Windows 8 Release Preview performance

  • Windows 8 RP really looks well polished. I like the new task manager and how it create a simple yet effective heat map on what processes and apps are causing load issues. Here I’m running the disk defrag tool; no GUI version as yet

WIndows8 Release Preview

  • First impression is that it’s fast, stable and overall a good installation experience over the web
  • Down side, is that you have to rebuild your PC which is typical of all MS beta programs
  • I have so far installed on a Samsung slate via USB and directly to a Dell XPS. Loosing Media Centre and DVD playback is a sad loss. Depreciating functionality between betas is poor planning IMHO, but falls in line with MS policy on their SKU’s
