    Thanks you much. Now if some more features role to the start button Windows 8.1 will be the best Windows I have ever used.

    That's how we are calling the actual Preview "Start Button", because it doesn't show the "Start Menu", but takes you to the "Start Screen".

    Ah, what a waste!

    I hope Stardock releases an update to Start8 so it will work with 8.1.

    Thanks.

    After some hours playing with the Preview I'm back to may production environment. Tomorrow I'll start to test lots of programs and games to make a compatibility list for Preview. I installed the Preview in a 200GB physical partition especially to accommodate everything I want to test.

    Today I need to sleep. Since yesterday afternoon I'm stuck in front of the computer because of that release. My wife says that I'm addicted, and I guess she's right.

    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center


    I downloaded the installer & sat for 3 hours watching please wait & tiny balls rotating.

    I booted into safe mode/recovery with BootUI Tuner {It's worth it's weight in gold}.

    Did a system restore & am happy now.

    8.1 will not be installed on my computer.

    Maybe Windows 15.1................
