    Just installed the latest on an ASUS Notebook.
    No issues and unlike the last preview, this time I have sound.

    Since I will not be taking this out in public or accessing my mail, any way to getting around entering my password, so that when system boots, goes right to the Start (metro) screen?

    got it
    OK to close this post.

    Took a bit via Google, hence my post. then found a solution:
    Win Key + R
    enter netplwiz
    uncheck the box "users must enter a user name & password to use this computer."

    enter password to accept.
    apply and OK

    Instead of using a MS account to log in with you can just use a local account.

    That's a neat trick there. However I am already so used to entering the password, I will probably leave it the way it is. Kind of feel a bit unusual not to log in.
