    Dual Boot: Back to W7 and Ubuntu 12.04


    Interesting list, looks like they are trying to get a head of the BYOD curve. That's good as most people don't even think about it.

    We shall see what becomes of it....

    Geeve

    This is what I'm wanting to see and just how they re did the "improvements" ............... Too bad they won't bring back the W7 Aero, W8 has no sparkle anymore, Personal computers are just that , personal. I use a 27" Samsung attached to my laptop, and have no need or the reach to touch anything, I don't have a Iphone, or any cell phone so I'm not into touching that either. If I ever did find a need for one than that would be what I needed to touch, not my big screen 5 feet away.

    Boot to Desktop

    We have made configuration options available which will allow you to boot directly to the desktop in Windows 8.1.
    Desktop and Start Screen

    Improvements have been made to better support users who prefer a mouse and keyboard experience to access applications.

    Ditto, and I do like the small tiles as well.

    That's about all that's in it for me.

Whats NOT, not what's hot in General Support
There's been a lot of talk about what's new and improved in Windows 8. What I'd really like to know, though, is what's NOT in Windows 8. We've all been down the experiences with Windows 7 Explorer having much of it's functionality ripped out, and various other deletions from the functionality...
