eXDee:nathan:CYaBro:nathan:joker97: Yes WHEN we get laptops with touch screen ... otherwise it better for tablets and not much better overall for laptops yes?
Much faster startup, WiFi association, bitlocker encryption built in and better power savings make it better for me on my laptop without a touch screen.
What do you mean by wifi association?
Did you see my issue on the 1st page of this thread about the missing 'Manager wireless networks'?
This is by design
To remove a wireless profile when not in range you use NETSH
Put a win8 laptop and win7 laptop side by side in standby
The win 8 will latch onto WiFi and get IP and surfing the web heaps faster
Wait, why such a design choice? How hard is it to add a UI for being ablet to see and remove saved wifi networks? O_o
I'll probably switch to it. But a lot of it still strikes me as incomplete software. it feels like the experience is almost there, but not quite fully integrated, and not quite refined. I'd be keen to see if this is updated in a service pack or waits till windows 9 for more of a polished experience.
Server 2012 server manage also feels a little bit off, its also almost there, but lots of little irks and quirks about it make it frustrating.
Also i find the shutdown challenge for new users quite hilarious?
don?t shutdown. Close the lid, or if it is a touch device, just put it down.
Let the OS handle the power management.
Or just set the (physical) power button to do a shutdown.
just put a shortcut to ?shutdown.exe /s /f /t 00? or other options, on your Taskbar and StartMenu, and then it is one click or tap away. No extra keystrokes or configuration or tool required.
if user is working in Desktop Mode. ALT+F4 or win+d then alt+f4
