Pros up to now: It has a very small footprint and seems to be fast (I can't really tell because I run it virtual with only 2GB of RAM)
Cons up to now: I already stumbled on 6 bugs (the worst is that my 150% DPI is not applied throughout the system) and the difference to 8.1 is not apparent. The start menu does not make my day. I had no problems with the 8.1 start menu. There were other things that bothered me.
I agree - there's not a whole lot of new stuff and we shall see what comes next.
I turned off the start menu in favor of the start screen
Taskbar properties - Start menu - Untick Use the Start menu instead of the Start screen
Side note: I solved the wireless network adapter issue I had in Hyper-V by creating a Network Bridge (properties - tick Wifi, untick Ethernet) between the physical adapter and the virtual adapter.
Trying to setup Win7 Hyper-V - playing with a System Image backup - no luck yet, I might have to bite the bullet and install fresh on the VM instead of trying to fool with the System Image.
Win7 needs a legacy network adapter and Generation 1 of Hyper-V.
The same Network Bridge works for both Hyper-V machines.
Kari seems to be on top of Hyper-V - he has some good posts on TenForums.
