Goonfella Posted November 27, 2012 Share Posted November 27, 2012 With MS`s new OS now released I was wondering how many people intend to upgrade. Also would there be any benefits to PDN by upgrading as it is basically a Windows program ? Personally I have been thinking about buying a newer laptop for some months now but so far have not found one I want. Also I want to wait and see how Win8 turns out . The one I have is 4 yrs old now and there are features like GPU Graphics Hardware Acceleration which I cannot use. I know there are plugins made for PDN which make use of this. Also Blender`s new Cycles rendering engine benefits greatly from it and even Firefox and IE make use of this feature. But my graphics card is too old to use it now. So I think it`s time for an upgrade to a newer laptop with a better graphics card. Of course I have my Win7 laptop all set up the way I like and am very comforable with it. One other thing I am not sure about is whether you will be able to use 3rd party themes in Win8. I have one called Elune which I am using at the moment which adds some nice subtle touches to 7 which make it look even nicer. I would like to be able to use it on the desktop in Win8 as well. So what are your thoughts on the subject? Quote Please feel free to visit my Gallery on PDNFans And my Alternatives to PDN Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
