That's what I'd like to know as well. I've heard of these new features/enhancements, but have not actually seen them in the flesh on my own system.

That would be nice to have ;)

Read where someone took files from an older build and made it work.

These files might be the ones needed, haven't tried it yet.

TaskUI, Have read there that you have to add files from a previous build, think I'll wait for confirmation.



Edit: Red Pill 1.3.0.1 fixes the Task Manager UI and ribbon icons.

Windows 8 System Reserved

For what's it's worth, if MS had any sense they'd set the System Reserved, for use with Windows 8 back to the original size of 200MB so users would stop having the ongoing issues with the SysResv being too small when used in conjunction with the Windows Backup and Restore and BitLocker programs as suggested in Step Two #3 of this tutorial at the link below.

If y'all want to see this and you're not dual booting, restart the PC and start continually tapping the space bar to force the Windows 8 boot manager. ;)
