A review done by PC Revue of Slovakia on Kupa X11 running Windows in both printed version and online. Please click on the below picture to go to the review article:
Many of our customers like our simple yet effective theme for X11. They especially like the enlarged scroll bar, fonts and menu. Some decided to modify it further and then have problem returning to how it looks originally. This theme is very lightweight at only 100KB and will work on any Windows 7 device. So even if you don’t have a X11, or if even a tablet but wants a larger scroll bar and other easier to click updates, you can use this them pack.
1) Download above theme pack
2) Double Click on the theme pack to install

We want to first compliment Brad on the most comprehensive review of any x86 based tablet computer running Windows 8 preview up to date.
Good jobs, Brad.
Regarding the comments on slow performance in Windows 8 preview, especially when using graphically intensive application, we agree that the user experience should be faster and smoother even though Windows 8 preview is still in beta. We believe that while Intel Oaktrail processor may not be the super speedster like Intel i5/i7, it is still packs enough processing power to run most Apps smoothly. We will continue to optimize X11 for Windows 8 and provide driver support (especially for the graphic card) for Windows 8 on hardware side and look to Microsoft to round up the rough edges exist in the Windows 8 Preview edition.

Kupa Web Store
X11′s protective film not only protects the screen from scratches, it also reduces glare, limits fingerprint marks, and very importantly, adds a little bit of resistance to stylus tip to further enhance writing feel. Not only will we be giving them away with your X11, we will install it for you to save you hassle.
In addition, free shipping on all X11′s purchased on the Kupa’s Web Store. So what are you waiting for?
Kupa X11 earned 4 out of 5 start from leading authority on Personal Computing, the PC Magazine.
“The Kupa X11 Pro is a strong entry into the Windows tablet space, with a long-lasting battery, a healthy selection of ports, vigorous performance, and an interface that makes your fingers feel right at home.”
We especially want to dedicate this part of review to our engineers who worked tirelessly to optimize X11′s performance. This one is for you and for our loyal customers:
” But even though the hardware inside is the same, the performance is not. In the processor test CineBench, the Kupa X11 Pro scored 0.26 point, leaving the Q550 and the CL900 (both scored 0.19) in the dust.”
After several days of testing, we have successfully installed the driver for X11′s built-in fingerprint scanner in Windows 8.
Turn on .Net 3.5 support

Downloand the latest fingerprint driver at
Install the driver using the “Windows 7″ Compatibility mode
right click on the driver installation file and click on property and you will see something like this:
Check “Run this program in compatibility mode for” and select Windows 7
4) Install the driver, reboot and set it up.
The driver is still not fully ready for Windows 8 yet and you can’t use it to login at Windows login, but still useful for other purpose.
We will update our users as soon as we have new drivers for any of X11 components.
Many Windows applications requires .Net 3.5 yet it is not pre-installed on Windows 8 Preview.
Microsoft has published an article to help user enabling .Net 3.5 support in Windows 8
The .NET Compact Framework version 3.5 expands support for distributed mobile applications by including the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) technology. It also adds new language features such as LINQ, new APIs based on community feedback, and improves debugging with updated diagnostic tools and features.
