    Thumbs up This is crazy

    Windows 8.1 on a VM w/ just 2Gigs Ram is faster, snappier & sites in IE11 loading quicker than the Windows 8 host machine and IE10.

    Have, certainly, read heaps about 8.1 suggesting this sort of behavior can be expected

    Just might be the case, too...

    Cheers,

    bassfisher6522, welcome to the Lounge. I also come over to Win 8 Forums (Medicted) occasionally, but do not spend as much time as I once did. I spend a lot more time in my RV forums now. Between the Lounge and the 4 RV forums I participate in, I do not have much time for others.

    Again, welcome to the Lounge.

    Have a Great Day! Ted
