Stardock has done so with Start8.

They fixed a lot of performance and driver issues this time.

That and it's only $40 for the Pro download.

Video Games.
Would you like some WINE with that, sir.

wine is horribly slow as linux lacks any good drivers whatsoever and playing games through a virtual machine only adds to the bottleneck

Yup. Just tested it and got it working with the compatibility wizard.

The screen went black a couple of times but Alt-Tab fixed it.

Why is there a three month silence in this thread? Come'on.. windows 8 is definitely not worse than 7. I have been using it on my laptop for one month now and I have to say that I got the hang of it. Sure, there are some things which take a while to get used to but all in all, I would have to say that it's rather interesting. :)

For instance, with this OS you can bring your laptop to the factory settings while keeping all of your files. It works pretty much like the reset option on a smartphone.

God I love my PC and its 20-bit gigamax hard-processor with dby2 spec upgrades and 10 second blue screen reboot turbo! Fuck Windows, its just so unnecessarily complicated and bland.
