    Hi all,

    I am currently testing Windows 8 DP on HP Slate2 and still have few issues.
    - Hotkeys don't work
    - Screen rotation doesn't work
    - I also still have few devices without drivers in Device Manager:
    - Base System Device
    - multiple PCI Simple Communication Controller (bluetooth)
    - HP HSPA software crashes on startup
    - touch is very frustrating after iPad and Android use experience

    But my overall impression is OK. I hope Windows 8 Consumer Preview will bring some improvements.

    What is your experience with Win8 on Slate2?

    Thanks for your feedbacks.

    We might be among the few with the slate 2. So far, with my installation and full use of all drivers,

    Keyboard button works 1% of the time, home button doesn't, CTRL-ALT-DEL works fine.

    Screen rotation randomly works some of the time. Maybe 5% of the time. It's working right now. Might not next time I restart.

    Bluetooth works fine. Didn't install cellular, have no use for it yet.

    Touch is laggy and not good still on CP, i really hope that a couple last tweaks and lowered system reqs or something before the final release will help bridge that last gap. See thread on W8 on Slates above, because relief from n-trig might be on the way.
