Thought we needed a thread where users could posts their thoughts/experiences/questions about Windows 8. I'll start off. I didn't want to replace my existing Win 7 on my main machine with Win 8, and I had a a Pentium 4 2.4Ghz with HT and 1 GB of RAM that I use sparingly with Win 7 and PC-BSD. It had a freshly formatted old 200GB IDE/PATA drive in it so I thought I'd try a triple boot. WEI Scores: Processor: 3.4 RAM: 4.4 Graphics: 2.1 Gaming Graphics: 2.7 Primary Hard Disk: 5.3 Seems pretty usable. Certainly not a speed demon, little surprised the RAM and HD scored so high because it seems when there is a noticeable amount of lag it is when the HD is churning away pretty hard. Suppose thats just the lack of RAM. But I'm not going to be upgrading the RAM in this thing anyway (old ram is way too expensive) - I later turned off paging on the C drive and put it on the D (Window's 7's C) so now the pagefile is on a different drive than where the programs and OS are. I expect that has helped, but I didn't use it terribly long before the change-over. Was disappointed on first boot that neither the graphics card (nvidia 6200) nor the audio (some c-media chipset) were not auto detected. So on boot I had 2 resolutions to choose from and no audio. Fortunately this machine also boots into PC-BSD and Windows 7, so I was able to go to the other hard drive and get the nvidia drivers from <Win7Drive>:\nvidia and then I told Device Manager to look in <Win7Drive>:\Windows\system32 to find the audio driver. So I have decent video and sound now. It seems to be a fair bit faster than Windows 7 on the same hardware. In fact, using Opera with the option set where plugins do not load without my consent has made browsing on it almost as quick as on my main machine.
