[SIZE="1"]Developer Preview:[/SIZE]The first Beta preview of W8, everything which came before was just an alpha state, this was the first real prototype of this new OS, Metro interface, Ribbon on everything, Apps, etc. On the UX only basic drivers and options Works, forget special buttons, camera button or Gunze W7 Tablet Driver, the system Works good by a first taste, on that time we still have the Start button .
[SIZE="1"]Consumer Preview:[/SIZE]Works really well, full W8 experience, Metro and Ribbon the only way to work and imposible to disable it, good bye Start button will miss you forever; new App Store, notifications, Charms Menu everything more integrated with my Windows Live Account.. On the Vaio UX works flawleesly, i really love it, everythings Works, every driver, program, Special Button, the 2 Cammeras, everything, exept the Gunze W7 Tablet Driver again, that doesn´t botter me, i was really happy with this Consumer Preview because it uses the same RAM and CPU than Windows7.Only 4 languages avaible so bad.
[SIZE="1"]Release Preview:[/SIZE]Impresive, after a clean installation and all drivers ready i can install all special Vaio programs, special buttons etc. Budies i have to say im really falling in love of Windows 8, the new metro Apps has many improvements, and more integrated to my system, no lag, fluid, i don't miss the Start Button at all is faster for me using windows search just press windows button and type whatever you desire, i use more the metro Apps, contacts, mail and calendar are now my new best friends, the integration with Videos and Photos can be improved more but i really think that MS has a pair of surprices with that on the final version, Good Bye MSN Messenger, Contacts App is more than enough to comunicate with my friends of MSN, TWITTER AND FACEBOOK of course, Peopple App is nearly perfect and fast almost all Facebook and Twitter options are on this Desktop client, i will love to MS is they improve the Music App less full screen and more background but with control.
On the Vaio UX, By the first everything Work, Bluetooth Wifi Switch, the 2 Cameras works perfect, camera and zoom buttons, biometrics, etc, as always ther Gunze Tablet W7 driver doesn`t, the Vaio Touch Launcher not work properly but that happens on W7 to; the zoom buttons software works bad to but that is not important to me because i use it for another functions, everything else works really good. Im very pleasant with this OS, with all my programs installed, Office, Apps runnig in background and even MS Security Esentials, my minimum free Ram at startup is around 60 porcent, and only a 5 porcent of CPU ussage.
Follow my advice the Firmware Parser Driver y very very important, i could't get any installer which work so i tried to install it manually, just go to Device Manager, right click on Firmware extension Parser or check the uknow devices is one of them,just right click, properties, controller, update, select the folder where the uncompressed driver is and that's all folks.
A final recomendation, do the Regedit resolution Intel Driver Mod an use 1024x768 Res, then increase the DPI to 150% at all, or you can try a new W8 feature thats increase the DPI per element you can chose between : Titles Bar, Menus, Mesage Windows, Icons, information tools; all of those DPI values can been set individuallity wwith this you can enjoy the full W8 experience all the time
By first time i really recomend this OS, Spanish Language was a nice touch cause im Venezuelan and my english needs practice je je, please give it a try guys
Hello Guys i made another test intalling again Windows 7 and al the Drivers inlcuding the Gunze Tablet 100 Clicks limitation, everything Works good as usual the touch funtions where all there so i did a Windows 8 Update Installation, i have to say that im not a fan of carrying trash from my previous OS but for this test i do it to check if W8 could mantain the Tablet capabilities during the process and the anwer is: NO.
Im very dissapointed with this,the driver Works like the normal but with 100 clicks limitations no Pen and Touch functions where activated on Control Panel, no invisible cursor and no Windows menú Dragging. For a while i thought that it could be the Hardware 2 multitouch points requeriment of W8 after i see a HP TX2000 Tablet PC older than our Vaio UX with only 1 touch point can use the menus and draggin on this OS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g74rQZWVhPQ) thats really anoying me.
I have like 6 months asking for anyone who has the Full versión of this Touch Driver to please TEST Windows 8 and tell us if Works?? im not found any answer, i think that the first really focus Microsoft Touch OS is here and we are not giving it any chance. I know that many of you are going to say to me that Linux is the future and etc, but im just asking for the people that pays 30 bucks on a single driver to make a test of your invesment please. I will reinstall a fresh copy of W8 and continue my tests for a couple of weeks or maybe less, im really curious about of Windows Fundamentals for Legay PC'S and i wanna give it a try, i think that W8 on the UX doesn´t has more misteries to me for now.
