Don't want to install the Windows 8 Consumer Preview or can't get it to work in the first place?

Here's a neat little alternative...

I might give this a try. I'll let all of you know my findings.

So after playing around with this for about a week I've concluded its not really worth it.

For starters its quite laggy and sluggish. Adding tiles for other applications was simple enough but I found the ones I tried would crash a lot. Shutting down Metro7 and the applications would run fine.

I had no luck adding my google email info to the email tile.

If the A9 had a bit more horse power this probably would have been nice but then a full version of Win8 would run just as good.

Don't waste your time with this. Just keep running your stock version of windows.

That's all.
