Installed Win8 and Start8[^] on my gaming rig, and disabled the Modern UI crap.

Next time I have free time, I will create some Hyper-V VM's coupled with RemoteFX vGPU to multibox in some of the MMOs I play. If it won't turn out to perform well, I may as well switch back to Win7, or throw in more GPUs :/
GeneralMicrosoft is in a fast track way to destroy it's OS and it's developer base Pin
