Windows 8 Compatibility

Recommended Posts

I have installed Windows 8 on both of my machines -- a T-series Thinkpad laptop and a homebuilt desktop. TMG 8.04 installed and runs perfectly on both (but see the pinned topic on the K & N versions of Windows 8). The underlying structure and file system of Windows 8 is essentially the same as that of Windows 7. The "metro" scheme seems to be a kind of shell overlaid on the Windows 7 structure.


One keystroke (Windows-D) gets one from metro to the traditional desktop and there are already some free downloads which allow one to skip metro altogether when booting up. Windows-C invokes the metro sidebar (I forget what it's called in Microsoft-speak).
