    I don't think they bothered including the GUI.

    With a bit of luck , they are still busy improving it.

    The word reimagining scares me. Not a lot of good has come from this word...
    I said that 4 months ago.

    After having a play with this thing, it now terrifies me.

    Thank's Theog. I found it. Fancy calling it "Restore Windows 7 backups". :banghead:

    I agreed, until I found a post today on MDL, that mentioned renaming the shsxs.dll file to shsxs.dll.old.
    I did and now I have the Win7 type START menu, and some of the Metro goodies, like dual monitor feature, Explorer ribbon.

    Needless to say, but I will anyway - there maybe be some risk involved with this. So far so good for me. I dual boot 7 and 8, keeping up to date backups of both - a less risky this way.
    Here is a simple batch file to accomplish this, simply run it to toggle modes (need to right-click and select Run as administrator).

    Code:
    @echo off
    cd c:\windows\system32
    if exist shsxs.dll (ren shsxs.dll shsxs.dll.old) else (ren shsxs.dll.old shsxs.dll)
    shutdown /r /f
    ModeToggle.txt

    Note that you will need to rename this file to ModeToggle.bat in order to run it. Also note that it toggles the Immersive Applications, such as Sudoku and Copper, On/Off.

    I don't suppose there is any word about when the next build will be released. There is a bug list as long as my arm for 8102...

    Next will probably be the Beta sometime around the end of the year.

    Unless a leak comes out in between that time..
