I decided to upgrade to Windows 8 because… well, mostly I was curious.
I’ve not had much time to play with it yet but it looks pretty good. It’s fast, seems stable and (to my surprise) the Modern UI is actually quite nice. I’m in the process of finding some good news apps and a couple of more lighthearted ones.
Some time later this week I’ll have to get Visual C++ installed so I can get back to coding. Until then I’ll not be doing any VST work, except for maybe a little on Mac for an experiment I’m designing. I’ve plenty of other stuff to do anyway so the VSTs might have to wait. I’d not had any complaints yet anyway.
Time will tell if upgrading to Windows 8 was folly for audio and coding work. So far it’s looking pretty positive.
