Why would you run it in VBox? You can't get everything out of it that way...

Why can't I get everything out of it? It works just like a normal computer?

I don't use that stuff anyway. And, also it's a Developer Preview, I don't really want to use that stuff in a DP, all I want is to see how much it has changed.

Yeah, that should be better...

Will you buy Windows 8 when it comes out?

I'm not sure yet ... I probably will just for the new features it has. But I'm still trying to get used to the whole start menu. And I have yet to figure out how to change my default browser. Like I use Chrome instead of IE9 and the built in IE - which is the one that always pops up when i click on a link. Just gotta do some looking around.

I've used Windows XP. Vista in the past but my current operating system is Windows 7, as I absolutely love it's design, flow and speed.

I am running on this unit Windows 8.1. I also have a laptop with Windows 10. And a small computer with Zonin on it.

I am now running on Windows 8.1 because my old laptop has recently died and I've had to buy a new one.
I still really don't like Windows 8.1.

I think you'll probably like Windows 10 a little better when it comes out.

I personally not sure how I feel about Windows 10 now, as someone I was working with at Work Experience had the Technical Preview on his laptop, and it didn't look like the interface was as good as I was orginally hoping.
