Patrik Arwengrim: A bumpy video of my tablet running Windows 8 developers preview. Even if
it's in an early stage still it works pretty well but there are some
stability issues once in a while. But all in all it feels like Microsoft
are on to something pretty good here.
KYVisothSambath: Can the softwares running in window7 can be installed/run normally in
window8? I'm afraid that the softwares that i used to use in window7 cannot
be installed in window8, such as AutoCAD, SAP2000, Robot Structure,....and
some other old software versions. Is the current window8 stable yet? or
does it have some bugs? Thanks for the review.

MicrosoftFan: Hello. I too have a Q550 running Windows 8 Professional and I must say that
it is much better than the original Windows 7. The only thing I could
mention (maybe you have had this problem) is that sometimes when I boot up,
it will give me a driver error but I restart and it's all good. What do you
think about the Windows 7 vs Windows 8 on this machine?
H. Petersen: How does it run videos?
MEHDI CMEHDI: better on windows 7
MEHDI CMEHDI: hello is windows 8 better than WP7 in Q550 THANKS
Kirkaiya: That looks pretty decent, especially considering the Q550 is only running
on a single-core Atom CPU. I'm thinking about buying one on eBay (~$600
new) just to load Windows 8 Dev Preview, to use it for a test-tablet for
apps I might write, and also of course just to have a tablet for weekend
trips and stuff. Thanks for posting this - I did a search on Fujitsu
Stylistic 550 +"windows 8", and this was practically the only video result.
hbjoroy: @OdaviidS Well - I have to say "almost there". It is usable - but I am
having issues with the touch-experience. It is probably a
beta-driver-problem, but it is annoying. The experience with One Note is
good - it performs well, both in Win7 and Win8, problem with Win7 is that
it requires a patience you shouldn't need with a modern computer system.
The battery life is fantastic, so - almost there... I think I wouldn't be
nice if i reccomended this, not with Win7, and not with current Win 8.
ODiS: @hbjoroy how is the tablet for web browsing? Im thinking of buying one esp
for taking notes [writing] and web browsing. Btw, Im a college student.
What are your thoughts?
hbjoroy: Thank you for sharing this - I have a stylistic q550, and didn't get it
running using the vhd dualboot technique of Scott Hanselman - this makes me
want to try to scrap win7 and try win8. The machine is too slow on win7.
Kirkaiya: @Arwengrim Thanks! I am a long-time developer on Windows (over 12 years),
and I used to work at Microsoft, so no worries, I'm used to dealing with
bugs in pre-release software ;-) In any case, wouldn't be able to use the
Q550 as dev machine, the single-core Atom just isn't enough to use Visual
Studio 2010 effectively (I have a Core i5 ThinkPad T410s for that). I'm
just interested in having a "test bed" for testing out software, and it
sounds like this would make for a great budget test-pad!
