comment Can I go back to fresh install of Win7 if I don't like Win8 (after upgrade)?
regarding the Virtual Machine, I tried this, using the official Windows 8 Enterprise Trial from MS. It installs and runs, but in order to get it to run fullscreen at full resolution (1080), I needed VirtualBoxGuest additions, and once that was installed the OS was unusuably slow. Without fullscreen, you don't get the mouse niceties events in the corners or edges of the screen.

comment Setup non-MS email (gmail) in Windows 8 Mail app
Apparently that was it. Need to be signed in with an MS account to do anything with those built in apps, like Mail. That's very disappointing.

@GrahamWager I'm not sure if it's activated. I am not signed in with an MS account. I went in thinking I would just use gmail from the get go. Maybe an MS account is required? Will try and find out.

type only works with existing files it seems. In my case, I want to be able to specify the text inline.

comment Is it safe to use wall-socket -> USB chargers to charge any USB device?
If 5.0V is the standard, wouldn't the output on the HP charger of 5.3V be a problem?

comment Network (offline) install of Windows XP SP1
@JourneymanGeek Just tried SP3 first - complained that the OS must be at least SP1 to proceed.
