Do you think it's worth it for me to install win 8.1?

    Yup. Try it and see why I don't like it.

    Just had a look at MOdernMix. It certainly would help. Do you think this sells from some MS spinoff? Looks like MS exactly plays right into the hands of such outsourced resources to compensate for their user-unfriendliness.

    Great opportunity for 3rd parties to make millions.

    There you go - it is MS being generous.

    Eeeehhh, I wouldn't run a leaked buggy build as a daily runner. That would be more of a look-see type of thing, not a "let's run this everyday!"

    There will be a public official build of 8.1 this June, about two or so months from now. I'd hold my pants on until then personally.

    If there is one thing I've learned in my life time, it's that 90% of the time a date for tech release will be posponed, sometimes indefinitely.
