I can believe this bravado (had to search my soul to find that word), I bought a copy, dual booted and actually used this software for a week. I cannot access my email (it does not like pop3), cannot open a email in excite for reasons completely unknown to me, cannot play a dvd without downloading questionable codecs (or paying M$ for something they should have supplied), cannot switch between win7 and win 8 without shutting my machine down (otherwise it blue screens), and trying to navigate its useless app screen to get to programs is just short of madness with a desktop and no touch screen. Lots of people like myself gave it a fair chance, it is not ready for prime time players. Yes, I believe they sold 40 million copies to people like myself, glad I dual booted. If this is the future of computing, we are in deep trouble. M$ expects people to be productive on this software? The only reason I could give for using this software is it does boot faster (after I turned the hybrid boot fast startup software off it booted faster)? The apps available may humor someone, I have only found 3 that may be of any value. This software is running on a quad core with 8 gig of ram, and a very good graphics card. Glad I kept win7. The kids will love it. As you are dual booting, it is safe to assume you upgraded? If so, you have free WMC upgrades waiting on you, complete with DVD software. There are also parts that make me question your hardware. I have 2 machines now upgraded to Windows 8 final, and neither have that problem... both running completely different hardware as well.
WJ has lowered from being an astroturfer for M$ to being an apologist for M$. His groveling says it all...
