    I read a thread about it on the notebook forum but haven't got the guts to try it. Drivers are always a big issue.

    I've been debating if I was going to load the consumer preview or not. Like Rock stated, drivers are my sticking point. It looks pretty slick.

    You did get me thinking about it though, I have plenty of hard drive space and I got bored with linux and kicked it out.

    Isn't windows 8 touch screen based ?
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    I mutibooted with linux, xp and vista for quite a while. That grub boot can be a real pain when trying to kick linux and retain windows. And vista by itself is enough to muck up anything. Windows 7 saved the day from that disaster. I currently have one system with 8 primary partitions with several flavors on it of course. No more of that stinkin vista though.

    The system requirements have stayed the same since the last release, allowing even the most minimal of hardware platforms to run the OS. Official requirements from Microsoft:

    Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster

    RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)

    Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

    Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device or higher

    To use touch, you need a tablet or monitor that supports multitouch
