Now, isn't this an outright support of priacy also known as parasitism, in biology?

@Seun,

I once opened a thread and seun personally warned me that "we don't condone piracy"

Now imagining this poo hanging on the front page.

Nairaland lost its credibiliti

oyb: on a side note - as much as is feasible, i download my movies in 720p mkv - that 1.93gb avengers must be hard on your bandwidth quota

Actually no. I downloaded 70% of it on my school network. Now I'm on hols I'm completing it with MTN weekend bundle. But the Windows 8 file was entirely on an MTN data bundle.

Good for you....tried using daemon tools and mounted the iso files....ran into some complications so I decided to format the pc completely....funny thing is that I used virtually all the stages of windows 8....from developers preview to consumer preview to release preview and finally to the complete version.....it's very cool....
For those that want to know what it offers, it offers plenty things like a messaging app that links you to all your facebook contacts and some other chat app where you can just log in without having to use your browser (automatic when you're online....though even people you don't want to chat with will know you're online)....a mail app that sync all your email messages from hotmail to google to yahoo...just name it....a people app that connects you to your social networks like linkedin, facebook (you can update your status from there....it is different from the messaging app)....maps, travel app which is also a guide and you can also search for flights to any part of the world and book your ticket.....news app, sports app for lovers of sports (anyone you want)....it has its own reader though I still prefer adobe....it has its own video and music player (different from windows media player and center)....an app that enables you see magnificent places in the world and the history behind 'em.....start menu interface changed.....two internet explorers (your chrome could also change)....you can play xbox games and buy 'em online, you can get different apps from the windows store such as wikipedia, nature, nasa, a cooking app that can help you prepare delicacies from all parts of the world, exercise app for those who love keeping fit......they're just too much and it's only when you experience 'em will you enjoy the long story I've written up there.....

Lemme re-phrase that: something challenging that LOOKS nice. That said, Debian trumps Fedora. And Ubuntu wins.

Getting files ready for installation (70%)
I get your point now. My system is a dual boot windows 7 and ubuntu. I suggested fedora because i thought you wanted a challenge.

If you end up bricking your PC, SIMONANDAL CANNOT BE HELD LIABLE. SimonAndal in NO way or part contributed to the voiding of warranty of the Windows 8 software by Microsoft.
