It says that it can not connect to the internet. So, maybe the service is off :/

Installed Windows 8 Release Preview 2 days ago. I won't be buying the final version when release. It's a pain in the ass learning new tricks in Windows. Even trying to restart my computer I have to Google "How to restart PC on Windows 8" before I know how. Accessing drives used to be an easy task now getting difficult. The new OS feels like Windows 7 but with a different look. Maybe this new OS is good on touch pad & touch screen PC but it's just hard learning basic stuff that's getting complicated.

I'll be picking it up. I don't think it's all bad like some do but then again I'm moving from Vista.

As it is? No, definitely not.

If they restore the Win7 UI and disable metro by default on everything that isn't a touchscreen? Hell yes.

No.
