I'd have probably act as an actual tester, though.

That's weird. I read the same thing too that they disallowed further translation and development (development to work with VNDS frown.gif ).

Well. It worked!

 

I won't see this for another few months since all I use the Start Screen for is search... 

 

 

The desktop is pretty much the exact same as 7's with a few improvements like multimonitor taskbar... Pretty sure you wouldn't be losing anything moving to 8. 

 

Haha, I use my start menu pretty often... specially now that I cleared off my whole desktop.

Strictly from what I seen, I'm not looking forward to use the default Win8 UI. Yes I know there're ways to bring back the desktop, but I said so that the desktop isn't what I use, but it's the bar thingy.
inb4 bowei accuses you of being a commie for not embracing THE FUTURE!!!!!!!!!!
Refer to my reply to kalbee. And that was strictly based on what is shown in the screenshot. I'm not dismissing it altogether yet, it's just that I didn't have any chance to use it in a time length that I'm comfortable to give a definite answer.

I'll put everything in spoiler tag not to take too much space

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This is where the start menu is--if you want to click it rather than press the start/windows button:

The above is when you right click rather than left click. I know it's currently in Japanese (testing stuff out atm) but it's somewhat like the usual right-hand-side of the start menu, where you get access to control panel and etc.

 

 

Down below is control panel and stuff. You can see that I have now set the taskbar to go on the right side of the screen, and that in doing so I am multi tasking and there are windows that are not in full screen.

 

 

How the desktop looks (I emptied most everything out).

 

Now as far as APPs go...

see the tiles that are by default plain colored? Like the Windows Store, Camera, Maps, and One Note MX? Those are Apps.

 

 

They open up in full screen. These are apps so they don't run on the desktop.

They tend to all have a loading screen with one solid color and words or icons in the center. I missed the timing so you see the loading screen fade out.

 

 

Here's in the app.

 

 

If you put your mouse to the upper left, you can left click to switch between apps or the regular Windows system, much like the way you can switch between tasks/apps on Android devices. Basically you can see the different apps + the window system open.

If you right click you can choose to close or snap to left or right.

 

 

This is with the stuff (Windows system, since I am currently on the app) snapped to the right.

 

 

Likewise I can either snap the app to the right/left, or just drag that middle black bar around to decrease the size of it.

I think it can only do full screen or this kind of snap proportion (1/4 vs 3/4), no in betweens.

So the AMD Hydravision is more flexible.

 

Some programs will allow you to choose how it will behave: like a windows software or like an app.

Chrome right now is set as desktop mode. But if I choose to launch it in Windows 8 mode, even if I open it via the .exe in Program Files it will launch as an app.

Needless to say, I don't like the apps function all that much since it lacks flexibility. Pretty much only use it for OneNoteMX in class.

Why not just get a hyper 212 cooler? They go on sale here in the states for $20 all the time, and keep my Xeon ivy bridge running around 35C when idling about and 45C or so during load (though I haven't done too many intensive tasks with it since I upgraded to it :/)

Project-IA progress for today....

 

 

 

 

The controller is still.... non-existent so I fitted a dummy-controller.
I need to flip switch 4 , wait at least 1 second, and flip switch 2 to power on safely. LOL

 

I'll probably make a less-dumb controller tomorrow and make it the the meet the day after.

I know you do a lot of enthusiast stuff.

Im getting into fancier shaving blades and stuff right now. But its always good to be enthusiast about stuff

Nice, what kind of Razor did you get?  Make sure to get a blade pack with a variety so you can find the one that works best for you.  Get a record player! That's my latest kick, love going to flea markets, and thrift shops to hunt down new ones.

Nice work! Looks like it's coming along nicely!

Open or closed?

I'd recommend some DT770s and a nice FIIO portable amp to go with it.  Or open maybe AD700s, a lot of people hate on them, but I personallly love the sound signature on them.

Haha, yea probably closed than if using at home, locks in sound better.  I really think the DT770 is a great headphone.  They are comfortable and have a pretty good sound signature, it is V-shaped.  Nice punchy bass, good highs.   You can pick them up for about 170$, then with the extra money pick up a FIIO to give them the extra power they need.  That's me .02$, sure the others with a little more experience can offer better advice!  Also if he's going to be using strictly for the computer, he can pick up a nice desktop amp, like the Audio Engine D1, which also doubles as a DAC.

If it's v shaped, then what csirus said is a good start. Oh and make sure to look carefully for the lower... impedance (?) one. 32 ohm I believe.
