I love that they added the ability to do this in Win 8.1, but didn't tell anyone. People still bitch that you can't boot to desktop but you actually can, and it's easy to change.First up, Windows 8.1 default settings will now boot to desktop mode, rather than the Start screen, on any computer that uses a keyboard and mouse as the primary input. You can still manually change those settings.
Why wait till XP fails to move to Linux, if you were going to do it you would have alreadyCool this update should coincide with the Xpocalypse I'll be waiting for XP to fail on the 8th so I can switch to Crunchbang Linux.
I agree with Christopher Shaffer. The only - **ONLY** - issue I has was some discolouration that happened on Fallout 2's main menu, but in-game it's fine and that's a game from 1998!What utilities are you using that aren't working? I've had some issues with old disassembly tools not working, but I think that's a result of moving from 32bit Windows to x64.Thanks,Andrew[quotemsg=13016587,0,106933]Too bad about all the incompatibilities of old games and utilities[/quotemsg]Please post the incompatible programs you can't run in compatibility mode. I've even run dos-based games in Win 8.1, so I'd love to see proof.
