better for desktop computers. Only interesting thing is the improved performance.

I wont buy it and thats because of one thing! Metro, I think microsoft had been better off by making two versions of windows 8, one for tablets, Windows 8M (metro) and a cleaner version for desktop users. thumb.gif
post #438 of 680
I downloaded the Windows 7 consumer preview yesterday and suffice to say I LIked It[/U
At first I was like a lot of you holding back my reservations, and the first 15 minutes I was like wow please give me my start button but after that you become accustomed to its layout and you can always use the desktop application which runs your PC as if it were Windows 7 minus the start button - i know a lot of you would say the start button is the main feature you will miss you they have worked out a number of ways of making your pc use a lot faster but hey I am still upset that they removed such an iconic button.
Windows 8 also gave me significant speed increases from the opening speed of applications but also internet browsing was a lot faster!

Anyway thats my two cents hope it helps provide a little more information to this debate =)
