    Windows 8.1

    I ran the Windows App Store Repair tool and it suggested that I allow windows to update my device drivers (shudder) and so I enabled this and pointed the WUS to the Microsoft Site (away from my corporate repository) and lo and behold Windows offered an update for the Intel Graphics chip and about 30 other 'optional' updates. Upon applying these I am now able to use the 'modern' apps.

    I am forced to ask, if these updates are optional yet vital to keep that part of my OS working, what am I to think MS is telling me here? I think they are trying to get away from the Modern START menu as fast as they can.... And I could not be happier. I have to say that I love Windows 8 and 8.1 and 8.1.1 but I RARELY use the modern interface - EVER. It is not intuitive and its settings are horrible and half the time the apps don't respond and this thing has been in release for how long? I mean honestly, lets call METRO, the Modern UI, the Modern Start Menu, whatever, what it is - a fail - and move forward to better... Though Windows 10 previews leave me feeling like someone is putting lipstick on the PIG that was the Metro Modern Start Menu, more than it feels like a new OS.
