    8.1


    Thanks a lot Hippsie and Guy. Happy you like it. I worked on it several days to manage to reach a point where i was really satisfied. Was also really hard for me to find nice photos to add. Now i could redo it in a few minutes.

    : I m using Oblytiles for the imgs of waves and orcas on the bottom. That s Cristian Lassen art (if any1 will ever wonder =) I also use it for Utorrent and League of Legends icon.
    I m using Tiles maker or Tiles genie for wife + big pictures.

    Sadly they are bugged and every time i want to add a new img i get in troubles. Yesterday, after almost 3 months of perfect tiles changing i wanted to add a new and really charming pic to the set but i m still fighting with it.

    I m also dling the new Win 8 update right now so.. i ll see if anything will change.

    @Guy I have no icons on my desktop aswell. My metro is my dock..

    Eh.. New updates are kinda, bleh.. Don't like most of them.. But it's doable.. The two icons added to the top aren't so bad.. Won't ever use them, but... lol

    Yes, the power button and the search icons aren't too bad, although I'd prefer not to have them. I keep my Desktop app/portal taskbar on the right. Have for years. Screenshot is what I got after the update. Taskbar over Charms bar. Thank MS for we that don't want a SC taskbar are able to turn it off!

    Just a question for you 8 users. Does anyone use docks? Do they work on 8, are they needed? I don't have icons on my desktop any more. I use a dock in 7.

    I haven't heard of anyone using docks, not even the h8ers. We that post on this thread are usually Modern/Metro purist, so therefore use the SC.

    It just occurred to me. Have you ever used this system at all. I would guess you have seen a running SC with live tiles and all, but have you used it at all?

    No, Edwin. The Charms bar is great! It's the Taskbar I don't want to see on my SC.

    That's quite alright, Edwin. I know you're always trying to be helpful and succeed a lot.

    Yes, we find our own way of doing and performing things.

    Nope, never tried 8. Smallish SSD, and it's also used for work related things. Can't afford to play, so I carry on with 7. Also, no desire to change to 8 in any flavor. Not a hater, just a not needeer.
