    I downloaded the preview last night. After install, and using it for several hours now I hate it. I will be removing the update from the 2 computers I was going to allow to update.

    Windows 10

    Thanks for the reply. That's pretty much what I was thinking. I think I need to download a copy of the trial Win10 to see if it's something I can live with.

    HTPC Case - I can't decide

    What are your restraints as far as where the HTPC will be placed? Depth x width x height? I have 2 of the Silverstone LC-13BE, and I love them, but it is quite deep. One other you might look at if space is an issue is the Silvestone GD-04 or 05. They have very shallow depths.

    abit NF-m2nView

    I've been looking at this one for about a month for a future HTPC build. The one thing that may kill it for me is I need component connections for my TV. If there isn't an adapter or dongle it will have to be DFI's infinity 482. I would rather go with an nvidia chipset though.
