Just got something awesome in the mail! :D
Well, not really. I actually got it last Thursday but it took me all weekend to set it up just how I like it. Will be posting something of a review about it later, as well as sketches and doodles. (Maybe even s video…)
Edit: Man, I know it’s cool to hate Windows 8 cuz’s it’s what all the cool kids on the internet are doing, but I legitimately enjoy it. A lot. 8 was “ehh.” I’ll give you that. But 8.1 is great. I’ve used Windows 7 since it came out, and now with both 8.1 on my desktop and this little guy here, maaaan it’s hard to look back. It’s fantastic how well they work together. Stuff just works now, unlike before where things would work if I tinkered with it long enough. Plus, on the Cintiq, Windows 8 makes using it as a touchscreen tablet completely painless. Windows 7’s touch and tablet services were awful. (I had extensive first hand experience how terrible it was on my X201T convertible a few years back.) On Windows 8, I can use the on-screen keyboard better than any other touch-screen device I’ve ever used, including the iPad. (I can type at near full speed with few errors.) It’s that much of an improvement. It even communicates properly with Wacom drivers, finally! For once! I don’t have to disable the Windows tablet functions just to get the computer to not bug-out. Use 8.1 for any extended amount of time (I’m talking months, not days or weeks,) and it grows on you in a way that you can’t go back to 7, even on a desktop surprisingly.
