Kohjinsha SC3 runs Windows 8 wonderfully

Kohnjinsha_windows_8

While UMPCs have basically gone away, we still have a sweetspot for news stories about them. So when we found that the Kohjinsha SC3 is among the older devices capable of running Windows 8, we simply became overly excited and just had to bring you a story about it. 

According to a post on our very own forums, the SC3 has the potential to run Windows 8 on a daily basis, unless you're obsessed with playing Flash videos and games: Flash is supported in Windows 8 (yet.) But if you can get past that issue until Windows 8 is finished and released to the world, then your SC3 will definitely be getting a few more years of use. 

The only other thing that seems to be an issue is the fact that the SC3's resolution of 1024 x 768 isn't supported with Metro. The Metro UI requires a resolution with aspect ratio 16:9, so all you have to do to get Metro running on your SC3 is to add the 1024 x 600 resolution to your igdlh32.inf file.
