Single Status Update
After learning how to setup Windows 2008 server with group Policies and Active Directory, I am actually starting to like Windows. The only thing that is annoying me is the Metro interface, even Windows Server 2012 has that login interface instead of a standard Windows 2000 styled login menu. I tried to install the Windows 8 RTM x64 in Virtualbox and I got errors and was unable to install the Release Candidate.
I have Windows 7 Ultimate working perfectly with Virtualbox and guest additions, so WTF is up with Windows 8? I made a 25 Gigabyte VDI and the installation said my system needed repair. but I had not even installed it yet.
I will have to get a new HDD and install Windows 8 on that, I have an old IDE drive I could use to test it out, but is there any reason to even use Windows 8 when I have Fedora 17 and Linux Mint 13? Windows 7 is supported for a long time yet and businesses are not going to rush to upgrade to the new Windows when Windows 7 and XP are still prevalent.
