Windows blue 9364
« on: 27/03/2013 16:00:46 »
Incredible as I may seem Microsoft have produced a evaluation version of Windows 8 that is even more awkward to work with than the normal version I know that real geeks only ever use UNIX but I wonder if any one out there has tried it.
Despite its serial number 9364 it is in fact X86 and it seems impossible to run classic set top with it that makes the normal version of Win 8 just about usable all though it seems to be complete for the moment so you don't have to spend an hour or so loading updates.

There seems little interest in windows blue but I will report progress, The x64 versions is now available as windows 8.1 as well as the x86 version as windows blue.
It still contains the warning that you darest not use it but fixes are available to hide this !, it incorporates a new version of the browser e.g. IE11 that is at present not compatible with banking although there is a compatibility mode and also many useful programs will not run because they require NET3.5 that will not run, and many of the fixes that enable criminals to run extended life versions of trial programs also do not run so I am told but of course I have not tried them ! .
It runs fast and loads fast and generally looks like the regular windows 8.
The programs that get rid of the Disney land stuff and make it look like windows 7 work OK
