    A lack of visual differences does not indicate a lack of "under the hood" improvements.

    Now that I've played around a bit....

    And yes, that IS Win 3.1 in Dos-Box there in the second shot.

    I was perusing around with some .dll files and I ACTUALLY found some Windows 3.1 icons! So weird...

    I'm curious, so you use both start menu and Start Screen? How does that work for you?

    Well, at first I was very anti-Metro (thanks to the DP), so have been using Classic Shell.

    Lately, though, I've been consciously trying to use Metro more, as it does work better
    in the RTM, at least it seems so to me. And there's always the 'old' Start orb if needed.

    The funny thing is, I'm not an old Start Menu 'die-hard' as I never bothered using it at
    all until I got XP in about 2003, but ran everything through Explorer a la Windows 3.1.

    Just goes to show how quickly one can become used to something....:-)



    **Edit: - The fact that I've actually tried to 'tame' the Start Screen in the RTM (whereas I
    didn't really bother in the betas) certainly helps to make it more usable.**

    Wonderful! Can you share the wallpaper?

    Edit: I found it.
