I installed Workstation TP on Windows 8 Beta on a HP 6710b Notebook with 2GB Ram. Ubuntu has assigned 512MB Ram, starts up and has Video issues. As soon as I disable Accelerate 3D Graphics, everything works fine. But this acceleration worked fine under Workstation 8.
TP has 3-D acceleration enabled by dfault - WS 8 has the reverse. I wish TP was like WS 8 - I have to disable 3-D acceleration quite often - there is a warning but its a nuisance.
