So they got some sense hammered into them at last.

I'll give 11 a try when it is fully released to the general public.

I tried Chrome but the google updater caused recording system audio dropout problems (and spikes on the DPC Latency Checker) on my system, which is also used for my recording studio system. It was a major hassle to get the google updater out of the system as I had to manually edit the registry to remove the multitude of google updater entries.

No, you don't. I downloaded the ISO image from here: Download Windows 8.1 Preview - Microsoft Windows. I prefer installing from USB, so I extracted the files and copied them over to my bootable USB drive. Clean installation from there.

Be sure to make a note of the product key right above the download links. You will need it during installation.

This is exactly why I don't use Chrome. I hated that Chrome has this ambiguous Google updater that buries itself deep in the registry and scheduled tasks, and it acts like a spyware sending every stuff you do to Google servers. It then gives you ads that is relevant to you based on your browsing history.

I only use Chromium, but it's too unstable to be my primary browser. I only used it when certain websites don't like IE.

Chrome, Blech!

I use VMs for the times I'm forced to run crapware (e.g. Adobe programs, Chrome, IE 8, Java, etc.).

I needed to install Chrome for my Web Design course.
When I installed it, it hijacked all of my Internet settings and file associations.

As a Firefox user, I'd rather run IE 9 or IE 10 than Chrome.
Of course when IE 11 comes out I'll need 4 VMs (one each for IE 8, IE 9, IE 10, and IE 11).

Hopefully, it's better than IE10, as it really turned my pc topsy-turvy.

Shouldn't they be up to IE 22 by now?


If you use Firefox, you'll get the joke.

I woundn't think of MS following that rapid release scheme. Despite the radical change from 7 to 8, many people (especially the enterprise) still view MS as conservative in terms of browser support. Heck they still patch IE 6 even though it only has probably 0.1% internet browsing usage.

I get the joke now, Firefox was released long after IE, and IE is on version 10, while Mozilla Firefox is on version 22
