    I must be fair. According to alleged statements, it has a way to go. But, assessment on its present performance, the MS obligation would be to offer it free as a Windows 8 update 3 to those who have purchase Windows 8 original.

    I cant wait for someone to figure out how to remove the search and desktop buttons from the taskbar, other than that though I think it is fantastic so far. New window transitions make the whole OS feel really snappy and being able to scroll windows in the background is great.

    Yeah apparently the search is going to have Cortana which will be interesting but not quite interesting enough for me to have it on my task bar. That stuff should be in the start menu or on hotkeys where it belongs.

    Same here. I have my desktop set up fairly conservatively.
    Is there anyone yet that feels they perfer v8.1 to what they've seen in the Technical Preview?

    Using a WINDOWS HOST (8.1 x-64) I've been unable to install VMWARE TOOLS using VMware workstation 10.0.3 so as a VM I can't get decent video or sensible mouse motion.
    My guess is you may need Workstation 11 to make it work.. VMWare is pretty notorious for needing a new version when new windows versions come out.

    For what it's worth, Client Hyper-V in 8.1 Update 1 works just fine, and has great graphics support (then again, in "enhanced mode" it uses the 3d virtualization...)

    Hi there

    Thanks for reply -- I think my original download was bad -- in any case I've switched to the ENTERPRISE version which seems to be OK now.

    Cheers

    All of the Windows 8 installs and now Windows 10 I have done, and I have done quite a few, would attempt to make you create or use the Microsoft Account logon. Only if you installed while offline would it just give you the option of a Local Account.

    I only run desktop systems, and have no experience with the Surface unit.
    I too was taken aback by having to login to the laptop with my Live Account. I then discovered this thread and created a local account. But I then discovered a glitch being I could not install apps from the Store because I had to use a Live Account. I tried using my existing one but received an error stating a Live Account was already being used by the laptop. Ok, makes sense but I didn't want to create a second Live Account for the local account. I then by accident discovered that by disconnecting the existing Live Account through "PC Settings > Users and Accounts > Your Profile" (while being logged under my Live Account) that the profile was copied to a local account. Now I just have the one login (using the same name and password). When I go to the Store to install apps I the connect to my Live Account. And I can disconnect at anytime and everything looks the same on my desktop.

    Getting W10 TP to run like my W8.1 installation only requires that I switch W10 back to using the Start Screen and then installing Classic Shell in the Desktop mode. I actually like W10 TP better, because so far, it seems to be a bit snappier when it comes to opening up programs, although my boot times aren't much different using an SSD.
