    Almost everyone I have met in person who has win 8 dislikes the UI and our users on win8 keep asking to be changed back. I really dislike the new start screen as I find it far less efficient. But the core OS is nice.
    Throw start 8 on it and it's perfectly. It has GPO support as well. I really want to deploy it here....

    Can anyone point me in the direction of documentation of equivalent depth and quality to the Windows Resource Kits for 8 (or 8.1)

    Hi Guys and girls

    My first post here.
    I´m in the process of pushing out 2000 pcs. Windows 8.1 HP Revolve on 2012 servers with 2012 R2 policy definitions.
    Exactly the policy issue has been quite a challenge as we are still keeping around 2200 Windows 7 clients that has to keep functioning as they did.
    Users should be able 2 use both platforms and access the same printers and shares from both.
    Windows 7 and Windows 8 policies dont mix very well, so clearly we had to start over with a new OU structure for the 2000 new HP Revolve clients. Having win8 clients in the same structure as our Windows 7 clients rendered the win 8 lost in Metro with no tiles, no desktop, no control panel, no nothing. Utterly useless.F
    or most part "user policies" held all these restrictions on the Win 8 clients,which was a mountain to climb.C
    hanging user policies was not an option, so Loopback processing mode had to be applied and one-by-one examining policies step by step, for possible candidates for the win 8 lockdown.
    Yesterday we´ve delivered the first 500 new clients(ended up with win8.1), mostly for teachers and except for minor wishes of loosening the grip a bit, policywise.
    We´ve had no complaints, we havent even had a phonecall about those clients today. My log files tell me, that they use them heavily.I
    ´m a bit stumped, I thought Win 8 would drive them crazy. Ahhh, well, it´s still early, but looking good so far.
    I´ve had a problem though with a certain searchocr.admx file, that ruins the group policy manager on the server.
    The corrupt admx files are supposedly in all iso´s for win8 and server 2012 and 2012R2??? MS has no fix???
    Maybe someone has run in to the same issue and solved it.
    I need at least one of the settings in the R2 policy definitions, to control the new clients, so rolling back to the regular server 2012 definitions isn´t an option either.

    No we dont, but we have folder redirection on 3 folders. Desktop, Favorites, and Documents, so it sort of smells like it.

    The reason for the useless stuck win8, was the very strict policies we have on existing pc´s and users.
    They are very locked down.
    Keeps the workload down.
    The new clients, will be more personal pc´s, they will bring them home and as such they have to function in a very different way, than our existing locked down clients. (Adding device drivers, printers, internet connections, changing wallpaper etc.)
