wow ok win8 still needs some work.

I was on geeks with blogs on win8, and noticed I couldn't create a new post.
Now using chrome with 8 and I am posting.

I am finding things I like about windows 8 and things that I just don't know yet.
Like what's the shortcut key to bring me to a clean legacy desktop?
And also what about those apps that get suspended like the explorer app when you go to mail, and your explorer app was in the middle of downloading a file. So you have to start the download again.

I am impressed with some of the improvements, however I think in order for all these things to be accepted as a matter of well by the masses, chrome or firefox (ie won't do it) needs to upgrade their browsers to work with html5 and css3 fully. Obviously the first group that does that will be the browser of choice for any user.

There are other observations that I am on the verge of making, but I need to research a bit more before making any comments on the new windows store visual studio 12 environment.

Have a good day,
Signing off.

Gravatar Hey Foxjazz!

We were just alerted to an issue yesterday about IE10 not allowing you to create new posts on GWB. You can hit F12 and change IE10 to IE9 mode which fixes the issue as a workaround. Certainly not ideal, but will work until we get it fixed. I'll be looking into this today. I really apologize for any confusion this is causing you.

By the way, I've been able to use my old friend, "windows-d" (think "d" for desktop) to jump to the windows 7-esque desktop mode in Windows 8. Hope that helps!
