    Argh. The Windows 8 install failed and I really want to try this. Does the Calendar sync with Google and/or WL calendar. If it works well I would probably switch to WL calendar.

    It syncs just fine with Google Mail, Calendar en Contacts!

     I downloaded it and installed on virtual PC. I think most function of windows 8 consumer preview is better than Dev Preview. However, disappear of start button is not good idea. Um.. too small space between task bar icon and snapping function was uncomfortable for me. I think that it need small space and start button can prove this problem. ^^

    I look forward to windows 8^^

    Thank you

    Its just rather sad that WinRT  doesn't support XNA or Silverlight, so we cannot port our WP7 Apps.  Nor can we see  that we will reworking our LOB App to HTML5/ Javascript.

    We were really looking for a common Phone/Tablet  Platform like iOS  and ICS.  Windows 8 has missed the sweet point.

    I loaded Windows 8, luckily on my laptop (backup) computer. The program worked, but only sort of. It wouldn't go online or read my email. But the game worked. Now how do I removed it and restore windows.old?
