Re: ThinkPad software for Windows 8

Lenovo Support. They only take action when it comes down to censorship. Thanks for deleting my previous post. You guys should seriously think about how you deal with customers!!!

Just in case you didn't noticed: Most people don't choose Lenovo because of the hardware, it's because of the good reputation and support!

 If the support and the drivers are crap, why should I buy Lenovo and not *insert any manufactory here*.

Re: ThinkPad software for Windows 8

This is common with forums everywhere, I wouldn't get too excited about it.

Now, I don't know what has been written that mandated removal but it doesn't matter now. I'd rater it doesn't get blown out of proportions for all the wrong reasons.

There is no need to create discussion about it and get all personal about it. We can voice our frustrations with the situation but lets keep it civil and on topic.

 

Just the snippet from the forum FAQ:

It is fair to state disagreement with facts or conclusions that another member has posted, but dissent must be expressed in an objective, and reasoned manner. Treat others with the respect you wish to receive. Remember that the community is here to share collective experiences and wisdom, with the goal of all members enjoying greater success with their Lenovo products. Consider whether your comments serve to advance the discussion in a positive direction.

No Trolling or deliberate disruption of discussion . Inflammatory post or thread titles are unacceptable and may be moderated.

 

Inflammatory, or unnecessarily argumentative postings will be considered trolling. Extended debate with moderators or admins over their decisions with regard to moderation of posts is considered trolling. Do not subvert threads. No vendetta posts, or online campaigning. It is acceptable to state concern for how a particular Lenovo policy, performance, or procedure does or does not meet the expectation of a particular member, but it is not acceptable to use this forum in an attempt to broadly organize or incite members en mass, to cancel orders, return systems, undertake legal action or otherwise disrupt the normal business processes of Lenovo.

 

 

 

I'd like to highlight that decision by Lenovo still remains to not update the treasure trove of existing software and the new toys'r'us apps are still here to stay (on selected systems) so lets focus on how to bring the attention to the problem in a constructive way, not be part of the problem.

 

There are several ways we can do that, if all else fails the last option is the old one, to vote with your wallet.

Let's take matters into our own hands in the meantime, Is there anyway to manipulate the windows 8 app store channel ID in the registry to trick the store into thinking that the windows 8 installation is a pre-install and not an upgrade? Maybe if we can do that then we will be able to get the Lenovo apps we need on our system. I'm surprised no one has been able to do this yet.

I was looking at it but so far i cannot locate the origin of the ID

Windows 7 channel ID was linked and was part of the product key itself but here is not, at least I can't see it.

 

Quck EDIT: I'd really like to have the old software updated. Imagine, Power Manager for Think Desktops and Ideapad/station is updated for win 8, but thinkpads not. The irony...
