    I've been bothered by this delay as well. There was a forum post (forgot where) that advised to install an older Windows 7 driver. Did that and all my issues about the delay are gone. I'm sticking to this driver even if Wacom updates their Windows 8 driver.

    Win 8 has totally mucked up my permissions on my C drive. I can't access anything now even though I'm an administrator. I've researched everything for the last 3 days and always a dead end. I can't refresh Win 8, nothing. I've had to order Win 8 Disk from Microsoft and reload the OS. I can't find my original recovery disk for my computer which had Win 7.

    At my place of employment I sit near the IT department. I've been listening to them rant about Windows 8 all day. Apparently, today was their first day working with it and they are very much not happy with it.

    Windows 8.1 is coming and free so hopefully it addresses some issues.

    It just occurred to me that Win8 is like BOB. No one that either.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Bob

    "It was one of Microsoft's more visible product failures. Microsoft's Steve Ballmer mentioned Bob as an example of a situation where "we decided that we have not succeeded and let's stop."

    The hated font Comic Sans was created for, but was not used in Microsoft Bob.

    Bob was terrible. Win8 is the most secure and fastest version of Windows to date. It's also easier to use than previous versions.

    It might be worth giving this a bash, can you let me know which driver version you are using?

    Cheers.

    The internals seem good, but I find that Metro rapidly becomes a mess when you are using a lot of applications.

    Metro ui is obnoxious and too in your face, covers the whole screen who's idea was that? Kids and "old" kids love it because anything that you can swoosh in public and cafe's is cool.

    It's like it was designed by PlaySkool Toys.

    I remember MS Bob. I was asked to install it on a friend's PC after I sold them my old PC. I tried to talk them out of it, quoting system resources and all that jazz. They still wanted it. I reluctantly gave in. Lame!

    EDIT: Hah! I got 1:42 into that video and found it too painful to watch.

    I don't know what you're doing to it, I have about 70 icons on my Start page, both programs and apps, and it's nice and organized. Also faster to access things than it was with 7. That said, I can't wait for 8.1 to come along and make it even better.

    Of course how much time do you spend with the Start Page on the screen anyway? 5 seconds each time you need to open a program? Less?

    I'd never heard of Microsoft Bob. I watched that video for a minute or two, expecting the joke to become obvious. Then I realised it was a serious bit of software!

    The mind boggles.

    Just bought a touch enabled windows 8 laptop. What a horrible os for touch screen. Lol. Didn't notice how horrible windows 8 was since I was using it as a normal desktop, laptop os. With a touch enabled laptop its useless. Changing the volume on windows media player, using office appz, etc, most software on windows is not really designed for touch so its so useless. Apple got it right not making a dual purpose os.
    Stay away from touch enabled windows laptops.

    I just bought a Windows 8 laptop specifically to play Kerbal Space Program (its physics code is single-threaded and doesn't work so well on my Mac Pro -- it's also why I've pretty much dropped out of sight -- when I'm not at work, I'm in simulated space), and Windows 8 is just awful. Hate it. Worst OS this side of Windows ME.
