    RR with Win8

    What is needed to setup RR in Win8 and is it worth it from XP with a single-core 1GHz cpu and 1GB memory ?

    That was my first thought but when I ran the Win8 upgrade assistant on my VIA C7 PicoITX CarPC it did not find anything wrong with my system for Win8.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/w...e-to-windows-8

    Then I found the following...
    Minimum hardware requirements for Windows 8 Architecture IA-32 (32-bit)
    Processor 1 GHz (with PAE, NX and SSE2 support)
    Memory (RAM) 1 GB
    Graphics Card DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
    Storage 16 GB

    Yep, it's spot on the minimum requirement, but remember it's the minimum requirement.


    Once you start adding applications, especially a FE and a few plugins that's going to run like most of the horses Mitchjs puts his money on.

    touch screens, swipes, pinches, all that are you with eyes not on road...

    Maybe with RR, but I'm using Centrafuse fullscreen and there is no task bar visible.

    I think W8 is a great solution for $40 to update to a newer faster OS. Add Stardock's "star8" for <$10, then never have to look at Metro again other than maybe on a full reboot but just hit desktop and it's gone. I threw away or unpinned 90% of the pre-installed apps. It looks just like XP/W7 with a start button but faster, Hibernation works great (for me) , better audio handling than XP, and it will be supported my MS for updates all for about $50. I don't see the downside.
    I don't have an issue with task bar always on top with RR either.
