Windows 8 CP & SecondLife : It Works Just Fine : With A Few Tweaks

By Avatar JayR Cela

    The past few day's I have been testing out the new Windows 8 Consumer Preview, so far so good. But I have to say it was a pain in the ass tweaking things out. And No you can not eliminate the Metro UI, but you can easily work around it. Once you boot into the OS you will be presented with the Metro UI screen, just click on any application and this will get you to a somewhat normal UI, and boy it gets really confusing here.

    I think the first thing you may want to do is Google the heck out of tip's and tricks for Win 8 CP, and then turn off everything, all the extra crap, just shut it off. It's all garbage mostly dedicated toward's Tablet's and Smartphones, hell even trying to log off and shut down your computer is a total walk in the dark.

    The next thing you want to do is download and install a small program called ViStart, this will restore your Windows Start Menu, so it looks and behave's just like windows 7

    Once you turn off everything that you don't need, SeceondLife will run just fine, actually it runs fine under Metro too, it is just so confusing.

    Oh My, push me forward, Windows 8 may just be the turning point to get me to buy a Mac
