comment Multitouch WPF on Windows7/8 on OSX doesn't work?
@LosManos - Yes, its gimmicky multi-touch. Like my answer stated, the Apple driver doesn't support it yet. Synaptic has a new standard that has WDM support. They are pushing it for Windows 8 systems. I'm starting to repeat myself, so I'll leave this question alone for now. Good luck.

You can put two fingers on the screen and see two inputs? Or is it that gestures like pinch zoom, scroll, rotate happen to work?

comment Can I put documents onto the Windows 8 Metro Start Menu?
@surfasb - Homegroups is in the metro control panel. When you search for documents, pictures, etc... you do get a title that looks like it should be able to be pinned, but it doesn't stay. Given the nature of the developer preview's focus on app development and Sinofsky's comments about the amount of missing features (eg: Paragon), I'm speculating that the beta will clear this issue up.

Do you have documentation that states that I must have 'secondary tiles' for documents, I haven't seen it or heard it mentioned? The rest of the post is subjective.

@surfasb - Yup, I have a corporate customer who I've been persuading to use the feature to help mitigate some IT department issues with backing up data. We'll see.

@surfasb - That's something I was thinking also. Homegroups too? As this is technical preview, and not a feature complete release, I'm curious to see what the Beta shows up with.

Yea, that's been tried see the existing answer. While watching the build conference sessions, I've been looking at what is on other's start menus. There's def a feature disparity between this build and what is installed on the Microsoft machines at the conference.

comment Can't see DVD drive in Windows 8 Developer Preview
You can't see the DVD drive (which may be an explorer option for 'Hide Empty Drives'), or the DVD drive doesn't show up in the 'Device Manager' of the desktop version of control panel (ie: not the metro one)?
