    By the time you post about the release preview (installing now) it will be old news, that was the original reason I let you have my e-mail in the first place. Not for your *I want things to be the way they have always been no start button disdain*, or your skepticism about it’s future because you don’t know how to look to see if you have compatible drivers in device manager, but merely for an update the moment it is available.
