  • So far I've installed the DP on:

    1. Some VirtualBox virtual machines.
    2. Some Hyper-V virtual machines.
    3. Some Vmware 8 virtual machines
    4. A Dell Latitude D830.
    5. A Dell Latitude e6510

    and by and large, given the early nature of this release I've been
    pleasantly surprised at how well things have worked.

    This morning, I decided to push the envelope a bit by attempting an install
    on a Motion Computing M1400 tablet. This tablet was released in April of
    2004 so I wasn't expecting too much.

    Well, I was blown away. Sure, there are some hardware devices for which I
    haven't been able to find drivers for yet (though I haven't really spent
    much time on that yet), however, it booted, the performance is fairly
    snappy, certainly no worse than Windows 7 that I'd previously kludged onto
    the tablet, and even the digitizer was recognized and works! Still
    obviously not a "touch" experience, but certainly closer than anything I've
    installed so far.

    Well done!

  • That's awesome. I love hearing stories about people putting 8 on old machines and getting reasonably good performance.
