My Views after a few weeks use

Having run the DP for several weeks as a home user using duel boot, I feel it will be a worthy follow on from windows 7 .The last preview I found to be this stale was Win 98 its faster to boot up. Faster to open the applications I use, and a much clearer display. Using the gadgets I have closely followed the usage of various aspects and all give lower use than 7

It does seem the Metro to replace the start menu is here to stay , Once it has been used I don't find it a problem, and may invest in a touch screen monitor, and it seems Microsoft is already dealing with the shutdown switch issue.

I have found that all my programs which I have used before I have installed without problems. The only exception has been a DTV USB stick , no drivers or hot fix's are available as there were none for Win 7

I find I am using the DP more often than Win 7.

I look forward to the Beta Version and if the same deals that were available as per win 7 I would take advantage and install it.

Dr. Charles is shown as the last poster, however this addition is not displayed, perhaps the FE can explain why ??

I deleted the post. Not because there was anything wrong with it, per se, but because it was posted in the wrong forum area. It was a pretty long post, so I sent the text to the person concerned, suggesting that it might be better positioned in another forum area. He decided not to do that, as there was some factually incorrect information in the text.
