    Installed on 2 PCs one x64 and once x86 . Funny thing is that the 32 bit OS actually sees all 6GB on the PC, I can't remember if Windows Vista which was the last 32 bit OS is used showed the full number or just the max 3.78GB it could use
    Even Win7 (AFAIK) could show more than 3.25GB RAM, however the OS can't use it. So still only 3.25GB.

    My experience on my 2010 "almost gaming" laptop was interesting. Out of "the box" it sucked big time. It was slow as hell. After I ran the updates, it turned into silky smooth butter. I think its because it was missing the graphics driver and was emulating ALL the effects in the CPU which is a bad choice. Ironically I also believe this is why my wifi wasn't connecting. The CPU was so busy that it didn't have enough resources to process the WPA-2 encryption system and it just gave up after 3 minutes. After I updated the graphics driver the wifi connected instantly.

    The only Windows preview I ever used was 7, since I hated Vista so much. Otherwise, I've always waited for official for Windows.
    You don't seem the grudge type. So you and Vista didn't work out. Its not like Vista intended to cheat on you. He was young and just wasn't ready for your goodness. ::ducking behind the sofa from flying high heal pumps.::

    Saying goodbye to Vista meant the very last BSOD I've seen so far. 7 had all the good looks of Vista without the temperamental attitude. 8/8.1 provided the stability of 7 with far less energy needed. 😊

    Hmmm... I've tried it and I feel in love with the (half) new start. I wish they would work faster and release it faster and some new smartphones too ;-) but I know it's going to take a while...
    Funny thing I run CCleaner on the technical preview and the application dispays my system is Windows 8.1 Preview....

    It doesn't work for me? What did you chose as the OS you are installing? Other Windows or something else?

    Day 1 installed Win10 Enterprise 64 bit:
    - VMWare Workstation 10, HP EliteBook 8560W i7 Quad core 24 GB RAM is laggy with 1 CPU, 2GB assigned. Increased to 2 Core/4CPU, 4GB and performance improved significantly.

    Day 3 installed Win10 Enterprise 32 bit
    - upgraded over 8.1 on HP ElitePad 900 (dual core Atom)
    - Retain settings and apps

    To this point, the only "issue" I've seen is that IE11 tends to be a bit more 'laggy' on some websites (including WPCentral!) than in 8.1; Chrome works fine. Have not yet found any application incompatibilities and am finding the Universal App store improvements to be solid. Do miss the corner swipe of the charms on the tablet, but that's subject to change as time goes on. Quite pleased so far; enough so that I'm taking the tablet on my business trip next week. Sadly enough, IT doesn't let our corporate PC/Tablets provide location information, so highly useful things like route planning in HERE Maps won't work for me.

    Using the Tech Preview in Hyper-V on Windows 8.1 Pro, I knew Hyper-V would come in handy for me at some point.

    But if it wasn't for Vista we wouldn't have Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 so for all the complaining people did about Vista it laid the groundwork for its successors.

    Adrian Kingsly-Hughes has an article on ZDNET that explains how to install Windows 10 Technical Preview in Virtualbox. He includes screenshots.

    As soon as possible, upgrading my Windows partition on my Air. I plan on using it all the way to retail if possible.

    A part of me wants to try it out but I don't have an extra machine that I want to load it up on. I'll probably just hold out for the final release

    I've got Windows 10 loaded on my main desktop in a VHD, have to say it's much quicker than my Windows 7 install (on the same computer)

    No, it probably just installed Wi-Fi drivers...
