Well, now.

I am advised by the installation programme that my two week old Acer Aspire, with its Core 13 13-330M processor is not up to the task of running Windows 8!

One wonders what processor power the new o/s really needs, particularly since the preview version ran perfectly well on another Acer Aspire, which is two years older.

I only tryed it because of the rumor that it was possable to disable Metro, which is incorrect.

Microsoft may be determined that Metro is the only way foward, however end users will prove then correct or incorrect in the sales figures.

Hence Win 8 has been removed from my system
