I’ve spent the last week or so reimaging my main computer and bringing a Hyper-V server into play (and then getting both computer’s to talk together correctly). I finally took the plunge and redid my computer with Windows 8. Now this is a desktop…..I’m in the IT field and knew about Windows 8 but it does have Hyper-V client built in and had idea’s of getting a bigger test lab going. I also read where I can change the whole interface to Korean as opposed to Windows 7 where I needed the ultimate or enterprise edition or basically a edition I didn’t have where I couldn’t change everything to Korean.
Well it took maybe all of 30 minutes before I installed http://www.classicshell.net/ to get rid of the metro UI interface and put a start button back into bottom left corner of your screen. The metro UI interface is not really built for desktops. I find it too hard to multi-task and a number of other issues….but what does this mean for this blog. Barely any studying and I have to reinstall ANKI and get back into swing of things. It’s amazing how out of Korean studying I can become when computer things either go wrong or I do on purpose (well that’s for a ton of other things – paying bills, reading news….whatever I’m a computer needing type of human).
Well I’m a Windows 8 user now with some helpful add-on’s to make it more usable and when Windows 8.1 comes out and officially support having a start button and I assume giving you a choice to turn on the metro ui or turn it off otherwise I’m done touching my main computer and need to get back to studying Korean.
Now I just need to find some cool Korean desktop wallpaper. They come out with windows 8 and give you no new Korean themepacks to install but rather the same one from windows 7. Maybe I can force myself not to worry about that right now and study!
