At Build Microsoft showed a bunch of ARM reference tablets with Windows 8. But they were all behind glass. Here’s video of some actual use of an ARM tablet running Windows 8. It proves it’s not vaporware at least but I think we’d all love to see this on a 2.5ghz quad core ARM CPU to really see where this is headed:

  1. AND YES DAVID I AM USING THIS RIGHT NOW ON AN ARCHOS 9 WINDOWS PC TABLET.

    If you want screen shots and video clip from an actual user let me know. Doug Smith has my e-mail address.

  2. I’ll most likely load my Tablet with W8 over the weekend.

    Herg, we want some Video for sure. Great jobs on your Apps!

    When all you can do is cry and cry and cry Herg-A-Fied Services hears that and throws it back in your face just to shut you up!!!!!

    How to Disable the Windows 8 Metro User Interface and get the normal Windows Start Menu back:

    Start the Windows Registry Editor by starting the Windows Task Manager. Once the Task Manager is open, click on File, then Run, and type regedit and press the OK button. The Windows Registry editor will open and you should navigate to this key:

    hkey_current_user\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer

    Under that key you should see a value labeled RPEnabled. Change this value’s data from 1 to 0. You should now have the normal desktop with the normal Windows Start Menu.

    To enable the Metro User Inteface, simply reverse the change by setting RPEnabled to 1.
