As you can see, I managed to smuggle an easter egg on their servers. Save your files before 20 August 8)

Jochen,

I did it before you did smuggle the easter egg; only for sure.  :biggrin:

Bypass the Windows 8 Start screen with RetroUI - New software lets you ignore the Win 8 Start screen so that all you ever see is the traditional desktop.

Doesn't say much about a new OS when you need utilities such as this to get back Windows as we know it.

Hot on the heels of the RTM version of Windows 8, a swathe of tools that can be used to either emulate the appearance and features of the latest version of the operating system, or tweak Windows 8, have emerged. Windows 8 Transformation Pack 6.0 and Windows 8 UX Pack 6.0 both fall into the former camp.

Hi Gunther,

It's the only version to test Server 2012.

Hi Vortex,

Hi Gunther,

It's the only version to test Server 2012.

that's clear, but it means a lot of effort (installation, maintaining, de-installation).

Hi Gunther,

It's not an effort as I use another computer to install and use the trial version.

you are right and that's a good idea. Will that work with my old Sempron?
