Theres a key that activates it without any need for cracks
Having troubles getting red pill to work though.
As said, VirtualBox has issues with the addons. makes Windows 8 slow graphics wise =/
Cant wait for 64-bit release.That wil be when I use it as a main OS
Just as with Windows Vista and 7, you have to boot into Safe Mode to install the Guest Additions; otherwise, Windows File Protection interferes.
I have it installed on a *spare* hard drive in a dual-boot with 7 x64 and it's plenty fast enough (faster than either Windows 7 SP1 (7601) or 7850, despite the slower SATA HDD). The quibbles are expected - some issues with IE 9 and add-ins/plug-ins therefore, Norton 360 overzealously eats two files critical to 7955's changed networking stack (I switched to Avast 6 due to that - MSE won't install due to the OS itself being too different). ISOs (in addition to VHDs) mount directly (so much for virtual-disk/drive utilities, such as VirtualCloneDrive or Daemon Tools) - this is something that even 7601 doesn't do. You can burn ISOs directly, but not mount them, in 7601.

After a few bad installs, I got this working in VBox 4.0.4, with 2.3GB RAM 128MB graphics and the "Intel PRO MT Desktop" for my network connections, the PCNet network adaptors for some reason would not work with me
also got Red-pill working and unlocked the pattern logon
I haven't tried any of the other features yet

Windows 8 is working fine for me, dual boot on my laptop. Redpilled fine, only thing not working is that firefox keeps crashing for some reason. Anyone else having this problem?
yea having the same problem. it only happens on some sites. sad thing is flash videos with audio works fine on firefox and chrome which doesn't crash doesnt work well with flash. it plays the video but doesn't output the sound.
